Why learn audio or music production from an instructor on a campus when you can learn from a pro in his or her Glendale studio?

On Location, Or Remote.

Glendale, CA is home to legendary Armenian-American Heavy Metal band System of a Down. Serg Tankian and the boys have sold over 40 million records to date and have been nominated for four Grammy Awards. You also may not realize that some of your favorite artists have recorded in Glendale with Recording Connection mentors at studios you could learn.

How’d you like to learn as an extern at a studio where Kendrick Lamar has recorded?

Located less than 10 miles to the North of Los Angeles, Glendale is also home to Dreamworks Studios. The maker of the Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, and Madagascar franchises, Dreamworks has won three Academy Awards, including one for best original song. But entertainment isn’t limited to the big screen in Glendale.

Glendale is the hometown of many entertainment stars from the last decade. John Cho of Harold and Kumar fame and Eva Mendes both attended Hoover High School in the city and Paul Walker of the Fast and The Furious franchise was born here.

Pop Punk band Go Betty Go originated in Glendale, Linkin Park DJ Joe Hahn grew up in Glendale, and Sam Phillips, who composed music for TV hit “Gilmore Girls” was born here. With its close proximity to Los Angeles, Hollywood, Burbank, the San Fernando Valley (home to thousands of music, film and TV celebrities), Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Venice, etc. Glendale is perfectly situated for those looking to begin a career in the music industry as a DJ, composer, a Live Music Engineer, or as a composer for film and TV scores.

The Glendale Recording Connection location is a great place to get your foot in the recording industry door. Literally! From day one, you’ll be working one-on-one with an industry mentor inside of a professional studio. The Abstract is just one of a growing list of Recording Connection studios where you can get hands-on training from a mentor.

The Abstract is a professional studio that has worked with some of the biggest names in music: Kendrick Lamar, Portugal. The Man, and Nicki Minaj as well as Atlantic Records, Netflix, and the Discovery Channel.

See? You don’t even have to make the trip down I-5 to potentially work with industry superstars. If you’re looking for an audio engineering and music production school – and have the drive to work hard every day you’re in the studio – stay in Glendale and avoid the traffic. Apply to Recording Connection today.

How are we different than other professional audio engineering schools?

We took that old stale classroom concept, rebuilt and upgraded it by putting your classroom in a professional recording studio.Then we emptied out all the other students and left only YOU and YOUR TEACHER (yay for one-on-one learning!) who happens to be a pro music producer (with killer credits) to train you privately (at your pace, full time, part time, nights or weekends available).

Your hands-on learn-by-doing experience starts here!
