The Grand Junction, Colorado Recording Connection Audio School Advantage


1

Located Everywhere.

The Recording Connection has hundreds of locations across the US, Canada, the UK and Australia. This means you can train for an audio engineering career right here in Grand Junction, or nearly anywhere else you choose to live.

The other guys don't come close. Advantage: Recording Connection.

2

Extremely Low Tuition Means Little or No Debt.

There's no point in training for a career in music production only to be buried in student debt when you get out of school. With the Recording Connection, that won't happen to you. We keep our tuition low so you can keep your costs manageable. Most of our students graduate with little or no debt.

The other guys not only cost more, they have lots of add-on charges. Advantage: Recording Connection.

3

Learn In a Real Recording Studio.

With our alternative training approach, you won't spend a single day in a college or trade school classroom—not one. Instead, you'll be learning the ropes inside a real recording studio.

Advantage: Recording Connection.

4

Learn from a Real Professional.

Who better to teach you music producing and audio engineering than someone who actually works in the business? To make it in this competitive industry, you don't just need a teacher—you need a mentor. That's how our program works—you'll be learning one-on-one from a real audio engineer or music producer.

With us, you are always number one. Advantage: Recording Connection.

5

Our Mentors Are Tops.

No kidding: they're the best. We're not just saying that because we like them: we're saying it because it's a reality.

We Help You With Job Placement. Really.

If we simply teach you the skills of producing and recording without enabling you to establish a career in this business, we haven't done our job. That's why we have a job assistance program that is second to none, designed to work actively with you to find you work for up to a year after you graduate. Bear in mind, though, this is actually more of a safety net: learning in a real recording studio means a great many of our students get hired without our help. But it's there when you need it.

The other guys give you a cold-call lead list when you graduate. Advantage: Recording Connection.

7

The Pros Like Us. A Lot.

Our on-the-job training program is recommended by some of the top movers and shakers in the music industry. We're known as the school that helps you break into the business, because we've geared our program about how the business works!

You can count the number of pros who recommend the other guys on one hand. Advantage: Recording Connection.

8

Become an Industry Insider.

While learning the ropes inside a real recording studio, something remarkable happens: you become one of the pack: an insider. You aren't just some kid hanging around the studio who wants to be a producer—you are someone who is known by name. This alone gives you a huge advantage over the unknown graduates of those other schools who are sending in resumes without any prior introduction. When job openings occur, your foot is already in the door.

The other guys are on the outside, looking in. Advantage: Recording Connection.

9

Free Tutoring.

We try to make sure no one falls through the cracks. If you fall behind on homework or get stuck, we offer free tutoring whenever you need it.

Unlimited free tutoring. Advantage: Recording Connection.

10

Connections.

Ask anyone in this business and they'll tell you: connections are vital to making it in the music industry. You can be the most talented producer on the planet, but if no one knows you, no one's going to hire you. Perhaps one of the greatest advantages to learning in a real recording studio is that you are spending time in the places where the pros hang out, making lots of connections that can one day help drive your career.

Real world music industry connections. Big Advantage: Recording Connection.
