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

On Location, Or Remote.

Your HARRISONBURG, VIRGINIA MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE

An audio engineering school in Harrisonburg, Virginia? Certainly! The RECORDING CONNECTION is the Harrisonburg Audio Engineering School alternative that places you as an audio student extern inside an actual Harrisonburg recording studio, where you will work with the pros as you learn audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (electronica, dub fusion, acid house, jungle and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. In Harrisonburg, there’s no better way to get started in a career in audio than by externing at a Harrisonburg recording studio–and no better recording school alternative than the RECORDING CONNECTION to get your foot in the door.

Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars to go to an audio engineering trade school when you can spend far less money and go to our audio engineering school alternative in a real recording studio. Play it smart, get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio engineering school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program available.

Home to James Madison University, the town of Harrisonburg is located in the Shenandoah Valley of northern Virginia, hosting a population of about 45,000 people. Despite its small size and seemingly remote location, Harrisonburg hosts an active music scene, fueled at least in part by the presence of the college. Local bands and musicians, as well as some touring acts, regularly play in venues around the area, in styles ranging from jazz to folk to rock.  Popular venues include the Clementine Cafe and the basement of the Blue Nile. House concerts are also a popular music staple in this area.

To accommodate the ongoing needs of the music scene, a number of recording studios make their home in the Harrisonburg area. Whether your interest is in recoding, producing, mixing or mastering, you’ll find plenty of learning opportunities in Harrisonburg.

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!
