Music Scene in
Highland Park CA
YOUR HIGHLAND PARK, CA, RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE
One of the first subdivisions of the Los Angeles area, Highland Park is located at the foot of the San Rafael Hills. The Highland Park area is mere minutes away from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and an hour from Beverly Hills, yet far enough away to serve as a haven for artists who appreciate the downtempo appeal, mom and pops shops, and alternative coffee houses.
Call it a return to its roots. A century ago, Highland Park was a mecca for the artsy-craftsy sect. Chicano art collectives thrived some 40 years ago, and a punk scene started making noise in the ’90s. Now, the area is filled with bistros, boutiques, and a re-birth of its historic charm.
There’s room for a little of that glitz and glamor. Multiple Grammy winner Skrillex was born in Highland Park and Billie Eilish grew up in the area before releasing multiple gold and platinum singles. Marc Maron even produces his podcast from his Highland Park garage.
The Recording Connection in Highland Park is optimally situated for those who want to be close to the recording industry without having to be at ground zero. The Recording Connection for Ableton Electronic Music Production, Hip Hop & Beat Making programs, and other offerings get you hands-on learning and doing right from the start.
That’s what sets Recording Connection apart from other trade schools or 4-year universities. You’ll be placed in a Highland Park studio, working one-on-one with an experienced mentor in a live studio. As an in-studio extern with us, you could be working with up-and-coming indie artists or internationally-known artists while you get your bearings and grow connections with working professionals in the area.
And that’s the way it goes in the recording industry. There is on constant, however: you’ll be working hard the entire time. The externs that are the most successful are the ones that put in the most effort. Dedication, responsibility, and a desire to learn every day – in the studio and out – have led to jobs for many of our graduates.
