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

On Location, Or Remote.

Billing itself as New Jersey’s “First Green Community,” Highland Park is located along the northern bank of the Raritan River. With Rutgers University close by and the Johnson & Johnson headquarters located just across the river in New Brunswick, Highland Park has established itself as a comfortable place to live.

Featuring a Farmer’s Market, an annual “Arts in Park” event and even an outdoor movie theater in the summer, the city is lively and diverse. Donaldson Park offers tennis and basketball courts, ball fields, play area, and dog park along the river. Complete with maple-lined neighborhood streets as well as a vibrant downtown area, Highland Park is an excellent place to live.

But don’t let that “bedroom community” vibe fool you into thinking you have to leave your neighborhood to lay down hip-hop beats or engineer ear-splitting guitar solos. To learn about the music industry, you don’t have to go to New York, Newark, or even New Brunswick. The Recording Connection in Highland Park will give you access to state of the art equipment and the opportunity to work with industry professionals.

Recording Connection has two advantages over the traditional college or university experience. Instead of a classroom, we put you in the studio from the start. One day you’ll be setting up the mics for an upcoming session, the next you could be manning the soundboard. With our programs, you’ll get hands-on experience with every aspect of the recording industry.

And you’ll do it for a lot less money. Not only do our programs cost less than a four-year school, but you’ll also save money by staying in your neighborhood. Gas money, tolls, and the time it takes to drive to another city – or state! – are expenses you won’t have to worry about by staying in Highland Park.

But you have to want it. When you enroll at Recording Connection, you’ll be expected to put in the work it takes to become successful. Many of our students find work right after completing our programs, often at the very studio they externed at. But those are the students who give everything they have during their time with us.

Do you think you have what it takes? Apply 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!
