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

On Location, Or Remote.

Hollywood. For many, it conjures up the golden age of film, Paramount Studios, the Walk of Fame, the Hollywood sign. But Hollywood is also home to some of the worlds most influential bands and artists. From Snoop Dogg to The Doors, Ice Cube to Jane’s Addiction, The Black Eyed Peas to Maroon 5, No Doubt to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Hollywood is fertile ground for music makers who are fierce and unapologetically unique.

Today, Hollywood is seeing a resurgence in the arts as creatives from all over the nation move to the mecca and make it their home. Musicians, composers, producers, audio engineers, as well as actors and writers, are flocking to the iconic Hollywood neighborhood once more. As a result, independent music making and filmmaking are on the rise and the local culture is booming with expression. It’s unlike anything you’ll find anywhere else.

The Hollywood area of Los Angeles, totaling just 30.7 square miles, is an icon unto itself. For nearly a century, Hollywood has been the epicenter of the movie-making industry. Paramount, RKO, Warner Bros. and Columbia Pictures were among the first studios to make Hollywood their home. By the 1920s, Hollywood was the fifth-largest industry in the U.S. By the ’30s, Hollywood was cranking out 600 films a year. It didn’t take long for other entertainment industries to take notice. Television studios and music companies followed suit. Located on Vine, just north of Hollywood Blvd, The Capitol Records building is another familiar sight of the Hollywood skyline.

Christina Applegate, Liza Minnelli, Alison Brie, and Vince Neil were all born in Hollywood, while the likes of Brandy, Cher, and Sarah Jessica Parker attended Hollywood High School. Sure, you’ll find bankers, lawyers, and doctors living in Hollywood too, but we doubt you’ll see them in the Hollywood Wax Museum.

Our point? If you want to make your name in the music business, Hollywood isn’t a bad place to start. With its close proximity to Los Angeles, local, national, and international acts spend a lot of time working in the area. Want to work with them?

That’s where Recording Connection might be able to help.

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!
