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

On Location, Or Remote.

We hit different and here is why:

The creative class has always been a little bit… different. Actors, artists, musicians – they don’t adhere to timecards, don’t do cubicles, and don’t follow the crowd. At Recording Connection, we operate the same way when it comes to our AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS in Houston, TX.

Unlike four-year universities or trade schools, we don’t just tell you about music production, recording, editing, mixing, and mastering – we show you. Inside a real-world music recording studio, working one-on-one with an industry professional acting as your mentor.

Hands-on training alongside PRO MUSIC PRODUCERS that work with local acts as well as international stars. The Recording Connection will teach you how to get the most out of your digital audio workstation as well as music theory, sound design, and the business side of the music business.

Our curriculum is based on today’s audio industry needs. You set your schedule. Mentors will concentrate on what you need, not what a syllabus says. This is a different way of learning, the Recording Connection way.

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!

Close to Home or In Your Home
10 Miles, 10 Blocks, Or 10 Seconds from Your Future as a Music Industry Professional

As they say, everything is bigger in Texas. And Houston is the biggest, most populated city in the state. You can expect to find any number of HOUSTON AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS to learn the art of professional audio recording, post-production, editing, and so on. Recording Connections has four studios alone in Houston. You may live just a mile or two away from us. But how would you like to be even closer? Even before Covid-19 shut everything down, the Recording Connection offered remote learning for those that needed to stay close to home. You will still receive the education you need to pursue your music career, just in a way that protects both you and our mentors.

Does A Career In The Music Industry Sound Too Good To Be True?
It isn't. Become a Music Legend. You are too good not to be true to your dreams. Get Started Now.

Revolutionary Music and Audio Engineering Programs

Work with the Stars and Amplify

When it comes to audio engineering schools in Houston, there are many to choose from. But we feel we offer what no other institution: Opportunity. The opportunity to learn from industry heavy hitters, to gain experience while you learn, and the opportunity to build your brand and your portfolio. But Houston is a big city, and just like in L.A., N.Y., or any other metro area, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. From day one, you’ll start to make those connections. First with your mentor, then with acts that come through the door, other engineers, producers, and others. What will you do with these opportunities? Learn the industry from the inside, build a brand, and produce your portfolio - it’s all part of the HOUSTON RECORDING CONNECTION PROGRAM. A university may have name recognition, but after four years, all they offer is a degree. With us, you could be networking with future colleagues within the first week. What makes more sense?

Here's what Former Houston Students have to Say About Recording Connection

I learned a lot from both my mentor Matt O' Neil and my Academic facilitator Sam Zulfer. They taught me how to listen to music I love and use it to help create my own mixes. To make sure I listen to my mixes on as many platforms aw possible get a better idea about what my mixes really sound like. I also learned a lot from being in the studio. i learned from observing them mixing and how they deal with clients. Although I know I still have a lot to learn, I know I have a strong start because of this program. Thank You!!!!

Melissa Humphrey in Pearland, Texas

Since I started the recording connection audio engineer program I have learned so much! The program really gives you everything you need to know to start a career in the music industry. They provide you with video lessons within each chapter you are being taught which really helps and let’s you visually see someone walking you through it. They provide you with files on files of audio as well so you can download it and work on your mixing to keep you busy at home. I’m in the Houston, TX area so they placed me in Studio 713 to be able to overlook their audio engineers and see how the actual life of an audio engineer is. Studio 713 is a great studio, I love that I get to show up whenever and work on music. I have only positive things to say, about this program, definitely recommend. My online mentor Sam Zulfur was also great he really helped me and always kept in touch.

You’ve got to put in your effort. You have to show the studio you’re actually going to show up, you’re going to be there, you’re going to work hard, and you know your stuff.
