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

On Location, Or Remote.


If you thought there were no good music recording schools in the Huntsville-Decatur area, take another look! The RECORDING CONNECTION is the only Huntsville-Decatur music school that gets you inside an actual recording studio in Huntsville or Decatur, where you will study as a recording studio student extern while you learn your choice of audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle and more), post production audio and club DJ. The smartest way to launch a career in audio recording in the Huntsville-Decatur area is by working as a recording extern inside a Huntsville-Decatur recording studio–and that’s where we come in.

Don’t be fooled; it can cost you up to 50 thousand dollars or more (plus relocation) to go to a music recording trade school somewhere. Why do that, when for a fraction of that amount you can go to music school right here in the Huntsville-Decatur area? Be smart, learn from the pros, and get connected as you get educated. No one gets you there more easily or cost-effectively than our music school alternative.

Located in northern Alabama along the Tennessee River, the cities of Huntsville and Decatur together serve as anchor cities for a metro area with a combined population of over half a million people. Aerospace is one of the defining economic factors of the region, with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center located at nearby Redstone Arsenal. While its music scene is not nationally well-known, the Huntsville-Decatur area has been home to musicians such as blues-rocker Bo Bice and emo band Northstar. The area regularly hosts live music influenced by musical styles from both Alabama and Tennessee, in live venues such as Sammy Ts Music Hall, the Alabama Opry, and a number of others. While country and rock encompass the lion’s share of live music, genres such as jazz, blues, metal and punk are also represented.

In addition to the live music scene, the Huntsville-Decatur is also home to several recording studios meeting the needs of the musical acts in the area. Whether your interest is in recording engineering, live audio engineering or music production, you’ll find plenty of opportunity here in the Huntsville-Decatur area.

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!

Learn Audio Engineering in a Real Recording Studio.
"I have learned a lot since I have been in the Recording Connection program, and almost everything there is to know about live recording. I noticed when setting up the recording sessions that I get training on mic placement…and interacting with the band has boosted my people skills. The great thing is that I have learned very quickly. "
