Elevated Audio and Music Production Programs
Work with the Stars and Amplify
Of everything Recording Connection offers program enrollees - real-world experience, working with industry insiders, an understanding of music theory, and even the physics of sound - there’s only one thing that will truly dictate how far you go in the music industry.
Opportunity. And we’re not talking about the opportunity to work with the latest and greatest gear, creating your brand, or growing your portfolio (although that’s certainly a plus!). In addition to placing you with a mentor who owns or manages a working studio, we put you in front of potential clients almost every week.
Yes - it’s important to know what you’re doing. And hopefully, you’ll take in everything your mentors teach you. But in order to make it in this business, you need to make a name for yourself. The only way to do that is to prove yourself when that red recording light goes on. By proving your worth on every session with every client, you’ll make sure the people that need to know your name will know it.
We give you the opportunity to make yourself indispensable. Our best graduates - the ones who work hard, act responsibly, and understand this is a business - are the ones that find work almost immediately. Because they proved their worth when those opportunities presented themselves.
Graduates have found work at the studios they learned in, caught on at other studios because of good word of mouth, or even opened their own studio because of the client list they created. Some students have even been hired to go on the road with an artist before they’ve finished the program!
It’s all because they took advantage of the opportunities right in front of them. What opportunities will present themselves to you? And how will you respond? The Kansas City Recording Connection program will give you the opportunity to find out.
