Situated in southern Ontario about 100 km southwest of Toronto, the city of Kitchener is home to about 205,000 people, while the nearby town of Waterloo is home to about 100,000. Although not an area many people readily associate with the music industry, the Kitchener-Waterloo area has an active music scene, with numerous local area bands playing in a wide range of genres in venues throughout the area. While larger and touring acts make stops at larger venues like The Aud and Queensmount Arena, smaller bands play in more intimate venues like the Starlight Night Club. The Kitchener-Waterloo area also hosts several annual music festivals, including the KOI Music Festival and the Kitchener Blues Festival. Notable acts with ties to this area include metal band Helix, alt-rock band Vacuity, DJ Mike Shannon, blues artist Mel Brown, and singer/songwriter Danny Michel, to name a few.

A number of recording studios make their home in the Kitchener-Waterloo area to accommodate the ongoing needs of the music scene. If you’re dreaming of becoming a music producer, sound designer, audio engineer or live audio tech, you’ll find plenty of real-world learning opportunities in the Kitchener-Waterloo area–and RECORDING CONNECTION can get you close to the action in ways other recording schools can’t.

Our industry edge comes from our mentor-extern approach. Rather than place you in a stale classroom like other schools, we put you in a real recording studio to receive one-on-one training from a seasoned industry professional. As you gain hands-on experience working on real recording projects, you’ll also make plenty of industry connections, giving you the insider’s edge on job openings long before the students in the classrooms. Many of our graduates get hired, and you could be next. You owe it to yourself to find out what our Kitchener-Waterloo Recording School can do for your career.

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!
