We use a blended education model to help our extern students grow their understanding of audio engineering and music production practices and technology. Students complete coursework in their eBooks and reading and various assignments, quizzes, and tests are completed via the eBook and Student Portal on the students own time and a location of their choosing, such as at home, in a cafe, or elsewhere. Once online lessons are completed for that particular week, a student then goes into their externship location i.e. the recording studio to receive direct, one-on-one instruction with their mentor. Hence, theories, practices, and other information is often first delivered to students in the eBook text materials, then gone over and discussed in detail during the in-studio lesson. With our approach you can start building the audio or music career you want to have in Knoxville, Tennessee. Get your foot in the door when you become an extern in a Knoxville recording studio and learn the ins-and-outs of audio with our recording school alternative, the RECORDING CONNECTION, we get your foot in the door.

Located near the Great Smoky Mountains in eastern Tennessee, the city of Knoxville is home to about 184,000 people. Although not as high-profile as Nashville as far as the music industry goes, Knoxville’s musical heritage is both rich and ongoing. Not only has Knoxville been a long-time hub for ‘roots’ music such as country, bluegrass and folk, but today it also nurtures an active modern music scene with genres that include alternative rock, punk, hip-hop and metal. Plenty of well-known musicians and bands have ties to the Knoxville area, including country legends Homer & Jethro, Chet Atkins and Kenny Chesney; Brian Bell (guitarist for rock band Weezer); Brent Smith (frontman for rock band Shinedown); deathcore band Whitechapel; and American Idol contestant Didi Benami, just to name a few.
To accommodate the ongoing needs of the Knoxville music scene, a number of quality recording studios make their home here. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Knoxville holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.
