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

On Location, Or Remote.

The Lake Charles Recording Connection

If you’re looking for an alternative to Lake Charles music school where you can learn recording and audio engineering, you’ve just found the most innovative option available—RECORDING CONNECTION, a program area of Recording Radio Film Connection & CASA Schools, a post-secondary institution that takes a distinctive approach to getting individuals training one-on-one inside of the same environments and industries in which they aspire to work.

Recording Connection is the music school alternative that gets you inside an actual Lake Charles recording studio, working as an audio student extern as you learn your choice of mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle and more), post production audio and electronic DJ. Hands down, the smartest way in Lake Charles to break into the recording industry is by externing in a Lake Charles recording studio–and that’s where we come in.

Why throw away upwards of 50 thousand dollars to go to a music engineering trade school somewhere, when for far less money you can learn music production in a real recording studio? Play it smart, and learn directly from the pros in a real-world environment. Our music recording school alternative is the smart, cost efficient program that gets you training inside the industry from day one.

Lake Charles, Louisiana lies deep in “Cajun country” in southwest Louisiana, near the lake by the same name. The city bears the nickname “Festival Capital of Louisiana” due to over 70 festivals that take place there each year. With tourism playing a major role in its economy, Lake Charles is also home to a burgeoning nightlife and music scene, with venues large and small hosting local and touring acts. Of particular note is the L’Auberge du Lac Casino and Resort, which regularly brings in major acts ranging from Gretchen Wilson to The Beach Boys. Lake Charles is rich in musical history, being home to the legendary Goldband Records label and recording studios, where Dolly Parton made her first recording as a teenager.

Besides Goldband, numerous other studios make their home in Lake Charles today, accommodating the ongoing needs of the music community. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Lake Charles holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn–and with the help of the RECORDING CONNECTION, one of these recording studios can become your classroom. We put you close to the action in ways ordinary music schools can’t.

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!
