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


Our audio engineering classes hit different and here is why:

The Recording Connection AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS IN LAS VEGAS are a perfect fit for the Neon Capital of the World. Neither of us really feel like following the crowd. Just like Las Vegas sought to create an oasis in the middle of a desert, we wanted to give students a different way to learn sound engineering, recording engineering, and how to become artists, producers, and audio engineers.

How do we do that? Instead of a classroom, we put our students in a real-world recording environment. Instead of a teacher, we put our students next to producers and engineers that are working in the industry today. Instead of having double-digit classmates, we put our students in one-on-one situations with their mentor to maximize the time together.

We feel this is the best way to learn what aspiring recording professionals need in today’s marketplace. Instead of signing up for pre-requisite courses, our mentors base the curriculum around what YOU want to learn and what you need to learn. And we do it in a quarter of the time: Our LAS VEGAS AUDIO PROGRAMS last between six and nine months.

How are we different than other music programs and music colleges?

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!
