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

On Location, Or Remote.

Serving as Nebraska’s state capital, the city of Lincoln is on an upswing. The second most populous city in the state with more than 250,000, the downtown area is growing and wages are rising, making the city attractive to younger people.

Lincoln has been listed on many “top” lists, including Forbes Best Places for Business and Careers (2013), Nerdwallet’s Best Cities for Job Seekers in 2015, and SmartAssets’s Cities with the Best Work-Life Balance in 2019. As part of the “Silicon Prairie,” Lincoln is positioning itself as an alluring place to live.

The city already skews younger thanks to the University of Nebraska. Buoyed by younger urban professionals and college students, Lincoln nurtures a vibrant music scene. Although a variety of genres are represented in Lincoln, progressive rock and punk bands are a dominant factor in the area.

Thanks in large part to the Cornhuskers, Lincoln features at 15,500 seat arena that draws in a wide variety of touring acts. Home to the men’s and women’s basketball teams during the season, the Pinnacle Bank Area has welcomed Kendrick LeMar, Justin Bieber, and Lorde as well as Fleetwood Mac, Journey, and Styx.

There’s also a place for smaller local and regional acts, too. Popular venues such as the Zoo Bar, Bourbon Theatre, and Duffy’s Tavern bring blues, EDM, and rock to the masses. Notable musicians and bands with ties to Lincoln include pop/rock band Zager and Evans, rock artist Matthew Sweet, and Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine, to name a few.

Lincoln is also home to a number of recording studios which accommodate the ongoing needs of the music community. Whether your interest is in music production, audio engineering or mixing, you’ll find plenty of learning opportunities in Lincoln.

That’s what Recording Connection brings to those who want to make music their career. We offer one-on-one time with industry professionals in real-world studios. With our programs, you’ll learn about making music from both sides of the glass, how to work with artists, and the tools to bring it all together.

But our best students are the ones who put in the work. Part of making a career in this industry is showing up on time, doing what you say you’ll do, and an overwhelming desire to learn. Do you think you have what it takes? Apply today.

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!
