Not like any other school, this is audio education updated, reimagined, and revitalized.

Learn Remote, or In Person

We hit different and here is why: 

You have found the only school that puts you directly with the music influencers and audio professionals that are winning awards and making magic in the world of production. With us, you work one-on-one with A PRO MUSIC PRODUCER in a real studio environment (or remote if you prefer). You get to learn, build your brand, and build your portfolio of work all while getting comprehensive education in audio engineering and production. Many of our students start working in the industry before they even graduate.

We are the only school whose classrooms are not on a college campus but inside the world’s most important recording studios. Not only that, but you also won’t go into debt to learn and grow as an artist, all while getting the most advanced, connected education in music and audio engineering, unmatched by any other school in Los Angeles or the world. Yeah, we mean it.

This isn’t a classroom, this is life. Your life.



How are we different than any other school?

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!

What We Offer


Work with the Stars and Amplify



While there are numerous Los Angeles AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS from which to choose, only the Los Angeles RECORDING CONNECTION lets you get your education inside an actual working Los Angeles recording studio. You will learn your choice of mixing, audio engineering, music production, and post-production. Learn how to work with live audio, how to create electronic music and its many sub-genres (video game music, acid house, dub fusion, electronica, and more), and how to perform as a club DJ.

But it’s much more than the music. So often in Los Angeles, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. With Recording Connection, you’ll learn to take advantage of the opportunities you’ll be given. How to move around the studio. How to work with an artist. How to make your own connections.

We feel learning about the music business from within the music business makes the most sense. A university may have name recognition, but after four years, all you have is a degree. In that same period of time, you could already have three years of career experience. What makes more sense?
