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

On Location, Or Remote.

Not like any other school, this is Audio Education Updated, Reimagined, and Revitalized. Are You Ready to Take Your Place?

We hit different and here is why:

Louisville is also home to a vibrant and active music scene, with a wide diversity of genres and a long list of live music venues. To accommodate the ongoing needs of this busy music community, several quality recording studios make their home in Louisville. And the Recording Connection will give you access as part of our audio engineering and music production programs.

We feel our programs offer a unique perspective for those pursuing a career behind the glass. There are certainly many LOUISVILLE AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION educational opportunities, but how many are able to offer this kind of access and flexibility:

One on one time with your mentor, an experienced PRO MUSIC PRODUCER
Almost daily access to a real-world recording studio
The freedom to learn what you want to learn
Setting your own schedule

We understand what you might be thinking: high education means early morning classes, pre-requisites, and more time in the classroom than an actual studio. With Recording Connection, the classroom IS the recording studio, you set your schedule, and you help set the curriculum.

Along with your mentor and Academic Facilitator, you’ll design the program to fit your needs. We understand that you have a life outside of the studio – family commitments, jobs, and so on. But we don’t feel that should limit your access to a world-class education.

Many aspects of the music industry are far from traditional – so why limit yourself to traditional education? Recording Connection was formed to give students an immersive, streamlined, and focused foundation on how the music of today is created. Using the latest gear along with time-tested techniques, you’ll get in on the action on day one.

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!

Close to Home or In Your Home
10 Miles, 10 Blocks, Or 10 Seconds from Your Future as a Music Industry Professional

With multiple locations in Louisville, it doesn’t matter if you’re in Germantown, Butchertown, or Downtown; Highview, Glenview, or Hillview; Portland, Prospect, or PRP. You have easy access to an educational opportunity that gives you an insider’s look at audio engineering and music production. However, we also know that no matter your proximity to one of our mentors, setting a schedule to get to the recording studio may not be that easy. Let’s face facts: 2020 proved that a “new normal” has forced many institutions to rethink the way they offer their services. But not Recording Connection. We’ve been perfecting our remote learning options for learning for decades. We’ve always worked towards providing more access for students that want to learn audio engineering and music production but may not have the traditional means to do so. It’s a two-way street, too. Really interested in learning from one of our mentors in Los Angeles, New York, and almost anywhere in between? With our remote learning option, you can. All you need is a strong enough computer and reliable internet. So if you can't get to the studio, we can bring the studio to you.

Does A Career In The Music Industry Sound Too Good To Be True?
It isn't. Become a Music Legend. You are too good not to be true to your dreams. Get Started Now.

Amplified Music Programs

Work with the Stars and Amplify

There are some Recording Connection students that come to us so they can improve their own sound and make their own music. But for those that want to stay on the other side of the glass, we offer something no traditional education facility can: opportunity. Remember, you’re surrounded by people who are already making money in the business you’re looking to be a part of. They’re passing their experiences on to you, answering your questions, and helping you build a portfolio. At some point, they may be looking for someone to hire, or at least will know when a studio is looking. These are the people that you could potentially be working with when the program is over. Your mentor could hire you at their studio and every act that comes through the door could be a future client. Every day is a new day to impress, to take advantage of the opportunities before you. Consider these sessions your resume. How you perform today could solidify a job tomorrow. Are you responsible, professional, and personable? Or do you arrive late, spend time on your phone, and act aloof? Almost everybody you come into contact with is already part of the music industry. Remember, this isn’t playtime. It’s real life. The question is, do you have what it takes to make it your life?
