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:
For many traditional careers, a four-year degree is an absolute necessity. Some require six or even eight years of college or university work. For specialties, you may even be required to attend certain schools hundreds or thousands of miles away. Each step costing that much more than the one that came before it.
Fortunately, the music industry isn’t “traditional.” Recording Connection believes the best way to make your way in a creative business is to get your hands dirty from day one. For our Audio Engineering and Music Production Program (and other programs), we’ll put you in a MILWAUKEE RECORDING STUDIO alongside a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER from the start.
You’ll still have required reading (e-book), quizzes, and tests – this is an educational institution after all – you’ll be working on the gear the pros use. You could help mic up sessions with clients, assist the engineer or producer, and learn the hows and whys of the craft. If you prove your worth, you’ll even get the opportunity to take over a session of your own.
And while you’re gaining experience on the latest digital audio workstations, handling different personalities, and working with the latest gear, those in a traditional university setting will be elbowing out other students for lab time and nowhere near a commercial recording studio. With the MILWAUKEE RECORDING CONNECTION you learn where the actual work gets done.
The key to our programs? Instead of taking classes they want you to take when they want you to take them, we ask you, “Where do you want to go?” Along with an Academic Facilitator, you’ll have a say in your schedule and what you want to learn. If you already know how to install and use certain plug-ins, we’re not going to waste any time teaching you all over again.
But if you need help, if you have questions, or if you’re feeling a little lost – just ask! That’s why we offer one-on-one time with a mentor: So you can get your questions answered instead of struggling to get attention in a crowded classroom. This is your time, you don’t have to share with anyone. Our knowledgeable Academic Facilitators act as your remote second mentors. They can talk you through the big picture concepts, help you install software, even help you with your latest track.
While Recording Connection offers a lot when it comes to learning and building opportunities, consider it your job to take advantage of all of it. Remember, these are professionals you’ll be working with. Our mentors are on the clock – if you’re wasting their time, you’re costing them money. You’re here to work, not play on your phone. Bring drive, determination, and an unwavering belief in yourself and we’ll provide the foundation.
