Your Mobile, Alabama
Recording School Alternative
Your MOBILE, ALABAMA RECORDING SCHOOL
Looking for a great recording school in Mobile? You’ve found the RECORDING CONNECTION, the most innovative recording program available. Were the only school that gets you inside an actual Mobile recording studio, where you will work as a student apprentice (extern) while you learn your choice of audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub fusion, industrial, house music, trance and more), post production audio and club DJ. The smartest way by far to break into the recording industry in Mobile is to start inside a Mobile recording studio as an apprentice–and that’s where the RECORDING CONNECTION can place you.
Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars (plus relocation expenses) to go to a recording trade school somewhere, when you can spend far less money and attend recording school in a real recording studio right in Mobile. Play it smart, get on the inside track, learn from the pros, and make vital industry contacts while you learn. Our revolutionary recording school program is the only school that actually puts you in the heart of the action.
The port city of Mobile, Alabama is located along Mobile Bay, which leads into the Gulf of Mexico. Hosting a population of about 200,000 people, Mobile is also home to a vibrant music scene, with plenty of live music venues and recording studios to accommodate the music community. Famous musicians and bands hailing from this area include legendary singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffet, jazz trombonist Urbie Green, and sibling country music sensations The Band Perry. Additionally, every year Mobile hosts a three-day blowout music festival called BayFest, which features hundreds of bands on multiple stages over a three-day period, and has featured such names as 3 Doors Down, B.B. King, Keith Urban and many others.
The abundance of music production activity in this area makes it an ideal place to learn the art of audio engineering. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Mobile holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.
The secret to the RECORDING CONNECTION's success is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. During our inexpensive, 6-month course, you'll be placed in one of Mobile's recording studios for one-on-one training with a working audio professional, working on real-world recording projects and making important industry connections that can lead to future work. In fact, over 70 percent of our graduates go on to land permanent industry jobs, many times even before they finish our program. You could be next! Enroll in the Mobile RECORDING CONNECTION today, and let us get you started on the path to your dreams.
We get our students jobs.
Of Our Graduates Get
Jobs in the Music Business

Additionally, we have a very proactive Stay Connected Job Assistance Program that serves as our graduates’ advocate in the job market for up to a year after course completion. When we say we’re connected with the music business, we mean it.Read our student success stories.
The Mobile, Alabama Recording Connection Audio School Advantage
We’ve got audio engineering schools everywhere.
The Recording Connection is a worldwide entity, with audio engineering schools all over the globe, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and the United States. We even have locations right here in Mobile, Alabama. We’re the next logical step in any sound technician’s education.
The other guys don't come close. Advantage: Recording Connection.
We keep tuition low, and keep you out of debt.
We focus on what’s important. Our tuition is low because we don’t have to spend money on things like campus beautification or parking lot maintenance. We want the money you pay to go to an audio mixing school to go toward your education. That’s not too much to ask, is it? We don’t think so. The dollars you spend on tuition go towards making your education better. They go to procuring your mentor, in-studio time, and putting you to work in an actual recording studio. We even provide all your books and supplemental coursework materials.
The other guys not only cost more, they have lots of add-on charges. Advantage: Recording Connection.
No classrooms, just a recording studio.
Where’s the best place to learn about working in a recording studio? In a recording studio, of course! That’s the simple premise on which our recording school operates. We put you to work in a real recording studio so you can learn the ropes and make connections with individuals in the industry. We want you to have as many opportunities to mix and mingle with sound mixing professionals as possible.
Advantage: Recording Connection.
Mentorship is the way to go.
In our sound mixing and audio engineering school, you’ll be learning from a pro. You’ll be learning everything there is to know about the industry and the craft of making, producing and mixing music. You’ll learn all of this from someone who has been there and done it and can guide you through the process.
With us, you are always number one. Advantage: Recording Connection.
Gold Records a-plenty.
We take lots of pride in the accomplishments of our mentors. We don’t partner with lame mentors; each and every one of our mentors is an industry veteran with two or three decades of experience under his or her belt. We’re very strict about the caliber of people that we partner with because we understand how important it is that our mentors be credible and experienced. Needless to say, we’ve got an extensive screening process. Our mentors have walls full of Gold and Platinum records.
Their teachers listen to the Gold Records our teachers produce. Advantage: Recording Connection.
We will help you find work.
The Recording Connection audio engineering school has a 12-month Job Placement Assistance program that will help you procure employment if you do not immediately find work upon graduation. It’s a pretty nifty little program, assuming you even need it. (Many of our apprentices get hired by the studios where they were trained.)
The other guys give you a cold-call lead list when you graduate. Advantage: Recording Connection.
This is much more than a school.
The Recording Connection is recommended by thousands of professional music industry veterans—everyone from recording artists to producers to engineers. The Recording Connection is a simple concept, which is why it works. We put you in a recording studio, and you learn and make connections. Boom. Done.
You can count the number of pros who recommend the other guys on one hand. Advantage: Recording Connection.
You’ll be an inside man/woman.
One of the reasons that our program has such a high employment rate is because from the first day of enrolling in our school, you’ll be working in a real recording studio. You’ll be learning your craft and meeting people from the industry.
The other guys are on the outside, looking in. Advantage: Recording Connection.
Tutoring, just in case you need it.
On the off-chance that you’re not understanding part of your curriculum, we have a completely free tutoring program. The Recording Connection wants you to succeed. We want your education experience to be the absolute best possible.
Unlimited free tutoring. Advantage: Recording Connection.
Jumpstart your tomorrow.
Connections are the single most important aspect of any creative career. You have to know people who can get you jobs. You have to know people who can give you a leg up. It’s just that simple. You need someone on the inside who can help you out. In our program, we’ve done half the work for you. We pair you with a mentor, put you to working a real recording studio, and put you in the vicinity of people in the industry. You just need to prove that you’re intelligent and driven. We put you in the right place; you fight the right time.
Real world music industry connections. Big Advantage: Recording Connection.
