Your Monterey-Salinas, California
Recording School Alternative
Your MONTEREY-SALINAS, CA MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL
The RECORDING CONNECTION of MOnterey-Salinas is the music school that gets you inside an actual Monterey-Salinas area recording studio where you will learn as a student apprentice (extern) while you learn your choice of music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, trance, drum and bass, techno and more), post production audio and club DJ. One of the best ways to make a start in the recording industry in the Monterey-Salinas area is by apprenticing in a recording studio in Monterey or Salinas–and that’s where we can put you!
No need to pay upwards of 50 thousand dollars to go to music production trade school when you can spend far less money and go to AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOL in a real recording studio? Play it smart–get on the inside track, and learn directly from the pros. Our music recording school is a highly affordable and effective way to start a music industry career.
Monterey, California is located along California’s central coast, while nearby Salinas is situated about 30 minutes inland. Besides being known for sites such as Cannery Row and Fisherman’s Wharf, the Monterey-Salinas area has a rich musical heritage, as well. Monterey hosted the historic Monterey Pop Festival in the late 1960s, the site of Janis Joplin’s first major public appearance and The Who’s American debut (and a predecessor for Woodstock). Monterey also hosts the longest running Jazz Festival in America, as well as an annual Blues Festival. Notable musicians hailing from the Monterey-Salinas area include Frank Zappa, singer/songwriter Jackie Greene, and singer/actress Vanessa Hudgens.
Today, the Monterey-Salinas music scene continues to be active, with plenty of local bands and artists, as well as numerous live venues and recording studios to accommodate them. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in the Monterey-Salinas area–and the RECORDING CONNECTION can get you close to the action.
Our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach is the secret to our success. Rather than place our students in sterile academic environments, we pair them with real working industry professionals for one-on-one training and hands-on experience, working on real recording projects and making vital industry contacts along the way. The fruit of our success is in the students themselves; over 70% of them get permanent industry jobs, often getting hired even before graduating! Let the Monterey-Salinas RECORDING CONNECTION get you started today, and you could be next!
We get our students jobs.

Jobs in the Music Business
Our outstanding job placement rate is no accident. We are able to achieve this high mark because our graduates have trained inside a working recording studio. This gives our students excellent hands-on skills, real-world job experience, and the industry connections and references that just aren’t available on a school campus. 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.
