Your MUSCLE SHOALS, ALABAMA RECORDING SCHOOL
There might not be a multitude of Muscle Shoals Audio Engineering Schools, but you really only need one: THE RECORDING CONNECTION. Were the only audio engineering school that hooks you up in an actual Muscle Shoals recording studio, where you will work as a studio apprentice (extern) while you learn your choice of music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (video game music, acid house, dub fusion, electronica and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. Make no mistake, the smartest way to break into the recording industry in Muscle Shoals is to start inside a Muscle Shoals recording studio as an apprentice–and that’s where the RECORDING CONNECTION comes in.
You could easily spend 50 thousand dollars or more to go to an audio engineering trade school, or you could go to school in a real recording studio for a fraction of that amount. The choice is clear! Learn directly from the pros, get on the inside track, and get connected while getting your education. Our audio recording school is the smartest, most cost efficient program you can find anywhere.
