Featured New York Music Mentors on Location or Remote

Manhattan, Chelsea, the South Bronx, Brooklyn, Rockaway Beach, and even New York City Metrocards have all been immortalized in song. Now is the time to start making your mark in the music industry, too. 

There is no shortage of audio engineering and music production schools in the Big Apple – but none of them give you the kind of access the Recording Connection does.

Instead of a classroom, we put you in a real-world recording studio. Instead of four years, we offer six and nine-month programs. No prerequisites, no crazy high tuitions, and no 8 a.m. Monday morning classes.
