Blake LaGrange graduated in 2009 from Recording Connection under mentor Steve Weatherbee of Golden Track Studio, San Diego. “If you are already doing what you love and you go through the program using the resources at Recording Connection, you can succeed,” Blake said during a visit to Los Angeles Center Studios this week. Blake comes from a place of personal experience, as he currently owns and operates two of his own studios with a focus on EDM music.

Your Norwalk, Connecticut
Recording School Alternative
The Norwalk Recording Connection
If you’re looking for an industry-competitive Norwalk Recording School, look no further. We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only recording school that hooks you up as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Norwalk recording studio, learning the arts of mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle and more), electronic DJ and post production audio from your own personal mentor. In Norwalk, CT, there’s no better way to launch a career in the music business than by apprenticing inside a Norwalk recording studio–and no better recording school than the RECORDING CONNECTION to get your foot in the door.
Why spend upwards of 20-50 thousand dollars to go to a recording school at a traditional trade school or college, when for a fraction of that amount you could go to recording school inside a real recording studio? Get on the inside track, learn from the pros, and make vital industry connections while learning in a real-world environment. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program you will find anywhere.
The city of Norwalk is located in southern Connecticut along the northern coast of Long Island Sound, serving as home to about 85,000 people. Although not a place many people readily associate with the music business in general, Norwalk is part of the greater New York City metropolitan area, and is in close range to all the incredible musical activity going on in and near the NYC area. Live music in a wide range of genres can be heard regularly in music venues throughout the area, with both local and major acts frequenting the music scene. Notable musicians with ties to Norwalk include big band legend Artie Shaw, jazz great Horace Silver, and Kill Hannah lead vocalist Mat Devine, among others.
A number of quality recording studios make their home in the Norwalk area to accommodate the ongoing needs of the music community. If your dream is to be a recording engineer, music producer, sound designer or live audio tech, but prefer the suburbs to the craziness of NYC, Norwalk provides a great alternative by offering plenty of learning opportunities while remaining close to the larger music scene.
Our industry advantage over other recording schools comes from our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. Forget the sterile classroom environment–you don't need it in our program. Instead, we'll place you where the real action happens–inside a real recording studio, where you will receive personal, one-on-one instruction by a working industry professional. As you get valuable real-world experience by working on real recording projects, you'll also make important industry connections that usually lead to future jobs when you graduate. In fact, over 70% of our graduates go on to permanent jobs in the music business, often getting hired even before they are finished with our program. Why wait? You owe it to yourself to see what our Norwalk Recording School can do for your career.
Success Stories from students near Norwalk, CT
Get the opportunity to put your own artistic input into the recording sessions.
"This week my mentor and I had a great time. We worked a little more with the artist that was recording vocals from the week before in the studio, and I also listened in on more ideas that they had for her. This of course was interesting, especially when they deemed it alright for me to add my own input at times! This was somewhat of a more advanced hands-on lab in regards to the artist herself, because she was furthering the development of her song. The following day with my mentor, we had another small studio party. The turnout was even better than the previous one my mentor had, and the crowd was fun and entertaining. The special guest was un underground female mc that I had heard of before, so it was very interesting to actually get to speak with her and watch her perform live."
