Music Scene in
Looking to train for a career as a music producer or engineer in the Oakland music scene? The Oakland RECORDING CONNECTION is the audio engineering school alternative that gets you inside an actual Oakland recording studio as a student extern, working with real professionals as you learn your choice of mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, trance, drum and bass, techno and more), club DJ and post production audio. One of the best ways to launch a music industry career in Oakland is to learn on-the-job in a real Oakland recording studio. The RECORDING CONNECTION is the school alternative that can put you there.
You can easily spend 50 thousand dollars or more to go to a music school, but why do that when you could learn in a real recording studio for less? Learn the ins and outs of recording and producing music directly from the pros in a real-world environment, and make plenty of industry connections while developing your craft. Our on-the-job training approach is a highly affordable and efficient way to launch your audio engineering career.
Located across the bay from San Francisco, the city of Oakland is home to nearly half a million people, also boasting the busiest port in Northern California. Known to many as the home of the Oakland A’s and Oakland Raiders, this centerpiece of the East Bay is also home to one of California’s more vibrant music scenes. Not only is Oakland a known hotbed for jazz, but its busy music club scene also features such genres as rap, R&B, metal, punk and many others. Not surprisingly, Oakland has yielded more than its fair share of notable artists and bands, including Tower of Power, Green Day, MC Hammer, En Vogue, Sheila E, Keyshia Cole, The Pointer Sisters, tUnE-yArDs and many others.
Suffice it to say if you want to break into a career as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Oakland provides many opportunities to connect. The RECORDING CONNECTION’s on-the-job training approach can put you in the heart of the action.
