Why learn audio or music production from an instructor on a campus when you can learn from a pro in his or her Oklahoma City studio?


Not like any other school, this is Audio Education Updated, Reimagined, and Revitalized. Are You Ready to Take Your Place?

We hit different and here is why: 

In the past, making a name for yourself in the audio engineering or music producing professions meant you needed to go to one of a handful “name” four-year universities and get a degree. From there, you’d hope to get your foot in the door of a recording studio and work doing the grunt work until the boss or head engineer decided to give you a shot.

As it often does, technology changed all of that. As digital audio workstations became more powerful, and home computers became less expensive, a new breed of audio engineers began to grow. Unfortunately, the way those “traditional” schools operated did not change.

That’s when Recording Connection stepped up to the plate. Instead of classrooms, we put our students inside real-world OKLAHOMA CITY RECORDING STUDIOS. Instead of a tenured professor, we pair students with PRO MUSIC PRODUCERS who probably even work with the very bands you listen to. Instead of sharing space with several other students, we offer a one-on-one environment.

And unlike other OKLAHOMA CITY AUDIO ENGINEERING & MUSIC PRODUCTION SCHOOLS, we continue to change as technology and processes dictate. Our curriculum is created with the individual in mind. We realize your needs and curiosities are not exactly the same as the student who came before you – so why should you be forced to learn the exact way they did?

With this type of teaching in place, there’s no need to draw the process out with a bunch of prerequisite classes universities seem to feel you need. Our programs last six to nine months and focus on what the industry is looking for today, not rehashing what was new 20 years ago.

The music industry isn’t like those other traditional jobs. And the Recording Connection isn’t like those other traditional four-year universities. In a creative industry, technology changes, gear changes, processes change. Why not go with the school that changed how audio engineering and music production was taught?

How are we different than other music schools?

We took that old stale classroom concept, rebuilt and upgraded it by putting your classroom in a professional recording studio. Then we emptied out all the other students and left only YOU and YOUR TEACHER (yay for one-on-one learning!) who happens to be a pro music producer (with killer credits) to train you privately (at your pace, full time, part time, nights or weekends available).

Your hands-on learn-by-doing experience starts here!

10 Miles, 10 Blocks, Or 10 Seconds from Your Future in the Music Recording Industry

What sets the Recording Connection apart from other AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION SCHOOLS IN OKLAHOMA CITY or four-year universities is the ability to work in-house or in your house. As Covid-19 entered the lexicon of 2020, it was clear many institutions were ill-prepared to provide a safe way to teach their students.

Recording Connection didn’t miss a beat. Decades ago, we learned that not every student has the ability to travel hundreds of miles (or even across town) to learn from audio engineers or music producers in person. So we created and perfected remote-learning possibilities to give more access to students across the U.S.

And when recording studios are able to fully open back up, the OKLAHOMA CITY RECORDING CONNECTION will be waiting with open arms. Until then, we’ll send you a digital audio workstation of your choice, an e-Book with study plans and resources, and virtual access to your mentors. Because music don’t stop, not even for a worldwide pandemic.

Does A Career In The Music Industry Sound Too Good To Be True?

Iconic Music and Audio Engineering Programs

Work with the Stars and Amplify

It should come as no surprise that who you know is just as important as what you know when it comes to the music industry. We’re not saying it’s good or bad - it’s just the way it is. That’s what makes the Oklahoma City Recording Connection so valuable if you’re looking to break into the business.

Consider this: your mentor is a working professional in a real-world recording studio. To keep the lights on, they need to bring in clients that need help establishing their sound or bring clarity to a track. And while they work, you’ll be learning how to run the boards, work with the artists, and do the business end and administrative work required of any studio.

Soon, you could be assisting your mentor or even taking charge of your own sessions. Work hard and be diligent and you can develop relationships with the clients, their managers, and other audio engineers and music producers. We’ll even give you actionable instruction on how to start creating a brand, build a portfolio, and make even more of the connections that you’ll need when you strike out on your own.

Consider these sessions your resume. How you perform today could solidify a job tomorrow. Are you responsible, professional, and personable? Or do you arrive late, spend time on your phone, and act aloof? Remember, this isn’t playtime. It’s real life. The question is, do you have what it takes to make it your life?
