Why learn audio or music production from an instructor on a campus when you can learn from a pro in his or her Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne studio?

On Location, Or Remote.

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:

We’re all familiar with the “traditional” school setting. Making sure you have all of the prerequisites before taking the classes you really want to take. Limited schedules for those classes you want. Trying to get attention from your teacher, but getting lost in the sea of other students.

And nothing says tradition like going into six-figures of debt to attend a four-year university. And, maybe for some professions, the same old same old is a necessity. But the business of making music is not like those traditional professions. So Recording Connection decided to change things up.

The Recording Connection AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION SCHOOL IN Orlando places you in a real-world recording studio and gives you one-on-one time with a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER. You’ll get to set your schedule, you’ll get to set your syllabus, and you’ll get hands-on experience with the latest gear in the industry.

That four-year commitment and up to $150,000 of debt? A thing of the past. You won’t need to carry around eight books or worry about early morning math classes. Yes, there’s required reading, tests, and exams you’ll be required to take, and you can’t fudge your way through what you’re learning. But our exams are based on real world practices and knowhow. Our lessons help you build a brand. Our Career Services Department will help you craft your professional portfolio, and through study of our programs you get a taste of the real world and the real craft of working in music for a living.

That’s why we feel working in an actual ORLANDO RECORDING STUDIO now can be worth so much more than sitting in a four-year university classroom. In the music industry, who you know is just as important as what you know. Let us make that first connection with an ORLANDO MUSIC PRODUCER.

How are we different than other professional audio engineering 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 as a Music Industry Professional

We started this “new” way of learning audio engineering and music production three decades ago. In that time, we’ve grown to more than 250 locations throughout the US and Canada. We know there are many ORLANDO AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS, but why not choose the one that puts you in the middle of the action? Even if you never leave your house. Although the ORLANDO RECORDING CONNECTION serves neighborhoods in the Orlando, Daytona Beach, and Melbourne areas, we also offer access to those individuals who may not be able to come to the studio as often as they like. In fact, we’ve been offering remote learning for decades, working with those that may be hundreds of miles away from any of our locations. As the coronavirus showed us, life happens. Whether it’s a worldwide pandemic, family commitments, or whatever else, we offer the quality education remotely as well as in the studio. While many institutions scrambled to meet guidelines, our infrastructure had been in place for years.

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

We’ve already mentioned the many advantages Recording Connection programs have over those traditional universities - but we saved the best for last. While you work with other students in a classroom or lab at university, you’ll be working with locals bands, regional names, and even national acts. Every time a new client comes into the studio, it’s an opportunity for you to make a connection with someone in the industry. At the start, you may be setting up mics, running cables, or even just getting someone a bottle of water. Eventually, you’ll start assisting your mentor or even run sessions on your own. But no matter what you do, you’ll be making an impression on a potential client or employer. Nobody likes emptying the trash - but it’s something that has to be done to keep the studio running smoothly. Are you going to whine about it or are you going to take care of it? If you act responsibly, do what you say you’re going to do, and really listen to what your mentors are telling you, you’ll be taking advantage of these opportunities. Our most successful students are often hired by the very studios they learned in. They took advantage of the opportunity Recording Connection provided. A university may have name recognition, but after four years, all they offer is a degree. With us, you could already have three years of experience in audio production or as a live sound engineer, music producer, beat maker, and more. What makes more sense?
