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

On Location, Or Remote.

Overland is a small community located just a few miles west of the major metropolis of St. Louis. The town is full of tree-lined neighborhoods, a few community parks, and a small industrial area. As such, the city is attractive to people who work in St. Louis but are looking for a more suburban place to live.

Which isn’t to say Overland is devoid of industry. Toy giant Build-a-Bear is headquartered here and a Dr. Pepper Snapple Group manufacturing operation also calls the city home. Still, for big city amenities, residents head over to St. Louis. Major league sports, an internationally known symphony orchestra, and enough museums, landmarks, and history to keep any tourist busy for weeks on end.

This includes music lovers. With venues great and small, Overland residents can head East to hear rock, pop, metal, hip hop, and of course blues and jazz. Small local bands, as well as large touring bands, all ply their trade in St. Louis.

But that doesn’t mean you need to study audio engineering or music production in St. Louis. With Recording Connection, you’ll get real-world experience under the watchful eye of a professional mentor. We’ll give you access to the tools of the trade and the opportunity to make connections within the industry.

At the Recording Connection in Overland, you could have the opportunity to work with acts representing the full spectrum of genres or perhaps worldwide companies in need of audio engineering or music production. Every day could bring a new surprise or a new challenge.

Our most successful externs relish those moments. This is more than a hobby – they hope to make it a career. In many cases, the work they put in with their mentors was enough to get them hired at the end of their training at the very same studios where they studied.

That isn’t a guarantee, though. But put in the work, pay attention, ask questions, and absorb every minute in the studio and you’ll put yourself in a good position to build a career you’re passionate about. Sounds like you? Apply today.

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!
