Music Scene in
Congratulations–you’ve just found the most innovative Peterborough Music School available. We’re RECORDING CONNECTION, the only school that gets you into an actual Peterborough recording studio, working as an audio student extern while you learn the arts of music recording, music producing, music producing, mixing, live audio and more. In Peterborough, Ontario, the best way to get your start in the music business is to extern inside a Peterborough recording studio. That’s where we come in.
Why spend 10-50 thousand dollars to attend music recording school at a trade school or college, when for a fraction of that amount you could go to music school inside a real recording studio? Get on the inside track, learn directly from the pros, and get your education in a real-world environment. No one does it more effectively, or more cost-efficiently than our music recording school alternative.
Situated about 125 km northeast of Toronto, the city of Peterborough itself is home to about 75,000 people, yet anchors a greater metro area of over 125,000. Although not a town the average person thinks of with regard to the music business, Peterborough is actually a hub for a thriving music scene, with local and touring bands and artists from a wide range of genres playing regularly in venues large and small throughout the area. Crary Park is a popular downtown venue for lots of touring performers, while any of a large number of local pubs also host live music regularly. Peterborough also hosts several annual music festivals, including the Peterborough Folk Festival and the Little Lake MusicFest. Notable bands and artists with connections to Peterborough include alt-rock bands Thousand Foot Krutch, Hawk Nelson and I Mother Earth; singer/songwriter Serena Ryder; indie-rock vocalist Emily Hanes; and metal singer Sebastian Bach, former frontman of Skid Row.
A number of recording studios make their home in Peterborough to accommodate the ongoing needs of the music scene. Additionally, Peterborough is a short drive from Toronto, one of Canada’s largest musical hubs. If you’re dreaming of becoming a music producer, recording engineer or recording artist, but prefer to avoid the craziness of the big city, Peterborough gives you the unique opportunity to benefit from the best of both worlds–and RECORDING CONNECTION can get you close to the action where other music schools cannot.
Our mentor-extern approach gives us a solid edge over our competition because instead of placing you in a stale classroom, we put you in a real recording studio, where the real action is. You’ll be coached through our curriculum one-on-one by a seasoned audio professional with years of experience, you’ll gain valuable hands-on training by sitting in on real recording projects, and you’ll make important industry connections along the way. Because our program puts you on the inside track, job placement is virtually built into the process–in fact, over 70 percent of our students get hired, many times even before they graduate! Why wait? Enroll in our Peterborough Music School today, and you could be next.
