Recording Connection
Audio School


Your PHILADELPHIA, PA RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE

While there is more than one Philadelphia Recording School from which to choose, the RECORDING CONNECTION is the only one that gets you inside an actual Philadelphia recording studio as an audio student apprentice (extern), learning directly from the pros while you study audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (electronica, dub fusion, acid house, jungle and more), electronic DJ and post production audio.
 Make no mistake: the smartest way to break into the recording industry in Philadelphia is to start inside a Philadelphia recording studio as an apprentice (extern). We’re the school that gets your foot in the door.

Why would you spend upwards of 20-50 thousand dollars to go to recording school at a college or trade school, when for a fraction of that amount you can go to recording school in a real recording studio?  Play it smart–get on the inside track, and get your education in a real-world environment. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.

Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania, with a city population of 1.5 million and a greater metro population of nearly 6 million. The very active Philadelphia music scene has historically been a huge influence on music in general; this is the home of the ‘Philly sound’ (a blending of soul and funk), as well as the birthplace of American Bandstand. Philadelphia continues to be a major player today in the R&B and hip-hop genres, among other musical styles. The list of famous musicians from Philly is long, and includes such names as Frankie Avalon, Jim Croce, Joan Jett, Patti LaBelle, Boyz II Men, Hall & Oates, John Coltrane, Pink, and Paint It Black, just to name a few.

Philadelphia is also home to numerous high-quality recording studios, accommodating the ongoing musical activity of this area. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in Philadelphia.

Our distinct advantage over other recording schools is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach.  Never mind the sterile classroom setting–you won't find it in our program.  Instead, we put you where the real action is–in a real recording studio, learning one-on-one from an established industry professional during real recording projects. As you gain valuable hands-on experience, you'll make vital industry connections that almost always lead to future jobs. In fact, over 70% of our graduates go on to permanent industry employment! Why wait? Enroll in our Philadelphia Recording School today, and let us get you started on the road to your dreams of a career in the recording industry.
