Welcome to Your Philadelphia Campus

Now THIS is what hands-on is all about! Imagine it: spending hours in a top-shelf recording studio stocked to the gills with all the gear you dream about, with a real producer/engineer (your mentor) right there to show you how to use it all, one-on-one! You’ll never, ever get this kind of access with an online course or in a classroom. Afraid of making a mistake? Don’t worry—everyone does. The great news is your mentor is there to guide you every step of the way as you hone your skills and perfect your craft—and you’ll likely learn some secrets and shortcuts the textbooks won’t teach you!

“My mentor in Philadelphia is a classic individual, like a gentleman from another era. He is a friend, a mentor and an Uncle to anyone and everyone. He treats people with that care that one gives to a family member. Currently he is my mentor and he has attentively walked me through the process of Audio Engineering and Music Production. In his teachings is felt a deep love of the subject matter and his personal commitment to making sure I learn everything in a simple and clear way. He teaches like Michelangelo sculpts, He carves the statue from the marble block and does so patiently, with utmost consideration and respect. I am eager to learn more from him and also continue to get to know him as a friend.”

— Michael Larson, Philadelphia Recording Connection Student

It’s not just the gear, either: this campus has lots of history, as well. Depending on the recording studio that becomes your own Philadelphia recording school, these hallowed halls have witnessed some of the best moments in music history. Gold records by some of music’s finest artists—from early greats like John Coltrane and Dizzy Gillespie, to timeless icons like Hall & Oates and Patti LaBelle, to modern-day legends like John Legend, The Roots and Meek Mill—have been recorded right here in Philly, including in the very campus you’ll be attending.

Yes, the recording studio that will become your personal classroom and campus is a place of music history, a birthplace for Big Things. Are you ready to make your mark on music history? Are you dreaming of becoming the Next Big Thing? Then you’re in the right place, and we’re ready to help.
