Music Scene in
With the largest population density of Northern New England, the Portland metro area holds almost a third of Maine’s residents. Situated on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, the marine industry is a large part of the economy. Through fishing and commercial shipping, the Port of Portland is the largest seaport in New England based on tonnage.
But the port area also receives a positive economic impact from the service and tourism industries. With 19th century architecture and 21st-century nightlife, the Old Port District is a hotbed of activity throughout the year. Apart from the port, Thompson’s Point has seen a resurgence of sorts, thanks to a growing craft brew scene, concert facility, and other areas of interest.
Along with parks, museums, art galleries, historical sites, and a smattering of minor league sports, there’s something for singles, couples, and families. Which means there are a wide variety of venues to catch many genres of music. Acoustic and metal, local and touring acts, and everything in between shows up on Portland, ME, stages.
And you could become a part of it all. Offering hands-on learning in a working studio, the Recording Connection in Portland offers a departure from the traditional classroom settings of 4-year colleges and colleges. Instead of jockeying for time with your instructor, we offer one-on-one time with a mentor.
These industry professionals will give you the insider’s view of the music industry, starting from day one. Our audio engineering and music production programs are designed to give our externs a real-world view of how music is made.
