We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only Portland Recording School that hooks you up as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Portland recording studio, where you will learn directly from the pros as you study mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (video game music, acid house, dub fusion, electronica and more), post production audio and electronic DJ. Make no mistake: the smartest way to break into the recording industry in Portland is to start inside a Portland recording studio as an apprentice–and that’s where we come in.

Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.
