Featured San Francisco Music Mentors on Location or Remote

The City by the Bay was the destination point for disillusioned youth looking to make their voices – and music – heard more than five decades ago. Today, many artists are still using San Francisco as a launching point for their musical careers.

The vibrant music scene makes for an ideal backdrop to learn audio engineering and music production. And there are plenty of options for those looking to start learning.

But the Golden Gate City is anything but stuffy and boring, so why would you want your music production education to be? We place you in the middle of the action from the start.

If you’re accepted into one of our audio engineering and music production programs, you’ll be getting one on one attention from mentors who have worked with the following artists:

  • Azreal
  • Hydrophonic
  • The Kooks
  • Tupac
  • Mac Dre
  • Mista Fab
  • George Clinton
  • Blink 182
  • E-40
  • One Republic


  • Electronic Arts
  • Comedy Central


The Recording Connection offers something no “name” 4-year university or audio engineering and music production trade school can. From day one, you’ll be placed in a professional recording studio and receive one-on-one mentoring from award-winning producers and engineers.

With more than 200 locations throughout 48 states, you won’t have to travel thousands of miles for this immersive experience. You learn what it takes to make it in the music business from the inside alongside industry professionals. This includes recording, mixing and mastering, hardware and software, live sound design, and even business skills.
