Blake LaGrange graduated in 2009 from Recording Connection under mentor Steve Weatherbee of Golden Track Studio, San Diego. “If you are already doing what you love and you go through the program using the resources at Recording Connection, you can succeed,” Blake said during a visit to Los Angeles Center Studios this week. Blake comes from a place of personal experience, as he currently owns and operates two of his own studios with a focus on EDM music.

Your Santa Fe Springs, California
Recording School Alternative
If you are looking for a great way to train as a music producer or audio engineer in Santa Fe Springs, CA, you’ve come to the right place! The RECORDING CONNECTION is the audio engineering school that gets you in the door of a real Santa Fe Springs recording studio, where you will work as a student apprentice (extern) with real audio professionals as you learn your choice of mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, trance, drum and bass, techno and more), club DJ and post production audio. One of the best ways to get into the music industry in Santa Fe Springs is to study on-the-job in a real Santa Fe Springs recording studio. The RECORDING CONNECTION is the school that can put you there.
You could spend upwards of 50 thousand dollars to sit in a classroom and attend a music school, or you could spend far less and learn from real professionals in a real recording studio. The choice should be clear! Get on the inside track by learning on-the-job, making important industry connections while you learn. Our on-the-job training approach is not only one of the most affordable ways to launch your audio engineering career—it’s also one of the most effective.
The Santa Fe Springs area was first settled around the discovery of one of the riches oil fields in the world. Today, located on the eastern edge of Los Angeles County, the city of Santa Fe Springs is one of the Gateway Cities to the sprawling Los Angeles metropolitan area. While home to only around 17,000 people, this community also provides easy access to one of the most active music scenes in the world, with hundreds of music venues, thousands of bands and artists performing in a wide range of genres, corporate offices for the biggest record labels, and of course some of the busiest recording studios in the world. This gives Santa Fe Springs the advantage of offering a best-of-both-worlds opportunity for aspiring music industry pros who want to be close to the L.A. music scene without having to deal with all its chaos.
If you plan to break into a career as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to connect within the Santa Fe Springs area, and the RECORDING CONNECTION’s on-the-job training approach can get you in the heart of the action, right where you need to be.
Our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach is the secret to our success. Never mind college classrooms or trade school labs: you won’t find either in our program. Instead, we’ll place you as a working apprentice inside a real recording studio, to be trained one-on-one with an actual producer/engineer who knows the business inside and out. You’ll learn to record, produce and mix by working with the actual gear and software used by the studio; you’ll get valuable work experience that will help you find work; and you’ll make important industry connections you could never make in a classroom. It’s little wonder that over 70 percent of Recording Connection graduates get hired! Enroll in our Santa Fe Springs Audio School today, and you could be next.
We get our students jobs.
Of Our Graduates Get
Jobs in the Music Business

Additionally, we have a very proactive Stay Connected Job Assistance Program that serves as our graduates’ advocate in the job market for up to a year after course completion. When we say we’re connected with the music business, we mean it.Read our student success stories.

Low tuition, no hidden charges. Advantage: Recording Connection.

Advantage: Recording Connection.

For up to a year after graduation, you'll have active help and job counseling if you need it. (Be advised, though—you may not need it. Many of our mentors hire their best apprentices, so if you do a good job in school, you "job placement" may not even be an issue!)

On the Inside Track.
Becoming an "insider" is one of the biggest hurdles to getting into this business, because it's really an insider's game. By getting you in the door of a real recording studio, we help you get over this hurdle from the very beginning. By the time the other audio students graduate and come knocking on the doors with their resumes, you'll already have the inside track to job openings. You'll already be known.
Get on the inside track. Advantage: Recording Connection.
The Recording Connection offers free tutoring to anyone in the program who needs it.
Unlimited free tutoring. Advantage: Recording Connection.
Anyone who knows this industry knows connections are a key to success. You HAVE to know people to get jobs, and they have to know you! Simply put, you won't make those connections in a classroom, but you CAN make them working in the studio. This is perhaps the greatest advantage that on-the-job training offers you.
Real world music industry connections. Advantage: Recording Connection.
