Why the Seattle, WA Recording Connection Is Better
While there is more than one Seattle Recording School from which to choose, the RECORDING CONNECTION is the only one that gets you inside an actual Seattle recording studio, working as an audio student extern while you learn music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (video game music, acid house, dub fusion, electronica and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. Make no mistake: the smartest way to break into the recording industry in Seattle is to start inside a Seattle recording studio as an extern. We’re the school that helps get your foot in the door.
You could easily spend 20-50 thousand dollars to go to recording school at a college or trade school, or you could spend a fraction of that amount and go to recording school in a real recording studio. The choice is clear! Be smart, get on the inside track, and learn from the pros in a real-world environment. Our recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program available today.
