Located on the Atlantic coast of the island of Newfoundland, the city of St. John’s (not to be confused with St. John, New Brunswick) is hailed as the oldest English-founded city in North America. Home to a metro population of nearly 200,000 people, St. John’s is a hub for tourism, shopping and culture, including a vibrant nightlife and music scene. Almost every night of the week, live music can be heard in the pubs and venues of St. John’s, mainly centered around George Street, in genres ranging from rock/blues to Irish and country. Additionally, larger annual festivals like the George Street Festival and Canada’s BIG Birthday Bash draw plenty of larger big-name acts, as well as thousands of people.

Keeping step with the ongoing musical activity of St. John’s, a number of recording studios make their home in the area. If you’re dreaming of becoming a recording engineer, music producer or recording artist, plenty of real-world learning opportunities await you here, and with the help of RECORDING CONNECTION, one of these recording studios can become your personal classroom.

Our many industry relationships forged over nearly 30 years put us in unique position of helping you fulfill your dreams of a career in the music business.

No other music school in the world can offer you this kind of opportunity. Why wait! Enroll in our St. John’s Music School today, and find out what we can do for your career.

How are we different than other professional audio engineering schools?

We took that old stale classroom concept, rebuilt and upgraded it by putting your classroom in a professional recording studio.Then we emptied out all the other students and left only YOU and YOUR TEACHER (yay for one-on-one learning!) who happens to be a pro music producer (with killer credits) to train you privately (at your pace, full time, part time, nights or weekends available).

Your hands-on learn-by-doing experience starts here!
