Looking for a great St. Louis Audio Engineering School? Look no further than the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only school that hooks you up as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual St. Louis recording studio, working directly with the pros as you learn 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. There’s no better way to get started in the recording industry in St. Louis than to apprentice (extern) inside a St. Louis recording studio–and no better school than the RECORDING CONNECTION to get your foot in the door.

Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars to go to an audio engineering trade school, when for a fraction of that amount you can go to audio engineering school in a real recording studio. Be smart, get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio recording school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program available.

Located in eastern Missouri where the Missouri River flows into the Mississippi, St. Louis is often called the ‘Gateway to the West.’ Musically speaking, St. Louis has served as a gateway as well, being a key part of the evolution of genres such as jazz, blues, country and bluegrass–and in recent days, alt-rock, punk and even rap. A number of notable bands and artists (past and present) have ties to St. Louis, including ragtime great Scott Joplin, soul singer Tina Turner, rock legend Chuck Berry, jazz greats Miles Davis and David Sanborn, singer/songwriter Cheryl Crow, and rappers Akon and Nelly, just to name a few.

Today, the music scene continues to be strong and active, with local and touring acts regularly performing in town, and with plenty of venues and recording studios to accommodate bands and artists. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, St. Louis holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.

With our many professional connections and relationships forged over the years, the RECORDING CONNECTION is in a unique position to help fulfill your dreams of a career in the recording industry. Through our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, we pair you with a working industry professional who trains you one-on-one during real recording projects, thus putting you close to the action in ways other audio engineering schools can't match. Over 70 percent of our graduates get hired in the recording industry, usually through connections they made while going through our program.  You owe it to yourself to see what our St. Louis Audio Engineering School can do for your career.


Success Stories from Students In St. Louis, MO

Apply your training from your mentor to hands-on recording sessions.
“My mentor and I had a great conversation about my reading for week 7, and I had lots of questions. My mentor is so awesome and willing to talk and answer all my questions. After my lesson, I was lucky enough once again to sit in on a recording session…I helped the rest of the night with the session and was able to see everything we just talked about in the lesson.”
-- Dustin Bannister, Bonne Terre, Missouri

Learn how to work with clients from the recording engineers themselves.
"This was week 3 with my mentor, and I learned a lot that I had previously overlooked. For instance, I was unaware that when recording guitar amplifiers, dynamic microphones are recommended vs. condensers. One of the studio engineers and I experimented with micing a guitar amp with 3 different microphones at once. After this, we recorded a bit of guitar, where the engineer had me experiment with mixing the 3 recorded signals together in order to get a nice, and blended, guitar sound. He also showed me how you could get different effects by messing with the EQ on the board in the recording control room…I am learning a lot every time I set foot in the door to my mentor's studio, and I feel comfortable with asking any questions I might have. Each week I am in the Recording Connection, I grow more and more excited."
-- Stephanie Sandman, St. Louis, Missouri
