Why learn audio or music production from an instructor on a campus when you can learn from a pro in his or her St. Louis studio?

On Location, Or Remote.

Not like any other school, this is Audio Education Updated, Reimagined, and Revitalized. Are You Ready to Take Your Place?

We hit different and here is why:

Most of you know the daily routine of going to school. Wake up early, hustle to a dreary classroom, fight for the attention of the teacher, take classes you really don’t care about, and do it all again four more times during the week. And when you finally graduate, they want you to do it again for four more years?

The Recording Connection doesn’t think that makes a whole lot of sense, either. That’s why we offer one-on-one learning opportunities with a ST. LOUIS MUSIC PRODUCER that bases the curriculum on what YOU want to learn. On your schedule. In a real-world ST. LOUIS AUDIO RECORDING STUDIO.

You won’t be working on worn-out gear or outdated software, you’ll get hands-on experience with the same digital audio workstations used by professionals around the world. This isn’t a lab you attend once a week – you’ll be fully immersed in the music-making business during the first week.

Here’s the kicker: no prerequisites! Whether you’ve been messing around with music for years, were part of the school marching band, or just can’t imagine a day without music, our ST. LOUIS AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION PROGRAM is for you. Bring drive, determination, and an unwavering belief in yourself and we’ll provide the foundation.

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!

10 Miles, 10 Blocks, Or 10 Seconds from Your Future as a Music Industry Professional

Beer, Bluegrass, and the Blues. St. Louis is iconic for many things, not the least of which is its historic music roots. So finding a ST. LOUIS AUDIO ENGINEER SCHOOL in the birthplace of jazz should be easy enough. But how many of them will teach you in your home? Although Covid-19 forced many educational institutions to shut down, the Recording Connection in St. Louis never missed a beat. For the past two decades, we’ve been perfecting our work-from-home curriculum. If you have a fast enough computer and access to reliable internet, you’ll receive a digital audio workstation and virtual one-on-one time with our mentors. The convenience of learning remotely is just one more way we put our students first. When in-studio learning is available, our mentors will work around your schedule. After all, ST. LOUIS MUSIC PRODUCTION isn’t a 9-to-5 job. Our mentors are willing to work around your schedule, allowing you to keep your day job and deal with other day-to-day obligations.

Does A Career In The Music Industry Sound Too Good To Be True?

Work with the Stars and Amplify

With Recording Connection, you’ll establish a baseline of learning and gain experience while working side by side with your mentor. How to move around the studio, how to set up a studio, and how to get the most out of your clients. If you have the initiative to learn, if you make yourself NEEDED, people will notice. Many of our students go on to work with the very mentors they learned under. Others are hired by artists to travel on the road with. A few even go on to open their own studios and bring in work from acts they worked with during the program. But they made it happen for themselves - nothing will be given to you. Learn about the music business from the inside. Build your brand, stock your portfolio, and network with the very people who may need your services in the very near future. We feel this is the most important aspect of the St. Louis Recording Connection. Working and learning from the people who’ve already “made it” gives you a leg up on the competition. And we do it all in nine months and at a fraction of the cost of a traditional college program. What do you have after spending time at a four-year university, besides a piece of paper and six figures of debt? Isn’t it time you chose the education for the life you want to lead?

Here's what Former St. Louis Students have to Say About Recording Connection

My experience with Recording Connections has been fantastic so far. The lessons are educational and genuinely helpful, and the mentoring I've received from Nico has been great. He's super knowledgeable, and I look forward to every Friday when we work through Pro Tools. Thanks to Recording Connections, and thanks to Nico, I'm really motivated to pursue a career in music.

Brayton Holloway in Chesterfield, Missouri

I did the Beginner Audio Engineer program and I loved it! My student advisor Nico was awesome and very enthused to help. I was placed to intern at Phat Buddha in downtown STL and was the best learning experienced I could have gotten. It’s affordable too.
