The smartest way to get started in audio recording and engineering in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area is to apprentice (extern) inside a recording school in Tampa, St. Petersburg or Sarasota–and we’re the school that helps you get your foot in the door.

Located on Florida’s Gulf Coast around Tampa Bay, the cities of Tampa and St. Petersburg anchor a greater metro area of over 2.7 million people, encompassing Clearwater, Sarasota and numerous other towns. Although not as high-profile in the music biz as L.A. or Nashville, this area sees a lot of music activity, due in part to the tourist industry and the presence of several area colleges. Tampa, St. Pete and nearby Sarasota all have solid local music scenes; Tampa itself has become known as a hotspot for various forms of metal music, much of which has centers around Morrissound Studios, a high-quality recording facility that has recorded projects by Seven Mary Three, Morbid Angel and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, among others.
Morrissound, of course, isn’t the only recording studio in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area; there are a number of other quality studios accommodating the needs of the broader music community here. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, you’ll find plenty of learning opportunities here in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, and the RECORDING CONNECTION can get you close to the action in ways other recording schools can’t match.
