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

On Location, Or Remote.

Look no further than RECORDING CONNECTION, the only school that gets you inside an actual Thunder Bay recording studio, working as an audio student extern as you learn the arts of audio engineeringmusic producing, mixing, live audio and more. In Thunder Bay, Ontario, the smartest way to break into a career in audio is by externing in a Thunder Bay recording studio–and we’re the school that puts you there.

Why would you spend 10-50 thousand dollars on an audio engineering program at a trade school or college, when you could get the same quality audio education in a real recording studio for a fraction of that amount? The choice is clear! Get on the inside track, and learn directly from the pros in a real-world environment. Our audio recording school is the smartest, most cost efficient program you’ll find anywhere.

Situated on the northern shores of Lake Superior in northwest Ontario, the city of Thunder Bay anchors a metro population of around 120,000 people. As such, it serves as a business and cultural hub for the region, which includes an active music scene with a diversity of genres represented. While larger acts and cultural events can regularly be seen playing at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium, smaller acts can be found almost any night of the week in some of the more popular smaller venues such as Kilroy’s and Black Pirates Pub. Thunder Bay has produced several noteworthy and successful musicians over the years, including folk singer Ian Tamblyn, early rock idol Bobby Curtola, Golden Dogs bandmates Dave Azzolini and Jessica Grassia, and perhaps most notably, songwriter/bandleader Paul Shaffer, longtime sidekick for TV show host David Letterman.

A number of recording studios make their home in Thunder Bay to accommodate the ongoing needs of the music community. Whether your dream is to become an audio engineer, music producer or live audio tech, Thunder Bay offers plenty of real-world learning opportunities–and RECORDING CONNECTION can put you in the heart of the action where other audio engineering schools can’t.

Our advantage over other schools is our mentor-extern approach. While the other schools place their students in stale classrooms, we put you into a real recording studio, where a seasoned audio professional trains you one-on-one using our curriculum. As you gain valuable hands-on experience working on real recording projects, you’ll also make connections with other industry pros, giving you the inside track on job opportunities long before the students in the classrooms even know about them. No other audio school on the planet can offer you this kind of opportunity. You owe it to yourself to see what our Thunder Bay Audio Engineering School 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!
