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

On Location, Or Remote.

The Topeka, Kansas Recording Connection

Congratulations–you’ve just found the best Topeka Recording School option available. We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only school that gets you inside an actual Topeka recording studio to work as an audio student extern as you learn your choice of audio engineering, mixing, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub fusion, industrial, house music, trance and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. In Topeka, Kansas, the smartest way to break into the recording industry is to start inside a Topeka recording studio as an extern–and that’s where the RECORDING CONNECTION comes in.

Why spend upwards of 50 thousand dollars to go to a recording trade school when you could go to recording school in a real recording studio for a fraction of that amount? Play it smart, get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio recording school is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.

Topeka is the state capital of Kansas, located in the northeast part of the state, anchoring a combined metro population of over 200,000 people. Although Topeka is not widely mentioned in music industry circles, the city is actually home to an active music scene, with genres that include jazz, country, bluegrass, hard rock and more. Notable musicians and bands hailing from this area include the legendary classic rock band Kansas, Flaming Lips drummer Kliph Scurlock, and recent Internet sensation fingerstyle guitarist Andy McKee, considered by some to be one of the top 5 acoustic players in the world.

Numerous live music venues and recording studios make their home in Topeka to accommodate the needs to the music community. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Topeka holds plenty of opportunity for you to learn.

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!

Quotes from students near Topeka, KS

Work with your mentors’ clientele.
"For my first lesson with my mentor, we went over sound and hearing and its meaning to music. I learned the three major steps in engineering, which are recording, overdubbing, and final mixing. The next day, I went into my mentors’ studio and witnessed an overdubbing session…My initial thoughts were that my mentor is very knowledgeable, as well as well respected locally. Plus, he has little tips that make learning easier. I also truly appreciate the interest the Recording Connection has shown."
