Music Scene in
Among the recording schools from which to choose in the Toronto area, only RECORDING CONNECTION places you in an actual Toronto recording studio as an audio student extern, learning one-on-one from a seasoned industry professional as you master the arts of audio engineering, music producing, mixing, live audio and more. The best way to break into the music business in Toronto is to start inside a Toronto recording studio as an extern. We’re the school that literally gets your foot in the door.
Don’t make the mistake of spending 10-50 thousand dollars or more on a recording school program at a college or trade school, when you could get the same quality recording school education inside a real studio for far less money. Make the smart choice for your career, get on the inside track, and learn directly from the pros in a real-world environment. Our recording school is the smartest, most cost-effective alternative you’ll find anywhere.
Canada’s largest city, Toronto, Ontario is located along the northern banks of Lake Ontario, hosting a city population of about 2.5 million and anchoring a greater metro population of about 5.5 million. Toronto by any standard is a global city, serving as a major world centre for commerce, finance and culture, including an exceptionally broad music scene. In the classical/performing arts scene alone, Toronto is home to two major orchestras, six opera companies and over fifty dance companies; in the modern music scene, Toronto has been influential in genres such as pop, rock, hip-hop, punk, goth, alternative, R&B and many others. While major touring acts regularly make stops at venues such as Air Canada Centre and Molson Amphitheatre, other popular music venues include the Horseshoe Tavern and Lee’s Palace. While live music is happening all over town, one particular hotspot for venues is Queen Street West in Toronto’s noted Entertainment District. A long list of notable bands and artists have ties to Toronto and include Sum 41, Three Days Grace, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, k-os, Dan Hill, Steppenwolf, Broken Social Scene, Billy Talent, Cowboy Junkies, Deborah Cox, and of course, legendary rock band Rush.
