Why learn audio or music production from an instructor on a campus when you can learn from a pro in his or her Toronto 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:

With a population of more than 6 million people, one of the busiest airports in the world, once the third largest film and television capital in the world, Recording Connection is on the ground of this international hub of entertainment.

Although there are many TORONTO AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS to choose from, we feel our programs offer something just a little bit different. Instead of putting you in a classroom, we immerse you in a real-world recording studio environment. Instead of sharing the attention of a teacher, you’ll work one-on-one with a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER.

Instead of a pre-determined syllabus that’s been rehashed year after year, our mentors craft a curriculum based on what you need as well as what the music industry needs right now, not a decade ago. No prerequisites, no references, no musical background? No worries. All you really need to take part in our 6-9 month programs is a desire to learn, the determination to put in the work, and the drive to see it all the way to the end.

Certainly, there are aspects of the TORONTO AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION Program that might make you think of traditional schools. This includes the eBook full of valuable instruction and information, tests, and work you do on your own time. Remember – this isn’t playtime.

Our mentors are industry professionals working in PROFESSIONAL TORONTO RECORDING STUDIOS. You’ll learn how to work with the artists, sit in on sessions, and maybe even take control of your own session. But this won’t happen if you play on your phone the whole time.

You have to want it. We’ll give you a solid base, but what you build on top of that is up to you. When the program is over, and another producer asks your mentor for some new blood, are they going to say your name? When your mentor thinks of you, what will they remember?

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!

Close to Home or In Your Home
10 Miles, 10 Blocks, Or 10 Seconds from Your Future as a Music Industry Professional

As we said before, Toronto has a lot to offer its citizens, including a variety of places to learn audio engineering and music production. But when everyday norms are disrupted by a worldwide pandemic, how many will be able to stay open? How many will be able to continue to give you an education? That hasn’t been an issue for Recording Connection. Over the past three decades, we’ve been building our mentor base to allow students from all over Canada and the U.S. to learn the music business from the inside of the industry. But we also designed our programs to be taken from inside your home. For years, we’ve been offering externs the choice of remote learning. If you have a fast enough computer and internet access, you can work with any of our mentors. Whether it’s a Toronto music producer you really admire, a Memphis audio engineer with bluesy roots, or a hard-rocking audio engineer in L.A., you can train with any of them, all from the safety and comfort of your home.

Does A Career In The Music Industry Sound Too Good To Be True?
It isn't. Become a Music Legend. You are too good not to be true to your dreams. Get Started Now.

Work with the Stars and Amplify

The objective of the TORONTO RECORDING CONNECTION is to give you a foundation on which to build a career. We can teach you the digital audio workstation, we can show you how to set up the mics, we can help you set up a studio for a recording session. But perhaps the most important thing we can give you is an introduction to other music makers. Networking. Connections. Getting your name out there. The artists that use our studios also have eyes and ears. They can tell when you know what you’re doing and when you don’t. If they need an engineer to travel with the band for six months and they think of you, what will they remember? Everything you do, from getting someone a bottle of water to mixing and mastering a track like a pro, will be remembered. Just like not showing up on time or leaving behind a trail of broken promises. What do you think leaves a better impression? It’s a simple equation. You can travel thousands of miles to train in another country, attend a four-year school, and be shown the door with a pretty piece of paper. Or, you can work your butt off, build a portfolio, improve your brand, and maybe even a job waiting for you after nine months. What makes more sense?

Here's what Former Toronto Students have to Say About Recording Connection

I got to personally work with my mentor named Alex Solis, during my course Alex kept in contact and was always able to keep me up to date. What I really enjoyed was the zoom call with my mentor and it was very hands on, Alex not only answered my questions but showed me visually what I was confused about. His support kept me confident in what I was working in which got me to improve my skills and get better. I enjoyed this course and look forward to taking another course in the future.

RRFC has provided me with what I had hoped it would and more. From my connection with Sam; my mentor through the program, who genuinely cared about my progress and was there to efficiently help me develop the skills I wished to acquire. To my connection with Jony; the owner of a studio in a city near me, who gave me valuable real life experience meeting clients, completing tasks, and even becoming involved in the recording & editing of podcasts for the first time. (Covid did put a halt to in person sessions at the studio, but we would move over to zoom and begin to have successful discussions over there) The online e-booklet style course I was supplied with was of high quality and contained the information that I was hoping to learn & attain. While I'm still young and have quite the future to go, my time with RRFC brought great value and has helped me gain a much clearer mind as to where I could be in the industry and how I can go about it. I am very much looking forward to one day going for coffee with Sam, my mentor out in LA (i'm in Canada), and thanking him in person

You’ve got to put in your effort. You have to show the studio you’re actually going to show up, you’re going to be there, you’re going to work hard, and you know your stuff.
