Elevated Audio and Music Production Programs
Work with the Stars and Amplify
We’ll just come out and say it: When it comes to music, or any creative industry, who you know is just as important as what you know. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to you, but it begs the question: if you’re just starting out, how do you even begin to get your name out there?
That’s probably the most invaluable part of the Recording Connection Audio Engineering and Music Production Program: Opportunity. When you work with your mentor, it’s your chance to show them - and yourself - you belong there. Whether it’s tidying up the office during the time between sessions or stepping up to lead a session yourself, consider this your interview.
But you’re not just here to impress your mentor. How you interact with clients and other music producers during these sessions will go a long way to getting their number in your phone. It could be anticipating when a singer needs another bottle of water or introducing a slight tweak to improve an established beat.
Being responsible. Doing what you say you’re going to do. Putting away the phone when you’re supposed to be working - unless you’re trying to bring in a new client into the studio. These are the actions of someone who wants to be in the business. And, more importantly, wants to stay there.
Our most successful graduates found work in the studios they externed with, were hired by other recording studios, or put in the work to open their own studios. There have been times a student has been hired halfway through the program because they made themselves indispensable.
If you can do that, clients will be asking to put your number in their phones. We give you the opportunities to make a name for yourself. But it’s up to you how your name will be remembered.
