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

More than 30 years ago, we didn’t like what we were seeing when it came to audio engineering and music production schools. Students were spending a lot of time in the classroom and not enough time with the gear. They were taking classes they didn’t need and having to upend their lives to meet a predetermined schedule.

And they had to pay an exorbitant amount of money to attend these “name” universities and spend four years of their life for a piece of paper and a firm handshake. We thought there had to be a better way. And we feel we’ve created a more efficient, more valuable, less expensive, and less time-consuming way of learning how to make music and how to make a career in music.

We place you inside a real-world VANCOUVER BC RECORDING STUDIO where you’ll get one-on-one facetime with a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER. If you’re accepted into our audio engineering and music production program, you’ll be in the studio from the start. You’ll see how your mentor moves around the studio, how they operate the equipment, and how they interact with their clients.

Our mentors work with local, regional, and even international acts. They tend to have the latest and greatest equipment and their studios are designed for optimal output. Their talent, experience, agility, and determination have allowed them to open studios and keep them open. And, with us, you’ll be part of the action—not on the outside looking in.

We totally understand that some professions need that traditional time in the classroom. But the music industry is anything but traditional. You’ll work with an Academic Facilitator to set your schedule, set your curriculum, and set your goals. We’re anxious to groom the next generation of audio engineers and music producers, mixing tried and true techniques with the latest technologies used by the biggest stars around the world.

Ready to Amplify Your Life? Join us and make it happen.

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

Vancouver, BC, is a truly international city and there are no shortages of AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION SCHOOLS to choose from. But how many of those schools offer the fully immersive environment of the VANCOUVER, BC, RECORDING CONNECTION? The ability to be in a recording studio in your home town with a working audio professional means you don’t have to leave the city to build the foundation you need to have a career in the music business. Why leave the country and spend the money to uproot your life, if you don’t have to? But what if you can’t even leave your house? As social distancing and self-quarantine became part of everyday language in 2020, Recording Connection already had the infrastructure in place to remain open for our students. We’ve been offering remote learning for more than two decades now. So you can pick and choose which mentor you want to work with without leaving your home. With a strong enough computer and reliable internet, you can learn the blues from a Memphis audio engineer or rock out with your favorite Detroit music producer.

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

Recording Connection offers a world-class education, exposure to the gear used by your favorite artists and producers, and a curriculum based on what you want to learn. But the most important thing we offer is an opportunity. Every day you’ll be working with potential employers and clients, the people that will pay you to work with them. That’s the point, right? If this is just a hobby for you, our programs probably aren’t for you. But if you’re ready to put in the work, learn when to speak up and when to sit back, and make yourself invaluable to anyone and everyone that walks through those studio doors, we give you the opportunity to prove yourself. Make no mistake—it’s a lot of hard work. Work that isn’t always glamorous, work that doesn’t stop when you leave the studio. We give you a taste of what it’s like to make a living in the real world. And if you’re hungry enough, you’ll take advantage of it. Our most successful graduates have found work with the mentors they studied under, been hired by clients they’ve worked with during the program or went on to find employment with other studios based on positive word of mouth. Who you know is just as important as what you know. With us, you can get started building those connections in a holistic manner while you grow your skillset and knowledge of the craft. We’ll help you build a foundation, but what you build on top of that is up to you. How do you want to be remembered? To make it happen, YOU need to put in the work. Put in the effort with Recording Connection and you could walk away with a job after nine months.
