We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only audio school alternative that gets you inside an actual Waco-Temple-Bryan area recording studio, where you will work as an audio student extern and learn music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (video game music, acid house, dub fusion, electronica and more), electronic DJ and post production audio. In the central Texas region, the best way to get started in a career in audio is by externing at a recording studio in Waco, Temple or Bryan–and that’s where we come in.

The cities of Waco, Temple and Bryan are located in the south-central region of Texas, with a combined population of over a quarter million people among the three cities. Although not an area people generally associate with the music business, the Waco-Temple-Bryan has an active music scene, fueled in part by the presence of several area colleges. While local bands and smaller touring acts regularly frequent such venues as Fitzwilly’s Common Grounds Coffee and Hog Creek Icehouse, larger acts make tour stops at larger venues such as the Waco Convention Center. Notable musicians with ties to this area include pop/rock siblings Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, Ted Nugent, Willie Nelson, and the David Crowder Band, to name a few.

A number of recording studios can be found in the Waco-Temple-Bryan area, accommodating the needs of the music community here. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, the Waco-Temple-Bryan area 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!
