Why learn audio or music production from an instructor on a campus when you can learn from a pro in his or her Wilmington studio?

On Location, Or Remote.

If you’re looking for a great audio engineering school in Wilmington, Delaware, look no further. The RECORDING CONNECTION is the alternative to conventional recording school that gets you in the door of a real Wilmington-area recording studio, working as a student extern with a seasoned professional while you learn your choice of music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub fusion, industrial, house music, trance and more), club DJ and post production audio. In Wilmington, DE, there’s no better way to break into the music recording business than by externing in a real recording studio—and no better school alternative than the Recording Connection to put you there.

You have a choice: you could spend 50 thousand dollars or more to learn audio engineering in a stale classroom, or you could pay a fraction of that amount and learn more effectively inside a real recording studio. Make the smart choice for your career—learn from real professionals and make powerful industry connections while you get your education. No typical school prepares you for a music industry career more effectively or affordably than our music production school alternative.

The largest city in the small state of Delaware, Wilmington is home to just over 70,000 people. Despite its relatively small size as compared to other major cities along the eastern seaboard, Wilmington is nicknamed the “Corporate Capital of the World,” serving as a national financial hub for the credit card industry in particular. Wilmington also hosts an active music scene, with bands and artists performing a variety of genres and recording in several high quality recording studios throughout the area. Thousands of music fans converge on Wilmington several times a year, for the week-long Clifford Brown Jazz Festival, the three-day Riverfront Blues Festival, and the People’s Festival, an annual Bob Marley tribute. And located just 40 minutes from Philadelphia and 90 minutes from New York City, Wilmington offers easy access to at least two other major music industry hubs. If you want to launch a career as a music producer or audio engineer, Wilmington, DE provides a great place to learn—and the RECORDING CONNECTION can get you closer to the action than any ordinary audio school can.

Due to our many industry connections forged throughout the years, we’re in a unique position to train you in a real recording studio near where you live. Through our revolutionary mentor-extern (externship) approach, we pair you with an experienced professional producer/engineer for on-the-job training, combining a structured curriculum with plenty of hands-on experience on real recording projects. Not only does this give you a highly effective practical education, but it also puts you in close contact with plenty of industry professionals, giving you the chance to make career connections you’d never make in a classroom. Our results are indisputable: many of our graduates get hired, many times by the very people who train them! You owe it to yourself to find out what our Wilmington Audio Engineering School alternative can do for your career.

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!
