Blake comes from a place of personal experience, as he currently owns and operates two of his own studios with a focus on EDM music.

Your Wilmington, Delaware
Recording School Alternative
If you’re looking for a great audio engineering school in Wilmington, Delaware, look no further. The RECORDING CONNECTION is the recording school that gets you in the door of a real Wilmington-area recording studio, working as a student apprentice (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 apprenticing in a real recording studio—and no better school 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 school prepares you for a music industry career more effectively or affordably than our music production school.
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 other audio school can.

Jobs in the Music Business

The Wilmington, Delaware Recording Connection Audio School Advantage
We Are Located Everywhere.
The Recording Connection has locations worldwide, in every major city in the U.S., as well as across Canada, Australia and the U.K. Yes, even in Wilmington, Delaware. There's no need to relocate to attend our audio school—we can train you in a real recording studio right near where you live.
The other guys don't come close. Advantage: Recording Connection.
Stay Out of Debt with Low Tuition.
Student debt is the single greatest problem in modern education today. But not with us. At the Recording Connection, we keep our tuition so low that our students graduate with little or no debt. We think you should focus on your career when you graduate, not get bogged down in a job you hate just to pay your debts.
The other guys not only cost more, they have lots of add-on charges. Advantage: Recording Connection.
Be Taught in a Real Recording Studio.
Simply put, we don't believe in classrooms. At least, we don't believe in them where audio engineering is concerned. If you're going to learn to do this right, you need to learn it on-the-job. So from your very first day of your training until the day you graduate, you'll be trained in an actual, real recording studio.
Advantage: Recording Connection.
Just like we don't believe in classrooms, we don't believe in teachers—at least, not in the conventional sense. The best person to teach you the music industry is someone who works in the music industry. That's why when we place you for training in a real recording studio, we also pair you with a mentor, a real producer/engineer who teaches you one-on-one.
With us, you are always number one. Advantage: Recording Connection.
Our Mentors Are Highly Acclaimed.
Our mentors are the best. Truly. Not just because we like them—because they really are the best. Our mentors work with artists like Lady Gaga, Missy Elliot, U2, Aerosmith—the list goes on and on. Don't be surprised to see Gold and Platinum records on the walls of your mentor's studio—or even a Grammy or two.
Their teachers listen to the Gold Records our teachers produce. Advantage: Recording Connection.
True Job Placement Assistance.
The whole point of getting an education is to get a job—so why don't schools do more to help in this area? The Recording Connection does. Included in your course is an active job assistance program that helps you find work for up to a year after graduation, if you need it.
The other guys give you a cold-call lead list when you graduate. Advantage: Recording Connection.
Our school is one of the most recommended training programs in the entertainment industries. We have received glowing endorsements from some of biggest names in the business because they know how the business works—and they know that WE know how to help you break in.
You can count the number of pros who recommend the other guys on one hand. Advantage: Recording Connection.
The Inside Track.
In this business, you don't break in by simply having a degree, diploma or certificate that says you went through audio training. You need to become part of the industry—you need to become an insider. This is one of the most difficult hurdles to jump for most people trying to break in—but not with the Recording Connection. By training you on-the-job in a real studio, we get you inside the door from day one, so you have the opportunity to become part of the insider community from your very first day. (You can imagine what a leg up this can give you over your competition when they come knocking on the door with their resumes and diplomas.)
The other guys are on the outside, looking in. Advantage: Recording Connection.
If you get stuck on an assignment along the way, never fear—we're always here to help. We offer free and unlimited tutoring for all our students.
Unlimited free tutoring. Advantage: Recording Connection.
Perhaps the most important advantage of the Recording Connection is that by training you in the industry, we give you access to make lots of industry connections that you'd never get in a classroom. Why is this important? Because anyone will tell you connections are vital to becoming successful in this industry. Connections lead to jobs. We don't just teach you the ropes—we plug you in.
Real world music industry connections. Big Advantage: Recording Connection.
