Learn About Your Options

The New Jersey Recording Connection is one of the most successful and acclaimed alternatives to conventional audio engineering schools in the country. We operate with a unique blend of cutting edge curriculum and real world mentorship. Recording Connection students are paired with a mentor, placed in a real recording studio, and taught the tricks of the trade on-the-job. We think you’ll agree that’s more than any ordinary music production school can boast, or even attempt.

The Recording Connection is located in nearly every city in New Jersey, including Edison, Newark, New Brunswick, Trenton, Atlantic City and more. If we’re not in your town, and you want to attend our music production classes, we’ll open a new location, just for you.

Making connections in this industry is critical, so we put a huge emphasis on it. By training you in a real recording studio near where you live, we put you in the right place at the right time so that you can meet the right people. You need to make a name for yourself. You need to showcase your skills and prove that you’re ready to be put into the big game. Because our students enjoy a direct connection with the music industry as externs in real recording studios, most of our graduates move straight into employment after they graduate from our audio production school alternative. And even if you do not move directly into employment after you graduate, we offer a Job Assistance Program that lasts for up to a full year. We do whatever we can to help you become gainfully employed, one way or another.

The Recording Connection in New Jersey is one of the very few educational institutions that actually cares about the welfare of its students. We go the extra mile to assist you on your journey.

Our Approach to Education

We are not like ordinary audio or trade schools. We don’t waste your time in classrooms. This is the world of audio. Everything you need to know should be taught in the real world. We are unique, out-of-the-box thinkers. After over 3 decades service—we have the formula that works:

Private Mentor in Professional Recording Studio

Faculty: Private Academic Facilitator
+
Online, Interactive Curriculum
+
+
Meaningful Industry Connections

Hands-on Learning in a Recording Studio (Not a College Classroom)

You’ve got to put in your effort. You have to show the studio you’re actually going to show up, you’re going to be there, you’re going to work hard, and you know your stuff.
