The Recording Connection in Virginia has a very special secret when it comes to success in the audio engineering world. We know that the way to get into this business is through real-world experience and connections.  That’s why we place each of our students into a real recording studio as an extern, pairing each one with a seasoned industry pro for personalized instruction. This pro takes the student under his/her wing to show the student everything there is to know about the audio engineering world. The pro makes sure that they’re learning industry software programs like Ableton, Pro Tools, Logic, Nmore, and Reason, as well as the ins and outs of the recording and mixing processes.  By the time you graduate, you’ll be well-connected and qualified to work in any recording studio in the world.

We are the only audio engineering school alternative in the country that actually helps you start your career. We help you get your foot in the door. We want you to meet established engineers and producers. We want you to show them your work. We want you to be making connections and forging relationships.
