Why Mentors Make Better Teachers
At the Recording Connection, we use mentors for teachers. What does this mean? Teachers at audio trade schools are either people who could not make a living in the music business or they have retired from the music business. Nothing wrong with them as people, but seriously, you can do better if you want to learn audio engineering, music producing, sound mixing, etc.
At The Recording Connection you always learn from a mentor who is CURRENTLY working at a top notch, professional recording studio. That means they are current, and up to date, with the technology, the trends and the players in the music business. In other words, they are in touch.
Learning from a mentor also means that you are learning privately–just you and your mentor, so you learn at your pace, get turned on to years of experience and professional tricks of the trade, and get guidance on your career path of choice from someone who makes a living doing just what you want to do when you graduate.
Teachers are great. They perform a valuable service. But if you are serious about a career in the music business, mentors are a better choice.
