All students have access to:
One on one learning in a real recording studio - other schools do classrooms and campus studio labs, with us, your classroom is a real studio in the real world.
All of our curriculum, labs, etc. are taught by a working industry professional - You will only learn from an industry veteran who owns or operates his or her own real-world recording studio. Other schools employ full-time teachers who may or may not have achieved success in the real world. Our mentors are not only artists in their craft but working, successful business pros! Imagine what you can learn from them.
Sit in on real life sessions - Many of our students have been offered the opportunity to work on real-world sessions while they are students with us!! Our students have worked with Beyoncé, Kanye West, Robert Plant, Miley Cyrus, Solange, Khalid, Lady Antebellum, Aerosmith, Marilyn Manson, Johnny Depp and Billy Bob Thornton to name a few while being taught by legendary producers Joe Chicarelli, Al Schmitt, Detail, Ross Hogarth, Ryan Hewitt, F. Reid Shippen and countless others.
All software and books are included in your tuition - compare that to other schools!
Tutoring - In addition to the industry pro who will be your mentor, tutoring is available to you for the entire time you are enrolled with us. Need help with your homework? Can't figure out Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic or more? Want to learn how to make more beats? Have a question you forgot to ask your mentor? Want career advice? Want us to help you build a song? Create a resume? Our tutors and Academic Facilitators are here for you!
Real Career Services - a word from our Career Services Dept. Our fully staffed Career Services Department exists for one reason—to help our students and graduates get hired. From helping you create an awesome resume, to handling and scheduling your job interview, to finding job opportunities in your area, we’ve got your back.
Additional Studio Time - the more you give to our programs the more you get. Want more time in the studio to study, practice or observe? Simply prove your passion and dedication to your mentor and you will find there is virtually no limit to studio access.
Lab Time – Personal, hands-on lab time is built into our program. You’ll never find yourself fighting over gear availability with dozens of other students. And speaking of gear, because you will be learning in a real-world recording studio you will be learning on the latest gear.
Real World Experience – The only way to learn how things work in the real world is to learn in the real world. Since our program places you inside a real-world recording studio on the very first day, you’ll learn all the essentials: studio etiquette, client relations, shortcuts, how to meet a deadline, the art of running a recording studio and so much more. This gives you a tremendous advantage over other schools’ students who never got off the campus and who graduate underprepared.
Connections – You’ve probably heard the expression “It’s who you know.” In the music industry this is definitely true. With The Recording Connection you have access to industry connections on a daily basis. As your progress with our program and start sitting in on recording sessions, you’ll meet your mentor’s connections-- artists, producers, mixers, managers, gear reps and many more. It’s networking from the inside.
Our Network, Once you are in with us, YOU ARE IN! The Recording Connection deals with hundreds of recording studios, audio engineers, music producers, mixers, record labels and studio owners on a daily basis. As long as you are a student or graduate, in good standing, of our programs, our access is your access.
Best in Town!
3 months into the program my mentor offered me a full-time staff position at his studio, so I am not only earning my certification through the Recording Connection, but I have now proved myself to my mentor and have earned a full-time position as part of his professional recording team at the studio. Presently I am really enjoying the program, as well as my continued success within the music industry. I am continuing to gain experience and perfecting my beats so I can take the hip-hop world with force.
