When I was a Recording Connection student, I got right into the studio and surpassed all expectations that my mentors’ had for me. Any matters or assistance ever needed, I jumped right in there and assisted at all times. Furthermore, we had a very good relationship and as m y mentor, he always took the time to speak with me if I needed any assistance as well.
When I first began the program, I asked my mentor right off the bat if I could have a job at the studio the Recording Connection placed me as an extern in. However, at that time, my mentor could not hire me. I was advised that one day, when the company expanded, that I would be offered a paid position within the company. So, I stuck it out as an extern and taking a leap of faith, learned everything I needed to know about the studio, and music industry, and continued my learning growth pattern.
Once I graduated the program, I continued my career in the industry and worked on the tools I had been trained on as an extern. Two years later, my mentor called me so set up an appointment over dinner, for him to discuss some details with me. When I got to dinner, my mentor notified me that the company was currently expanding and building a new studio within the expanded company. Right then and there to work for my mentors company, hired as the staff engineer and producer. I put in the dedication and in the end, it has finally started to pay off for me. Now, I have clients of all genres that I work with, providing the complete recording, mixing, and mastering of all sessions. I am so proud of my progression and I owe it all to my mentor, and the Recording Connection.
