The Recording Connection is an industry-recognized school alternative, a program area of the Recording, Radio, Film Connection and CASA Schools (RRFC).

We are the audio school alternative that has taken a sledgehammer to the outdated way of learning audio and music production as it’s taught in most trade schools and universities. We don’t believe in traditional classrooms, we believe in learning in real recording studio environment. While we deeply respect professors and teachers at colleges and universities, we do things differently. Our students are learning from mentors who are professional audio engineers. Why? Because we believe it’s an effective way to learn audio engineering and music producing.

As a creative person, you need someone who can give you one on one attention and hands-on learning; someone who can also show you the ropes and help you on your career path; someone who can connect you. Why not choose to go with a mentor in a real recording studio, who’s probably worked with artists you know about, maybe even with the biggest bands in the world. There’s probably a mentor who’s ready, right now, to act as your private instructor, your guide to getting going in your career.

Meet Our Mentors

Our mentors have worked with the biggest names in the industry, won the biggest awards, and worked on platinum-selling albums. And now you get to work with them.
