Recording Connection is the Best Way to Learn Sound & Audio Engineering

Instead of sitting in a classroom, listening to lectures on audio engineering, we put you in a fully immersive environment. By learning Audio Engineering inside a professional studio, you’ll have a better understanding of how to prepare for a session, how to act with a client and other aspects of the job. It’s no longer theoretical at this point–it’s real life.

Our audio engineering course last six months to nine months and cost just a fraction of colleges, universities, and other trade schools. We’ll save you time and money while giving you the hands-on education you need to start looking for work in less than a year. After taking a 4-year degree program, you’ll have a diploma and a firm handshake. With us, you could have already graduated and have three years of job experience in the same amount of time.


Create Your Own Audio Engineering Program Curriculum

We understand you have a life outside of our programs. And while there are very strict parameters you must follow, we don’t feel you need to suspend your life while working towards a career in music. When accepted into the Audio Engineering & Music Production program, You, your Mentor, and your Academic Facilitator/Faculty member will collaborate on a schedule that works for everyone.

Working at odd hours is the norm for many of our mentors (the music industry never sleeps), so they have the flexibility to work when you’re able.

We take you out of the classroom and put you in a recording studio where you’ll learn one-on-one with an experienced audio engineer or music producer. Instead of requiring prerequisite classes, we craft our curriculum to meet your needs, addressing weaknesses and building up strengths.

Our Audio Engineering Program Mentors work with some of the biggest names in the industry, win Grammys, and produce platinum albums. They have years of experience working with all genres of music.
