Our Music Production School Teaches you the Skills you need

So much of what a music producer does is learned on the job, inside a recording studio, working with artists on both sides of the glass. You just can’t get that kind of experience from a classroom environment–you need to be immersed in the industry to know how the industry works.

The Recording Connection Music Production Program does just that. We place you inside a professional studio from the start so you get first-hand, real world knowledge of what goes into making a hit record. You’ll see the give and take between the client and producer, set up an actual sound studio, and learn how to set up before a session.

Learn Music Production from a Pro, Not a Professor

Recording Connection students learn from our mentors in a one-on-one environment, not with a group of other students in front of a teacher or professor. Our mentors have won Grammys, sold millions of records, and worked with the biggest stars on the planet. They make their living producing music, not talking about it.

Our mentors are experienced, respected in the music industry, and are willing to teach the next generation of superstar producers. Most importantly, they teach you how music is made today because they’re the ones making it. Think about it: If you had the skills to work with Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Kanye West, and Justin Timberlake, would you be in front of a university classroom or behind the glass at a recording studio?
