Quinton Velez – Chicago, Illinois

In the Summer of 2020, I contemplated what it was that I really wanted to do in life. Part of me wanted to learn how to make music. After a bit of research, I came across the Recording Connection. I decided I was going to take the Ableton Live course due to it being recommended by my mentor and Facilitator, and I was not disappointed. In the beginning I struggled mentally, with this being my first DAW I knew that the first few months were going to be tough, but I persevered. I write this on my graduation date, 3/16, to say to anyone reading this or considering the Recording Connection: Everything is going to take time. Rome was not built in a day. These were the sayings I was told throughout the course that genuinely really helped me. A HUGE thanks to my mentor Mike P. who took me in on Day 1 without knowing a lick of Ableton. If there was ever a time I was struggling during the course (which happened a lot early on), he never would hesitate to reach out. All-in-all I have no regrets applying to this school and taking this course. I learned so much in such a short amount of time, it's unbelievable actually.
