Audio and Music Production School in Austin, Texas

Not like any other school, this is Audio Education Updated, Reimagined, and Revitalized. Are You Ready to Take Your Place?

We took that old stale classroom concept, rebuilt and upgraded it by putting your classroom in a professional recording studio. Then we emptied out all the other students and left only YOU and YOUR TEACHER (yay for one-on-one learning!) who happens to be a pro music producer (with killer credits) to train you privately (at your pace, full time, part time, nights or weekends available).

Your Austin, Texas MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL

We hit different and here is why: 

Working in a creative field just isn’t like other “normal” jobs. Recording Connection ascertained that learning about a creative industry couldn’t be done holistically in a conventional learning environment. After all, Dr. Dre didn’t become the head of a billion-dollar headphone company by sitting in a classroom. He did it by spending time in the recording studio.

That’s what the Recording Connection AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION SCHOOL IN AUSTIN will do for you. You’ll be placed inside a real-world recording studio, working one-on-one with a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER, learning the gear, and helping with clients.

You won’t need to carry around eight books or worry about early morning math classes, but there is an eBook you’re expected to read and plenty of work to do on your own time. However, the curriculum will be customised around your needs, not something that has been rehashed year after year, though we’ll be sure to include the foundations everyone should know. 

The music producing biz can move pretty fast. What was standard operating procedure five years ago may seem archaic today. That’s why we feel working in an actual AUSTIN RECORDING STUDIO now can be worth so much more than sitting in a four-year university classroom. 

For much less money, too. Where we really separate ourselves from other institutes of higher learning is the amount of time and money you need. Our programs last from six to nine months and cost a fraction of those “name” schools. 

Let’s face it—in the music industry, who you know matters almost as much as what you know. That’s why we feel working with a AUSTIN MUSIC PRODUCER in real-life situations is so much more beneficial than the piece of paper you get after four years at a college.

CLOSE TO HOME OR IN YOUR HOME

10 Miles, 10 Blocks, or 10 Seconds away from your future

Austin is the counterculture hub of Texas, blending good ol’ boy vibes with tex-mex flavor. New and emerging as well as the tried and true can be heard in the city, so chances are there’s more than one AUSTIN AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOL to choose from. However, very few offer the fully immersive environment of the AUSTIN RECORDING CONNECTION.

But what happens when a worldwide pandemic closes down those other studios? Does the making of music just stop? Not with the Recording Connection. For decades we’ve been perfecting remote learning for those that can’t get to the studio. It could be transportation issues, family commitments, or even governmental guidelines to keep people safe.

So if you can’t make it to the studio of your choice, we’ll bring it to you. All you need is a computer fast enough to handle a digital audio workstation (DAW) and a reliable internet connection. Because even during Covid-19, the world still needs music. With us, we can keep you on track to making that music.

Featured Austin Music Production Mentors on Location or Remote

The Recording Connection offers something no “name” 4-year university or audio engineering and music production trade school can. From day one, you’ll be placed in a professional recording studio and receive one-on-one mentoring from award-winning producers and engineers.

With more than 200 locations throughout 48 states, you won’t have to travel thousands of miles for this immersive experience. You learn what it takes to make it in the music business from the inside alongside industry professionals. This includes recording, mixing and mastering, hardware and software, live sound design, and even business skills.

WHAT WE OFFER

Work with the Stars or Amplify Your Sound

Seems like an ideal situation, right? You get to set your schedule, customize the program of your choosing, and spend days, weeks, and months of one-on-one time with a music producing professional. The programs last just six to nine months and you won’t go into six figures of debt like you would with a four-year university.

There’s one thing all educational institutions should hope you achieve, though: getting a job. With the Recording Connection, you could be “interviewing” for jobs from the start. We say this because from day one, you’ll be showing your mentor if you have the responsibility, the personality, and the tenacity to make it in the business.

Many of our students have gone on to work at the recording studios they learned in while others have found work at other studios based on their mentor’s recommendation. Other students have been hired by clients they worked with during the program or even opened their own studios when the program was complete.

Do you know what happens when you show your mentors, clients, other engineers, or producers that you know what you’re doing? They’ll call YOU about a job, not the other way around. Build a portfolio, create a brand, and make the most of these opportunities and who’s to say how far you can go?! A university may have name recognition, but after four years, all they offer is a degree. With us, you could already have three years of experience in audio production or as a live sound engineer. What makes more sense to you?

AUSTIN, TX, MENTOR INFORMATION

With a combination of old school equipment and new wave gear, Recording Connection Mentors in Austin have the ability to record a variety of clients. With a classic Neve Series 80 console as well as a full-blown Pro Tools digital audio workstation system, you’ll receive a well-rounded education on the technical side of making music.

But audio engineers need to know more than just vintage analog or modern digital equipment. Learning when to use the iso booths or live studios with their 18-foot ceilings to get the sound your clients want is just as important as finding the right sample or loop. Having a fully-loaded studio to learn in is important because you never know who you’ll be recording.

Our Austin mentors have worked Slayer and Sheryl Crow; Chamillionaire, Devin The Dude, and Pharrel; Diplo, Tyga, and Jack Kill and The Stickmen. Whether they’re local indie rockers or international touring DJs, you’ll need to know how to handle them and the gear. With the Austin Recording Connection mentors, you can get the knowledge, connections, and opportunities you need to get that career off to a solid start.
