Audio and Music Production School in Cleveland, Ohio

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).

What can you say about Cleveland and its place in the music-making universe? Its history is steeped in different kinds of music. DJ Alan Freed turned Cleveland into a bit of a rock and roll hot spot back in the day and now it’s the location of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Every year, some of the biggest names in the music industry find their way to Cleveland for induction ceremonies.

There’s plenty of music to be made the rest of the year, too. Although there are cities with more historical cache (Chicago to the West, Detroit to the West, New York to the East, and Atlanta to the South), Cleveland makes no bones about their own musical pedigree.

Which makes it the perfect place for you to learn how the music industry works. Recording Connection will place you in a fully immersive environment alongside a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER. Other Cleveland audio production or music production schools put you in a classroom, offering little hands-on instruction. With us, it’s all about getting your hands dirty.

You don’t have to go into extreme debt to go to Music Production and Audio Engineering School

We can train you in a real recording studio for far less. Play it smart–get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio recording school is a highly effective and affordable way to start your audio engineering career.

You’ll still take the time to understand music theory, the physiology of sound, and how you perceive certain sounds. But, unlike conventional schools, with Recording Connection you’ll put the information to use almost immediately with standard industry audio gear that has been used for decades as well as the newest technology.

Where better to hear your evolution as a music producer than inside a CLEVELAND RECORDING STUDIO? Traditional audio engineering schools may have occasional lab time where you can work a few hours a week. The Cleveland Recording Connection flips the script – it’s almost all lab time with us, though your “lab” isn’t a lab at all—it’s a legit, open-for-business recording studio.
