Audio and Music Production School in Denver, Colorado

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).

We hit different and here is why: 

They say those that can, do. Those that can’t, teach. But Recording Connection mentors do both! We partner with PRO MUSIC PRODUCERS for our Denver audio engineering schools, which means you’ll be working with industry insiders from day one. With us it’s possible to learn in the DENVER AUDIO RECORDING STUDIOS they work in, use the gear they use, and work with the artists they work with.

The ivy-covered walls of a well-known university may have decades-old name recognition, but the talent our Denver audio engineer educators work with are making hits in the music business TODAY. Doesn’t it make sense to learn in a real-world studio with a professional DENVER MUSIC PRODUCER instead of some stuffy classroom?

At the end of our DENVER AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION PROGRAMS, you’ll have a portfolio of finished work, the experience of working in a live recording studio, and connections not normally available to you in a classroom setting. And the Recording Connection does it all at a fraction of the cost and in less than a year!

Featured Denver 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.


As one of the most populated cities in the United States, Denver has the culture to attract a wide range of people. Professional sports teams, a diverse arts scene, and entertainment venues that draw in the biggest names of the music world. And the Denver Recording Connection Mentors have worked with them all.

Out mentors have worked with acts and artists throughout the musical spectrum, from hip hop impresarios like Redman, Kanye, and Eminem to the seminal acts of our youth like N’Sync, Gladys Knight, and Whitney Houston, Faith Hill, Toni Braxton, and The Fugees, and unto The horrorcore of Insane Clown Posse and the spectral pop of Comfort Cloud. Our mentors also produce the music used by corporate world heavyweights like EMI, Sony, Pepsi, and Universal. And did you know, Denver also has one of the most thriving EDM scenes in the United States?  From EDM festivals at Red Rocks, to a thriving EDM club circuit including Temple Nightclub, The Fillmore Auditorium, Ogden Theatre and Tracks, there’s no shortage of venues where you can get your groove on and maybe even get your tracks played. 

And if you’re going to work with the best and the biggest, you need to make sure your studio is state of the art, packed with all of the most up to date gear. Multiple live rooms, control rooms, the largest recording facility in Denver, and the most powerful digital audio workstations available are standard with our mentors. 

The latest version of ProTools, powerful DigiDesign control boards, Quad Core Mac Pros, JBL and Yamaha Monitors, 52-inch LCD displays, and enough mics to get the exact sounds you need from the artists. As technology improves, our Denver recording studios will certainly keep pace.


Work with the Stars or Amplify Your Sound

We choose our Denver mentors using very strict guidelines. First, they have to be good at what they do. Many of our mentors have won mulftiple Grammy awards and worked with even more Grammy award winners. They have the talent to spare. But they also need a desire to mold the next generation of music producers.

From audio engineers and music producers to beatmakers and Live DJs, our mentors look forward to seeing what you have to offer the music industry. And with the hands-on nature of our programs, you could be showing local, regional, and national acts the talent you bring to the table as well. 

This is where we feel Recording Connection provides the most bang for your buck: Connections. If you prove you can do the work, and hold yourself professionally during these sessions, you’ll never know who will come calling for your services. Our most successful students have been hired by other studios to work in-house, while others have been hired to travel with touring acts.

Our students have been hired by their mentors and still more have gone on to open their own shops, start their own labels, or hit the road with artists like Aminé, Beyoncé, and others. But they put in the time, the effort, the blood, and the tears to make that happen for themselves. We’ll give you the foundation, but we can’t guarantee a career. That’s up to you.

If you want to make it, you’ll learn the industry from the inside, build a brand, and produce your portfolio. A university may have name recognition but the DENVER RECORDING CONNECTION PROGRAM gets you training in accord with real, up to the moment practices, with real working pros. We do it in months, too, not several years. All those college and university programs offer is a degree. Just consider what that piece of paper would mean to the pros who do the work, day in and day out. With us, you could already have three years of experience in audio production, as a music producer, live sound engineer or DJ or beatmaker by the time students who’ve opted for conventional college instruction graduate. Just think of how much work you can do and how many credits you can amass in four years. What makes more sense to you?
