Detroit

Audio and Music Production School in Detroit, Michigan

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 Detroit, Michigan MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE

We hit different and here is why: 

For as long as you’ve been in school, it was the same situation. You’re in a class with a bunch of other students, each vying for attention or trying to get their questions answered. Or maybe you have to take a class because “they” say you need it before moving on to what you really want to do.

If you’re paying for the class, shouldn’t you have some say in how it’s taught? That’s what Recording Connection offers students who want to learn AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION IN DETROIT. We’ll place you in a one-on-one situation, inside a PROFESSIONAL DETROIT RECORDING STUDIO with an industry insider.

They will teach the curriculum around what you want to learn. While there are standard elements everyone in the industry should know, your mentor will fine-tune the experience to fit your career goals. Learning music theory, how to set up a studio for different genres of music, and building a brand are just a few of the aspects you’ll learn to master.

Beyond how you learn, and where you learn, you also have a say in when you learn. For a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER, the term “nine to five” doesn’t exist. That means you can still keep your day job and tend to family commitments while you learn with the Recording Connection.

But let’s be clear: This is not a hobby to our mentors, real word DETROIT MUSIC PRODUCERS. This is their profession and it could be yours, too. But you have to want it. We’ll give you a foundation, but you’ll have to take the initiative. You begin to learn when to ask for help, when your mentor needs your help, and when an artist expects your help. 

In the music industry, who you know matters almost as much as what you know. That’s why we feel working with a DETROIT MUSIC PRODUCER in real-life situations is so much more beneficial than the piece of paper you get after four years at a college. And when touring acts and their music producers think of you – what will they remember?

CLOSE TO HOME OR IN YOUR HOME

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

From Hockeytown to Hitsville, Motown to The Motor City, Detroit has picked up more than its fair share of nicknames.

We have multiple mentors in the Detroit area, but we understand that you may not always be able to make it into the studio. And as the Covid-19 pandemic showed us, even leaving the home isn’t always an option. But Recording Connection in Detroit is ready.

DETROIT MENTOR INFORMATION

WHAT WE OFFER

Work with the Stars or Amplify Your Sound

In addition to giving you more real-world experience, in less time, and at a fraction of the cost of a four-year university, the DETROIT RECORDING CONNECTION also offers something just not available at those name schools: Opportunity. Are their classrooms open when Dr. Dre comes to work on a track at 11 p.m.?

Of course not. But our mentors are. And where will you be? Our programs are designed to give you a real-world, fully immersive recording studio experience. And late night and early mornings are just part of the biz. That’s when music is made, albums are mastered, and deals are struck.

Now, billion-dollar moguls won’t be coming through those studio doors every night. In fact, they may never come through those doors. But working with up and comers, regional acts, and even corporations will help you build your portfolio and, more importantly, get paid.

It’s a simple equation. You can attend a four-year school and leave with a piece of paper OR grind for nine months and leave the Program with a portfolio of your work, a number of music industry contacts, and maybe even a job waiting for you. What makes more sense?
