WHAT WE OFFER
Work with the Stars or Amplify Your Sound
We’ve told you how you can save time and money by enrolling with the EL PASO, TX, RECORDING CONNECTION. You’ll have extensive one-on-one time with your mentor, an industry insider, in their real-world recording studio. You will have begun to create your brand and have a portfolio full of professional examples of your work.
But it gets better. So much of getting into the music industry is who you know, finding someone to give you your “big break.” Recording Connection will give you your first break on day one. Your mentor is already a professional, running a studio, and working with clients. Every day is a new day to impress them, to show that you have what it takes.
Several thousand students have gone on to find work in the industry after their time with Recording Connection. Many find work with their mentors in the studio they externed at. Others move on to other studios based on solid portfolios and good word of mouth. Some students became proficient enough to start landing their own clients and opening their own studios.
What are you going to do with your opportunities? If you make yourself irreplaceable during the time with your mentor, how can they let you get away? It means knowing when to make suggestions and when to hang back and let the magic happen. How to work with “the talent,” no matter what kind of music they play. How to prepare yourself for a session, how to set up the mics, and how to bring in your own clients to work.
You know – real-life stuff. Even though you’re a student, you’re already laying the groundwork for your future. We can give you the foundation, but the rest is up to you.
