Milwaukee

Audio and Music Production School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

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 Milwaukee, Wisconsin MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE

We hit different and here is why:

For many traditional careers, a four-year degree is an absolute necessity. Some require six or even eight years of college or university work. For specialties, you may even be required to attend certain schools hundreds or thousands of miles away. Each step costing that much more than the one that came before it.

Fortunately, the music industry isn’t “traditional.” Recording Connection believes the best way to make your way in a creative business is to get your hands dirty from day one. For our Audio Engineering and Music Production Program (and other programs), we’ll put you in a MILWAUKEE RECORDING STUDIO alongside a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER from the start.

You’ll still have required reading (e-book), quizzes, and tests – this is an educational institution after all – you’ll be working on the gear the pros use. You could help mic up sessions with clients, assist the engineer or producer, and learn the hows and whys of the craft. If you prove your worth, you’ll even get the opportunity to take over a session of your own.

And while you’re gaining experience on the latest digital audio workstations, handling different personalities, and working with the latest gear, those in a traditional university setting will be elbowing out other students for lab time and nowhere near a commercial recording studio. With the MILWAUKEE RECORDING CONNECTION you learn where the actual work gets done. 

The key to our programs? Instead of taking classes they want you to take when they want you to take them, we ask you, “Where do you want to go?” Along with an Academic Facilitator, you’ll have a say in your schedule and what you want to learn. If you already know how to install and use certain plug-ins, we’re not going to waste any time teaching you all over again.

But if you need help, if you have questions, or if you’re feeling a little lost – just ask! That’s why we offer one-on-one time with a mentor: So you can get your questions answered instead of struggling to get attention in a crowded classroom. This is your time, you don’t have to share with anyone. Our knowledgeable Academic Facilitators act as your remote second mentors. They can talk you through the big picture concepts, help you install software, even help you with your latest track. 

While Recording Connection offers a lot when it comes to learning and building opportunities, consider it your job to take advantage of all of it. Remember, these are professionals you’ll be working with. Our mentors are on the clock – if you’re wasting their time, you’re costing them money. You’re here to work, not play on your phone. Bring drive, determination, and an unwavering belief in yourself and we’ll provide the foundation.

CLOSE TO HOME OR IN YOUR HOME

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

A true college town, there are plenty of places to see live music or hear local bands over the airwaves. So you’ll be able to find a MILWAUKEE AUDIO ENGINEER SCHOOL with relative ease. But how many offer the fully immersive environment of Recording Connection? And how many offer remote learning?

No matter how close the learning opportunities are, there are times when even they aren’t available. As the 2020 pandemic introduced social distancing and self-quarantines, Recording Connection didn’t miss a beat. We’ve been offering remote learning for decades now, giving our students valuable one-on-one access to their mentors even if they aren’t in the same building.

And with more than 250 mentors around the United States, remote learning means you can work with audio engineers and music producers in Milwaukee, Los Angeles, or New York without uprooting your life. This kind of access and flexibility is unsurpassed.

WHAT WE OFFER

Work with the Stars or Amplify Your Sound

Our mentors are here to make you better at audio engineering and music production, giving you the building blocks to make a career in the music industry. This could mean producing your own music or working exclusively on the other side of the glass. If you’re looking for an in-studio job, Recording Connection gives you the chance to impress potential employers from the jump.

If you prove your worth from day one, learn the process the way your mentor wants you to, act professionally and responsibly, you could jump from “student” to “employee” after nine months. Many of our students have gone on to work with their former mentors or find work at other studios based on solid word of mouth. 

Other students built such solid relationships they were able to open their own studios with a ready-made list of clients. In one memorable case, a student was hired by a touring group in the middle of the program!

What we want to say is this: Recording Connection gives you the opportunity to make connections from day one. But it’s up to you to make the most of it. Treat every day like an interview – because it could lead to your first paying job in the industry.
