Nashville

Audio and Music Production School in Nashville, Tennessee

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 Nashville, Tennessee MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE

We hit different and here is why: 

Nashville is called “Music City, U.S.A.” for a reason. Long recognized as the country music capital of the world, Nashville is actually one of the world’s biggest hubs for the music industry in general. While country music certainly dominates the musical landscapes, there are hotbeds of rock, punk, hip-hop, gospel, folk, old-time, and even R&B throughout the city as well.

With the NASHVILLE RECORDING CONNECTION, you can learn how to record every genre, work with small local bands, and handle the personalities of even the largest touring acts. Because you’re placed in the middle of the action from day one. Our audio engineering school is designed to give you real-world experience wrapped in a learning environment.

You’ll be placed in a NASHVILLE RECORDING STUDIO and get one-on-one mentoring with a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER. You’ll learn what it takes to operate a studio, how to prepare for sessions, and work with the latest gear. And we mean work, too. This isn’t a hobby for our mentors, it’s their livelihood.

However, we understand you have a life of your own, too. Along with an Academic Facilitator, you’ll have a say in what your schedule is and the curriculum will be based on what you want to know and what you already know. This doesn’t mean you already have to have some experience in audio engineering, but if you already understand the basics of digital audio workstations, your mentor can move on to something more advanced.

After nine months, you will have built a portfolio of work, established a network of contacts, and maybe even a job waiting for you. We can’t guarantee work of course. But successful students have gone on to find work with their mentors, other studios, or even on their own. A lot of it depends on you. Are you ready to amplify your life?

CLOSE TO HOME OR IN YOUR HOME

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

While we feel being in the studio is the most beneficial way to learn modern audio engineering and music production, we understand it isn’t always possible. Recording Connection has more than 250 locations throughout the United States, but even if we’re just across town, coming into the studio may not be possible. 

Even before the pandemic of 2020, Recording Connection had been offering remote learning to our students. If your computer is powerful enough and you have reliable internet access, you’ll still be able to have that personalized experience with your mentor. For more than 20 years, our remote learning programs have given our students even greater access to quality education.

It also allows you to choose from our roster of mentors. Live in Nashville but are really interested in learning from one of our music producers in Chicago? With remote learning, you can. We have Grammy winners, platinum-record producers, and audio engineers known around the world. Take your pick!

WHAT WE OFFER

Work with the Stars or Amplify Your Sound

Our Audio Engineering and Music Production Programs last just six to nine months and cost less than $15,000, but we feel it’s the opportunities Recording Connection provides as the most invaluable piece of the puzzle. Every day you come to work is another chance to impress a potential employer or build a roster of clients.

Even if you’re tasked with tidying the office or setting up mics for an upcoming session, how you go about it will say a lot about you. Do you act responsibly or do you pout? Do you anticipate what a client might need or are you on your phone? Do you show up on time and keep to your word or do you go days without any communication? That being said, our students do need to read and take quizzes in our structured curriculum which can be modified to meet your goals and level of experience. Delivered via eBook format, our lessons are geared towards enabling you to acquire the foundational knowledge you need to make the most of one-on-one lessons with your mentor. 

You’ll be working with people who may have a job for you, may want to work with you, after the program. Think of your time with Recording Connection as one long interview and the portfolio you’re creating as a resume. What kind of first impression are you making? What will your mentor, other audio engineers and music producers, and potential clients remember about you?

Instead of looking for those opportunities, Recording Connection brings them to you. How will you handle yourself when those moments arise?
