Audio and Music Production School in Oakland, California

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).

If you want to be a lawyer, a teacher, a pharmacist or some other nine to five job, you’ll need to go to school. But Recording Connection knows becoming an audio engineer or music producer isn’t like a “traditional” job. And we believe you can’t truly learn how to do it in a “traditional” classroom environment.

When you LEARN AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION IN OAKLAND with us, you’ll be placed in a one-on-one situation with a professional music producer, learning how they set up a studio, work with artists, and take command of the most up-to-date gear.

You don’t have to go into extreme debt to go to Music Production and Audio Engineering School

We can train you in a real recording studio for far less. Play it smart–get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio recording school is a highly effective and affordable way to start your audio engineering career.

That’s where we really separate ourselves from four-year universities and other institutes of higher learning. The amount of time it takes to complete our audio engineering and music production program is six to nine months. The cost? A mere fraction of what those university and trade schools are asking for in tuition.

Let’s face it – in the music industry, who you know matters almost as much as what you know. That’s why we feel working with an OAKLAND MUSIC PRODUCER in real-life situations is so much more beneficial than the piece of paper you get after four years at a college.
