San Antonio

Audio and Music Production School in San Antonio, Texas

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 San Antonio, Texas MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE

We hit different and here is why: 

There are a few different directions you can go about getting the experience you need to make a career in audio engineering and music production. You can spend a few hours a week, reading through online tutorials, watching YouTube videos, and trying to figure things out your own way; that’s one direction.

Or, you could also spend six figures on a four-year university. Take the prerequisites you don’t really need, potentially move thousands of miles away from your life, and end up with a diploma, a pat on the back, and not much else. Their schedule, their lesson plans, their class sizes. Their rules.

Then there’s the Recording Connection way. You set your schedule, you choose what programs you want to take, and you get to work one-on-one with a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER. There are no classrooms, just PROFESSIONAL SAN ANTONIO RECORDING STUDIOS. Whether you have recorded a few tracks of your own, once played in the high school band, or know the difference between a treble and a bass clef, or not.

There are SAN ANTONIO AUDIO ENGINEERING SCHOOLS to choose from, but how many put you in a real-world recording studio in the first week, giving you a fully immersive, hands-on experience over a six-to-nine month period? With us, the Recording Connection Academic Facilitator, your mentor, and you will collaborate on a schedule and customize your training program to suit your needs.

The music industry doesn’t have a standard work environment, so why should your audio engineering or music production education be based on protocols made up by academics, not working, practicing audio engineers and music producers? With us, there is still an eBook you’ll be required to read, there are still exams you’ll need to take, and there will still be plenty of homework but it’s all industry-oriented and written by practitioners, not pontificators. 

This isn’t playtime, remember. Our San Antonio mentors are working in the real world, so you’ll be expected to do the same. This is the time to understand how to interact with clients and anticipate their needs, how to set up a studio for recording, and when to chime in, when to sit back and just let the magic happen.

So put away your phone – it’s time to Amplify Your Life.

CLOSE TO HOME OR IN YOUR HOME

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

The music industry has come a long way since having to get every instrument and vocal performer in the same room to record a song. The technology is such that individual tracks can be recorded at different times and brought together for final mastering. Recording Connection also takes advantage of that technology, allowing our mentors and students to remain in contact through rain, sleet, or snow.

Or worldwide pandemics. As 2020 showed us, it’s not always possible – or advisable – to spend time in the studio. But it’s not an issue for Recording Connection. For decades we’ve been offering remote learning to make sure we’re as accessible as possible for our students. Although we have locations in San Antonio, all over Texas, and throughout the U.S. and Canada, sometimes it just makes more sense to stay home.

Not only does this allow our students, and our mentors, to remain safe, it also means you don’t need to move to New York or L.A. to work with the music producers you admire most. The San Antonio music scene has much to offer, but if you want to work with someone based in Chicago or San Francisco, we can make it happen. You just need to have a powerful enough computer and reliable internet access.

Featured San Antonio Music Production Mentors on Location or Remote

The Recording Connection offers something no “name” 4-year university or audio engineering and music production trade school can. From day one, you’ll be placed in a professional recording studio and receive one-on-one mentoring from award-winning producers and engineers.

With more than 200 locations throughout 48 states, you won’t have to travel thousands of miles for this immersive experience. You learn what it takes to make it in the music business from the inside alongside industry professionals. This includes recording, mixing and mastering, hardware and software, live sound design, and even business skills.

WHAT WE OFFER

Work with the Stars or Amplify Your Sound

Our San Antonio mentors work with newcomers, regional stalwarts, and national touring acts. They need to be ready to work with little notice, make sure the studio is ready to go, and have the ability to switch between genres at a moment’s notice. The SAN ANTONIO RECORDING CONNECTION will put you in the middle of it, a front-row seat to how the music industry really operates.

We feel the access we give you to working professionals, on both sides of the glass, is unsurpassed. Other educational institutions are not equipped to offer the direct mentorship and connection building opportunities we do. Such opportunities may be the most valuable aspect of the Recording Connection audio engineering and music production programs. But, hey, there’s a whole lot to love and really dig into if you’re willing to apply your mind, heart, and body to the challenge of learning and growing as much as possible. 

In the biz, who you know is just as important as what you know. Or, more accurately, who knows you. Your mentor will bring in clients and give you the opportunity to build your brand and expand your portfolio. During these interactions, how will you be remembered? How do you want to be remembered?

As your good name begins to grow, and you start to bring in clients of your own, you will be making your own opportunities. Working with clients in the studio is just one part of the job. If you’re the one bringing those clients in, you’ve just made yourself that much more valuable to your mentor.

Think of this program as one massive job interview or resume. Many of our most successful graduates find work at the studios they learned in or with other engineers based on recommendations. Make yourself indispensable. When you finish the program, will it end with a shrug – or a job?

It’s a simple equation. You can travel thousands of miles to train in another country, attend a four-year school, and be shown the door with a pretty piece of paper. Or, you can work your butt off, build a portfolio, improve your brand, and maybe even a job waiting for you after nine months. What makes more sense?

SAN ANTONIO MENTOR INFORMATION

Our San Antonio mentors have decades of experience in the music industry, working in jazz and fusion, broadway productions, opera companies, and backing rock bands. Our San Antonio mentors have worked as musicians and engineers, giving them a unique understanding of what is needed from each side of the glass.

One thing both sides of the audio and music production coin can agree on: having the right gear matters. Working with a little of the new (Pro Tools HD digital audio workstation with a Mac Pro dual Quad Core 2.8 Ghz with 14 GB ram), a little of the old (vintage Neve 8232 consoles and analog recorders), and a lot of everything else (Yamaha, Dynaudio, Genelec monitors; MIDI synths; preamps, and a variety of mics) to properly fill out a studio.
