Audio and Music Production School in Tampa, Florida

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).

We hit different and here is why:

When Recording Connection was created more than 30 years ago, we wanted to change the educational model for those wanting to learn audio engineering and music production. For so long, students needed to move hundreds of miles to attend a four-year university, sit in a classroom, and take turns on the gear with other students.

That’s because we put you in a PROFESSIONAL TAMPA RECORDING STUDIO on day one so you learn how music is made in today’s world. We place you in a one-on-one situation with a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER so you can learn how the experts operate in the studio. We let you choose your schedule so you can maintain a life – we understand you may have bills to pay after all.

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.

One bill you won’t have to pay is a six-figure student loan. Recording Connection audio engineering and music production programs cost a tenth of many four-year universities and take just six to nine months to complete. There are still ebooks to read, exams to take, and attendance is mandatory. But would you rather sit in a classroom or a professional recording studio?

TAMPA RECORDING STUDIOS available in town to help tighten sets or produce new music are the only “classrooms” we care about. And if you’re interested in an audio engineering or music production career, what better way to learn than inside a professional studio with a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER?
