Trenton

Audio and Music Production School in Trenton, New Jersey

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).

Not like any other school, this is Audio Education Updated, Reimagined, and Revitalized. Are You Ready to Take Your Place?

We hit different and here is why: 

New Jersey is home to some of the best colleges and universities in the nation. Of course, you’ll have to race to register to get the classes that you don’t really want to take, fight for the attention of the professor with other students, and spend four years of your life and pay six figures for the opportunity to do so.

But Recording Connection wonders why you’d want to put yourself through all of that. The TRENTON RECORDING CONNECTION AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION SCHOOL allows you to set your schedule, design a curriculum around your needs, and start at almost any time. No more waiting around for the next semester to start.

And instead of a classroom, we put you in the middle of the action: a real-world TRENTON RECORDING STUDIO. You’ll get one-on-one facetime with a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER and learn on gear that the professionals use to make the music you listen to today. And we’re able to offer it at a tenth of the cost of some of those “name” universities and you’ll be done in six to nine months.

We understand that many professions require four, six, and even more years of schooling. But music production is a creative industry, where getting your hands dirty in a professional environment as soon as possible is more beneficial. And that’s what the Recording Connection provides. 

You’ll learn how to bring in clients, how to bring clients in, and even how to pay the bills. You’ll help your mentor with small local acts, regional bands, and perhaps an internationally known superstar. But you’ll also learn about music theory, the physical properties of sound, and how to set up a studio to maximize a session.

Obviously, you aren’t allowed into the operating room your first week of med school. But then again, Dr. Dre didn’t have to go to school for four years to become one of the most successful producers of all time. Ask yourself: What makes more sense?

CLOSE TO HOME OR IN YOUR HOME

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

Another appealing aspect of the Trenton Recording Connection is how close we are to so many Trenton neighborhoods. From Hillcrest to Mill Hill to Villa Park, we offer easy access to our programs. However, what if you want to work with a mentor outside the city limits? Or even across the country?

For more than two decades, we’ve been perfecting our remote learning curriculum. If your computer has enough power, speed, and memory – along with a reliable internet source – you can learn from any mentor in any city. 

While other educational institutions scrambled to give their students access during the pandemic in 2020, we didn’t miss a beat. From the beginning, we understood that life can get in the way sometimes. We just don’t want it to keep you from getting a world-class education.

WHAT WE OFFER

Work With the Stars or Amplify Your Sound

We’ll just come out and say it: When it comes to music, or any creative industry, who you know is just as important as what you know. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to you, but it begs the question: if you’re just starting out, how do you even begin to get your name out there?

That’s probably the most invaluable part of the Recording Connection Audio Engineering and Music Production Program: Opportunity. When you work with your mentor, it’s your chance to show them – and yourself – you belong there. Whether it’s tidying up the office during the time between sessions or stepping up to lead a session yourself, consider this your interview.

But you’re not just here to impress your mentor. How you interact with clients and other music producers during these sessions will go a long way to getting their number in your phone. It could be anticipating when a singer needs another bottle of water or introducing a slight tweak to improve an established beat.

Being responsible. Doing what you say you’re going to do. Putting away the phone when you’re supposed to be working – unless you’re trying to bring in a new client into the studio. These are the actions of someone who wants to be in the business. And, more importantly, wants to stay there.

Our most successful graduates found work in the studios they externed with, were hired by other recording studios, or put in the work to open their own studios. There have been times a student has been hired halfway through the program because they made themselves indispensable.

If you can do that, clients will be asking to put your number in their phones. We give you the opportunities to make a name for yourself. But it’s up to you how your name will be remembered.

Maybe one day you will too. But for now, learning how to switch gears at a moment’s notice and get the etiquette, skills, and knowhow it takes to build that roster of clientsand keep them coming backis a smart place to start.
