Washington DC

Audio and Music Production School in Washington, DC

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).

Our nation’s capital is home to politicians and lobbyists and other legislative movers and shakers. There are also plenty of audio engineering schools in the Washington D.C. area to choose from. But how many offer the chance to sit in with an AUDIO ENGINEER OR MUSIC PRODUCTION PROFESSIONAL? Not for an hour or a few days, but for the entire length of the program?

That’s what sets the RECORDING CONNECTION AUDIO ENGINEERING educational experience apart. We set our curriculum based on your needs and what the industry demands. Working with the most current versions of Logic Pro or Ableton Live, how to set up a real-world studio for different acts, and how to make a living doing what you love.


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.

But we also look at the cold, hard facts: a four-year university with name recognition may put you back $100,000! Wouldn’t that money be better spent on the gear you need, getting the car fixed, or paying the rent? The Recording Connection gives you the insider’s look at the recording arts at a fraction of the cost. Our programs – offered online or in person – take less than a year to complete.

Do you want a degree after four years, or start your career in audio engineering or music production from day one? You learn the business, build your brand, and bolster your portfolio all while getting comprehensive education in audio engineering and production.
