D.C. Music Production and Audio Engineering Schools
D.C. is a happening and exciting city, with a rich and lively musical history. From Jazz to Hip-Hop to Rock N’ Roll, the District has everything an aspiring musician could ask for! At Recording Connection, we strive to give you the tools and experience you need to turn your aspirations into reality. With tailored teaching and one-on-one guidance, we offer in-person guidance within an easy commute. Let our industry experts take you under their wing for a mentorship program that will challenge and propel you towards the career you’ve always wanted.
Learn in a Real Working Studio Where Today’s Top Artist Record
What sets us apart from other audio engineering and music production schools is the one-on-one mentor-student relationship and fully immersive learning environment. Instead of a classroom, you’ll learn from your mentor inside their real-world recording studio; working with the gear used by professionals around the world. See how to prepare for a session, learn the business side of running a studio, and collaborate with artists in real time.
Our D.C. team boasts an impressive list of clienteles. Our studios have been utilized by some of the biggest names in the game—including, Post Malone, Whitney Houston, Dave Mathews Band, and Patti LaBelle!
D.C. Recording Connection courses last from six to nine months, meaning while other students are getting ready for their sophomore year, you may already be working in the music industry. Our audio engineering and music production programs won’t put you into massive debt, either.
Save Money, Save Time and Get Connected
Why take out $50,000 for a student loan (and have to pay back even more with interest) if you don’t have to? Our tuition is just a fraction of what four-year universities, colleges, and trade schools charge. Do you really want to spend that much money to sit in a classroom with 40 other students listening to an instructor? At Recording Connection you learn in the studio, one-on-one with a working professional music producer, surrounded by the equipment and the recording environment.
The best part of our program is the real-world experience you get and the opportunity to meet with the very people that can hire you after you’ve completed the program. Our successful students are either hired by their mentors, find a job at other studios based on their mentor’s recommendation, or develop a roster of clients so they can open their own studio.
That just doesn’t happen in a classroom–but it does happen at the D.C. Recording Connection.

Your Washington, DC MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE
Beyond the Beltway and Capital Hill, there are several different neighborhoods with a variety of cultures. No matter where you’re located in the area, getting into one of our Washington D.C. audio engineering control rooms is closer than you might think.
Years ago, we were one of the first audio engineering schools to offer remote learning in the country. In-person or at home, our mentors will give you the same education. We feel we have the perfect mix of in-person music programs as well as virtual learning to elevate your love of music to making music your life.
You don’t have to go into extreme debt to go to Music Production and Audio Engineering School
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 to 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.
Many of our students are working in the industry right now, even before they finished the program! Others get hired on at the studios they learned, while the most driven graduates start their own studios. The gear is up to date, our mentors are cutting edge, and our programs are comprehensive. But it’s your life – how do you want to spend it?
