Wichita

Audio and Music Production School in Wichita, Kansas

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).

We hit different and here is why: 

More than 30 years ago, Recording Connection saw a way to revolutionize AUDIO ENGINEERING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION SCHOOLS. Certainly, many industries require a few years in the classroom before finally making your way to the work setting. We just don’t think the music industry is one of them. 

We feel the smartest way to launch a career in audio in the Wichita area is by externing in a local recording studio–and that’s what we offer. We put you in the middle of a real-world WICHITA, KS, RECORDING STUDIO during the first week of the RECORDING CONNECTION AUDIO ENGINEER AND MUSIC PRODUCTION SCHOOL. 

You’ll have the undivided attention of your mentor, a PRO MUSIC PRODUCER, who gives you the inside scoop on what it takes to make music in today’s world in a one-on-one setting. Instead of perusing a class list, you’ll team up with your mentor and Academic Facilitator to design a curriculum based on what you want to learn.

We won’t make you quit your day job, either. Making music is a 24/7 endeavor, especially when a paying client wants to work at 10 p.m. on Tuesday. Can’t make it to the studio most nights until after five or six? Chances are our mentors will be working then, too. Why uproot your entire life if you don’t have to?

And why spend more time or money if you don’t have to? Our programs last six to nine months and cost just a fraction of traditional four-year universities. There are some similarities of course. You’ll still have quizzes, exams, and required readings – we are an educational facility after all. 

But instead of having to sign up for lab time to get your hands on the gear, you do nothing but spend time in the studio. Learning how to set mics, working with digital audio workstations, setting up consoles, and observing how to handle a wide array of personalities on the other side of the glass.

That’s what the Wichita Recording Connection program offers. In four years you could have a university diploma or a few years of professional experience, building your brand, portfolio, and client list. What makes more sense to you?

CLOSE TO HOME OR IN YOUR HOME

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

Although not typically mentioned in music industry circles, the Wichita-Hutchinson area is home to a busy music scene, with touring acts regularly appearing in venues and local bands of various genres playing nightly in any of a long list of bars and other live venues in the area. The Wichita-Hutchinson area is home to several recording studios that keep busy with the needs of the music community here.

If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer, or music producer, why not apply to the one that puts you in a real recording studio from day one? From Yoder to Briarwood, Mt. Hope to Haven, Old Town to New Salem, our Wichita location provides a local option to learn from a pro.

But what if family commitments, transportation issues, and other obstacles (Covid-19 anyone?) prevent you from making it into the studio? Recording Connection has perfected a remote learning option that allows you to stay home and get a world-class education. On the flip side, we have more than 250 locations across the country. If you’re interested in learning from a New York, Miami, or L.A. mentor, we can make that happen, based on availability.

WHAT OUR RECORDING AND MUSIC PRODUCTION SCHOOL OFFERS

Work with the Stars or Amplify Your Sound

One of the not-so-secret secrets of the music industry is who you know is oftentimes just as important as what you know. Recording Connection programs are designed to give you a solid base of audio engineering or music production. Having a technical foundation is important of course, but how you handle yourself in the studio is just as critical.

Because no matter who walks through that studio door, they very well could be looking for an engineer or producer. What kind of first impression are you going to make? How will you make the most of these opportunities? And can you create your own opportunities by bringing work to the studio?

Look at your time in the studio as an ongoing interview process. Do you pick up new processes quickly? Are your questions well-reasoned and do you take the answers to heart? Are you a self-starter, able to manage your time, and have confidence in your insights? Ask your mentor what they and other studios are looking for and act accordingly.

Our most successful students show their mentors they take the programs seriously, act responsibly, and work with a professional demeanor. They have been hired by the recording studios where they externed, have been hired by other studios based on word of mouth and an impressive portfolio. A few have even been hired on the spot by touring acts.

These connections just aren’t available in most university settings – you have to leave those hallowed halls to get your name in circulation. With Recording Connection, we bring those connections to you. As always, the choice is yours – but what makes more sense?
