While New Brunswick is the only Canadian province that lists English and French as the official language, music is a language everyone speaks. But if you want to learn how to become an audio engineer or music producer, you may think you have to move to attend university or a trade school to get the education you need for a career in music.
Nothing could be further from the truth. The Recording Connection audio engineering and music production schools in New Brunswick are designed to give you a fully immersive experience close to home. You’ll get one-on-one instruction from your mentor in a real-world setting, seeing how the music you listen to is produced.
In most classroom settings, you have to wait your turn to ask a question of the instructor or sign up for lab time to get your hands on the gear. You’ll do this for a couple of years, get your diploma, and not much else. Our programs are designed to get you in the middle of the action as soon as possible.
You get immediate feedback from your mentor and learn the tricks of the trade during live sessions. Lab time? This is real life! Of course, you’ll still have required readings, homework, and tests to gauge your knowledge of a given subject. But doesn’t it make sense to learn from someone that is actually making music today?
Or someone that you could start working for. Our most successful students are often hired by their mentors after proving they have what it takes to work in the industry or find work at other studios based on their recommendations. Other students take what they’ve learned with Recording Connection and open their own studios!
Opportunities like this may be the most valuable part of the Recording Connection music school in New Brunswick. You’ll be meeting/working with the people that can help get your career started. Every day is a new chance to impress someone you could be working with when you complete your course.
As they say, it isn’t what you know, it’s who you know. The connections and relationships you make during your time with us will go a long way to helping you and your career in the music industry. Learning the gear, how to work with artists, and setting up the studio for a session are absolutely essential, of course. But rubbing elbows with others already in the business is an unmatched advantage of the New Brunswick Recording Connection educational experience–in any language.
