Launch Your Career in Audio Engineering
What if you woke up every morning and went to the office—only your “office” was a recording studio? Would it be amazing to have that kind of life? What’s not to love about it? You can have it, if you want it badly enough.
Technician, artist, expert, scientist, and (sometimes) miracle worker: that’s the short job description of an audio engineer. Without the engineer, nothing happens in the recording studio. He/she is responsible for operating all the equipment and gadgets, placing microphones and solving problems to ensure that the musical artist and producer can capture the perfect sound for their recording. It’s a job that is often grueling, sometimes frustrating—but very rewarding.
The Audio Engineering Program of Recording Connection Audio Institute takes place in a real recording studio. From your very first day, you’ll be paired one-on-one with a professional audio engineer to learn firsthand about the ins and outs of recording and engineering. Between 2-7 times per week, you’ll work in the studio as your mentor guides you through our structured course curriculum, outlined for you below.

Audio engineers can regularly make a six-figure annual income in virtually any city on the planet. People who have been properly trained and connected in the field of audio engineering have many different career options. Here are just a few:
- Chief Engineer
- Staff Engineer
- Assistant Engineer
- Studio Owner
In addition, many music producers, mixing and mastering specialists are also audio engineers.
To put it plainly, the best way to get started in an audio career is by learning the ins and outs of a real recording studio as an audio engineer. You MUST know how a real recording studio works if you hope to be successful.
Traditional audio trade schools cannot train you in a real recording studio. You won’t be learning from working audio engineers or music producers, and you won’t make any connections with real clients or other industry pros in those programs. While college recording studios may look nice, they cannot duplicate the same experience as a real-world professional recording studio. That’s what makes the Recording Connection Audio Institute so you unique; in our program, you’ll be working inside a real recording studio from day one.

QUESTION: Which is more preferable: to learn audio on a college campus, or in a real recording studio?
ANSWER: Hands down—the best place to learn audio engineering is in an actual studio, from an industry professional who has been recording music for 10 – 30 years.
The truth is, try as they might, traditional colleges and trade schools are simply unable to duplicate the learning experience you will find in a real recording studio. They are just not equipped for it.

And we give all this knowledge, experience and wisdom to you for a fraction of the cost of traditional schools.
