FACTS:

To do all this you have to do more than just work hard- you have to be smart. Smart enough not to be taken by an overpriced audio school who promises everything but delivers nothing. Make no mistake – You won’t accomplish these dreams sitting in a classroom, racking up thousands in student debt. It just doesn’t happen that way.

YOUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON THIS:

Don’t make the mistake of picking the wrong audio school to attend, because choosing incorrectly can actually hurt your chances for success, not help them. Your success in this business depends on having the ability to make connections and gain real-world experience. You will gain neither of these by sitting in some vocational school classroom. In fact, all you’ll get at most audio schools is a worthless certificate and a mountain of debt—and no connections or job prospects. That’s the quickest way we can think of to kill your dreams. Sadly this is exactly how it happens every year to THOUSANDS of talented artists and up-and-comers who got duped into paying too much for audio school tuition, only to find that it didn’t actually help their career. So widespread is this student debt problem that Rolling Stone Magazine recently wrote an article about it.

If you’re serious about a career as a rock artist, producer or engineer, you need to take a smarter approach—and that starts with promising yourself NOW that you won’t waste your time in an overcrowded classroom. The training you need, and the connections you need, can ONLY BE FOUND in a real recording studio, working alongside someone with actual music industry experience. And that’s exactly where the Recording Connection can put you.

SO-CALLED “ONLINE” AUDIO SCHOOLS AREN’T THE ANSWER EITHER. YOU NEED FEEDBACK AND INPUT FROM REAL MUSIC INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL IN THIS BUSINESS.

Instead of falling into the “classroom trap,” here’s an alternative: get your education in audio production directly from a solid industry professional, someone who has worked with your favorite bands. Get into a real recording studio and learn one-on-one from the people who are actually making hit records, and get to know the people they know. THIS is the way almost everyone in the industry breaks in. And this is the foundation of our one-of-a-kind training program.

The Recording Connection is a unique apprenticeship program that literally puts you in the heart of the action, in a real studio, for private training with an experienced producer or engineer. You’ll take your classes on-the-job, you’ll gain experience on actual recording sessions, you’ll learn the tricks of the trade from a real professional, and you’ll meet lots of other people in the business who can help you further your career. This is a career opportunity that most audio students only dream of, but with our program, it is absolute reality. We are the ONLY school on the planet that can give you this kind of opportunity—and even better, we do it for a FRACTION of what the other schools charge!

This isn’t an inflated boast, and yes, you read it correctly: the Recording Connection places you INSIDE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY for training as an apprentice with a REAL ROCK PRODUCER OR ENGINEER. And we are the ONLY school in the world that does it.


Can you see the advantage here? While other audio students (read: your competition) are paying expensive tuition and sitting in the classrooms, you’ll be learning the ropes inside a real recording studio alongside the pros. And when those other students get their certificates and start knocking on the doors of the recording studios, you’ll be the one on the other side of the door—because you’ve been “inside” from the start!

MORE ABOUT THE RECORDING CONNECTION

The Recording Connection is a fully accredited apprenticeship training program that is renowned throughout the music industry for its unique mentor-apprentice teaching approach. We are endorsed by some of the biggest names in the business, and we have HUNDREDS of rock producers and engineers teaching for us, because they know our system works. Our mentors have worked with some of the biggest rock artists on the planet, including U2, Bruce Springsteen, Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Green Day, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, The Cure and many, many others. And they are available to teach you their secrets in the comfort and privacy of their own recording studios—no other classmates, no competition, no distractions.

Name one other audio school that can put you there. We bet you can’t.

Do you see the potential here? We don’t say this lightly—if you have the passion and drive to make the most of the opportunity, The Recording Connection can be your ticket to a music industry career, in ways no other school can match.

DON’T FALL INTO THE TRAP: YOU’LL NEVER BREAK INTO THE INDUSTRY SITTING IN A CLASSROOM. YOU ONLY DO IT BY GETTING INTO THE RECORDING STUDIO

NUMBER OF HIT RECORDS PRODUCED IN CLASSROOM PROGRAMS: ZERO
NUMBER OF HIT RECORDS PRODUCED IN REAL RECORDING STUDIOS: NEARLY ALL OF THEM.

Think about this for a moment: who in their right mind would actually believe that sitting in a vocational school classroom will him/her closer to a career as a rock artist, engineer or producer? It just isn’t done that way. The ONLY WAY to do it is to spend time in the studios where rock & roll is actually being recorded and produced. And the only people truly qualified to teach you are the people who make these records. It’s not a revolutionary idea—it’s just common sense. If you just think about it, it should be obvious that the Recording Connection is your smartest pathway to actually having a music industry career.

Our training program is highly flexible, designed to function around your schedule, your interests and your current level of experience. You can apprentice in the studio anywhere between 6 months and 2 years, depending on your availability. And whether you are brand new to audio engineering or have been dabbling in it for years, our program can be tailored to your needs. APPLY FOR FREE and talk with one of our Admissions Representatives to learn more.

In case we haven’t already been clear about this, let’s say it once more: NO OTHER AUDIO SCHOOL MATCHES WHAT WE OFFER. This is not an inflated boast. The top names in rock endorse us because they understand how the music business works, and they know our apprenticeship program is the best way to connect to the business. There is no reason to spend thousands of dollars to sit in a classroom and make no connections when you could spend 75% LESS MONEY and learn on-the-job. Again, it’s just common sense.

But having said all that, you don’t have to take our word for it—do the homework and find out for yourself.
