Recording Radio and Film Connection


Welcome to the Recording Connection Digital Information Kit.

 

The videos below were created to answer frequently asked questions from parents and students about how our unique audio apprenticeship programs work.  We realize our approach differs from other schools.  We strongly believe our approach — the mentor/apprentice approach — works better, especially if your goal is to get a job in audio.

 

The Recording Connection Apprenticeship ProgramRecording Connection is the only school that provides its students with music industry professionals serving as their private instructors.  If you want to be an audio engineer, we pair you with a working, professional audio engineer.  If you want to be a music producer, we pair you with a professional music producer.  If you want to learn Electronic Music, Hip Hop or be a Live DJ, we pair you with professionals who are making their music in your choice of genre.  No other school comes close to this hands-on, one-on-one approach.  No other school places you in real working situations with private instruction from professionals who make their living doing what you want to do upon graduation.

 

The Recording Connection is a fully accredited member of the BBB with an A+ rating.We feel that if you invest the 20 minutes it will take you to view these videos, you too will see why our approach not only makes sense, but works better than any other school out there.

Tim Palmer endorses the Recording Connection“One of the many reasons that I endorse The Recording Connection Audio Institute is because they put you inside a real recording studio to apprentice under a real producer. I am generally not a supporter of many of the ‘traditional’ audio schools because in my experience they don’t teach the things you really need, and they don’t connect you into the business. The Recording Connection does.”

 

Tim Palmer, producer for U2, The Cure, Pearl Jam

Imagine learning to be an audio engineer or music producer from the guy who produced U2, or Michael Jackson, or Prince, or Pearl Jam, or 50 Cent, or… With The Recording Connection, world famous music producers and audio engineers are your private instructors (mentors). So, who would you rather learn audio engineering or music production from, a music professional who has Gold Records on his wall, or a college professor who has his degree on the wall?

The music business is constantly changing. What was in yesterday is now out. If you develop entrepreneurial skills you will always be able to make a living in the music business. If you just want to show up for work, then you will always be subject to the whims of a capricious business. Our mentor/apprentice method of education places each student in a private apprenticeship with an independent working industry professional, who, by definition, is an entrepreneur–so you get to see and experience what it takes. It’s one of the reasons our students do so well out in the real world.

 

No other media school does this. Advantage: Recording Connection.

Real Parents Speak on our School and Unique Method of Learning:

Tanya Price“There are some things books can’t teach you and that was one of our draws to the Recording Radio Film Connection. Our daughter was able to learn everything and her mentor would go out of his way to take her places, show her things, and educate her. It was a great environment for her to learn independently.”

 

Tanya Price

 

“For a long time now I have been saddened by the debt statistics for new graduates so I was completely on board with the focused training and affordable cost of the program. They work with many successful artists which illustrates the validity of the program and I appreciate its highly rated accreditation status by the Better Business Bureau. I am a nurse and an educator and feel that you have the absolutely correct philosophy when it comes to the impact of real world learning. I have confidence that when Alexa has completed this program, she will have a marketable skill that will provide her with many opportunities and a bright future. A big thank you to the Recording Radio and Film Connection!”

 

Dee Cooper

 

 

“Sometimes timing kicks in, and it is a blessing. Thank you, Recording Radio Film Connection, for all your support, it means a lot.”

Make no mistake, getting into debt kills your dreams. To make it as a music producer, audio engineer, or sound technician, you need to make sure you keep your debt low while you connect yourself into the music business. Only fools mortgage their future by spending borrowed money to go to an expensive trade school or college. The smart students attend The Recording Connection and apprentice themselves inside a real recording studio near where they live.

Next Steps
So what’s next?

Click to play videoClick to play video

You have choices and decisions to make. Choice One (all the other schools) puts you in crowded classrooms and fights over board time on a daily basis. Choice Two (The Recording Connection) hooks you up as an apprentice with a mentor (professional audio engineer, music producer or sound technician) in a real recording studio where it’s just you and your mentor. In other words, quality face time, each and every week. Of course, sometimes you and your mentor will be dealing with clients while you sit in, and eventually run, sessions, but truth be told, that’s a good thing.

 

With us, you are always number one. Advantage: Recording Connection.
