With hundreds of locations across the U.S., Canada, Australia and theU.K., the Recording Connection has helped thousands of students find their way in to rewarding music industry careers by placing them as working apprentices (externs) in actual recording studios. [+]

With hundreds of locations across the U.S., Canada, Australia and theU.K., the Recording Connection has helped thousands of students find their way in to rewarding music industry careers by placing them as working apprentices (externs) in actual recording studios. Each student is paired with a mentor, a successful working producer/engineer with years of experience and real album credits. We partner with hundreds of music professionals across the globe, many of whom work with Platinum-selling and Grammy-winning artists, to ensure that our students are receiving the best guidance, education and opportunities possible. For students who have graduated from the Recording Connection Bachelor Equivalent Audio Programme (or another audio academy) and aspire to a more advanced level of learning, we are pleased to offer an advanced MASTER’S LEVEL programme to help you get there This Master’s Programme naturally affords more on-one-one instruction with your mentor than our basic programme, and covers the following: Advanced Pro-Tools techniques, including elastic audio, auto-tuning and more In-depth training with plugins, compressors and other effects Bringing a band to the studio for an actual recording session co-produced by you and your mentor Overdubs, mixdown and mastering at the advanced level In-depth instruction on the business side of music production …and more! By the time you have completed this programme, you will have a finished, mastered, professional-quality two track demo in hand, which you will be able to submit proudly to music industry professionals. But here’s a bonus… By maintaining a “B” equivalent average grade during your Master’s Programme, you will qualify to have your DEMO SUBMITTED BY US TO TWO INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS ON YOUR BEHALF—one music producer and one record label executive—AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE! STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT YOUR music industry CAREER: If you’re going to be successful as a record executive, label owner or band manager, you really need to be smart and deliberate regarding your choice of music school. There are many options out there, but many schools charge far too much money and don’t offer any real connection to the music industry itself. By choosing one of these schools, you run the risk of taking on career-crushing amounts of student debt for little or no return on your investment. And for someone trying to make it in the music business, that can halt your career before it ever starts. Don’t be that guy or girl. Don’t make the mistake of spending $25,000, $50,000 or $100,000 for a music school education that offers no real path to your future, and don’t make the even more serious mistake of taking on that kind of debt. Let’s be clear: your key to breaking into the music business doesn’t lie in a classroom with a bunch of other students, nor does it lie in some sort of online program that offers you no real feedback. Your path to success lies in the music industry itself—with the people who are actually DOING the work, who can show you the ropes and help you make your own connections. The Recording Connection offers this opportunity with our unique music business training program. Instead of placing you in an overpriced classroom, we place you as a working apprentice (extern) with a real music industry professional who is doing the job you want to be doing. As you follow a structured course curriculum, you’ll gain lots of real-world experience as you work alongside your mentor, and you’ll learn how to make the connections you need in order to succeed (and trust us—success in this business is ALL about connections). Best of all, you’ll gain this experience, knowledge and insider access for a FRACTION of what other music schools charge, so you can graduate with little or no debt and get on with your career. The music industry is a highly competitive field, and it’s the smart ones, the ones willing to think outside the box, who are the ones who rise to the top. For you, that begins with making choices about your education that will actually help your career without crushing you with debt. If you’re serious about beating out the competition to become a successful record executive or band manager, the Recording Connection is here to help! [-]
