The Recording Connection is one of the few mentor apprentice programs available in the media arts. This form of education allows the student to learn in private, one-on-one sessions from a working, professional audio engineer or music producer. The advantages of this form of education are several fold: students can learn at their own pace; students can learn what interests them most; and most importantly, students learn hands-on, career knowledge rather than text book information.
Mentor Apprentice learning also allows students to learn more in less time. The average course at the Recording Connection lasts for six months due to this accelerated learning process. However, if you are the type of student who likes to sit in the back of the classroom and not participate in discussions, this form of education might not be right for you. Instead, it is geared for self-starters for it is the motivated student who will thrive in this environment.
The Recording Connection Audio Engineering Program and Music Producing program are both based around a structured course curriculum that is bolstered by weekly sessions in the mentor’s actual recording studio. When it comes time to apply for a job in the music business, the experience of having worked in a real recording studio trumps a degree every time.
One other unique feature of the Recording Connection is location. No longer are you bound to attend school where they have their campus. Since the Recording Connection “campus” is a real recording studio, and they have a network of hundreds and hundreds of mentors to choose from, where you go to school is entirely up to you. Don’t have funds to relocate? Need to keep your existing job while attending school? No problem, the Recording Connection can hook you up with a mentor in the area you live. Want to pursue a career in the big time? Again, no problem, the Recording Connection has dozens of world famous recording engineers and music producers in New York, Los Angeles and London.
