A Basic Overview of the Recording Connection Audio Recording and Music Producing School Alternative



No Experience Necessary!

We have fairly high acceptance standards at The Recording Connection Recording Academy. Since we train our students in real studios, we must select our students according to employment viability standards, rather than typical school admissions criteria.


While most audio schools will accept anyone with the ability to pay (or to get financing), Recording Connection does not operate in this manner—nor could we, in good conscience. We first send all our prospective students to a free, open-house interview with the prospective mentor in the recording studio where learning is to take place. Only when the mentor approves the student as his/her apprentice will that student gain final acceptance into the Recording Connection.

We don’t require our students to have any prior recording or music experience, but we do look for something more from our students than just the ability to pay. Simply put, we’re looking for people who are hardworking, passionate, motivated and reliable—the same basic qualifications needed to land a good job, except without the experience requirement. If you have the passion, commitment and work ethic we’re looking for, then we will train you to become a Music Producer or Audio Engineer.

What Does It Cost?

For Bachelor-level programs, £7,433 if you pay in full, or £8,170 if you finance.

Our Masters-level programs start at £6,826.

Recording Connection tuition includes all curriculum and training materials, placement research, and mentor compensation.
