More about the Recording Connection Electronic Music Training Program You dream about it at night. You obsess over it during the day. You know you have the natural talent, and you believe you have what it takes to make it in the industry as an electronic music producer.

You need studio experience, you need guidance from a mentor, and you need connections. Lots of connections. You need to get your foot in the door. Making the right choice for your education can be difficult, especially when it seems like so few schools offer what you’re looking for, and they charge too much for the privilege, anyhow.
