Pro Tools was developed by a group of audio engineers out of the growing need for a software program that could replicate the functions of expensive studio equipment in a digital environment. Since its development, this powerful digital audio workstation has come to be the industry standard among audio professionals. These days, you’d be hard pressed to find a modern record release that was not recorded or mixed with Pro Tools, or a professional recording studio that doesn’t use it. Not only is it utilized by major label producers and world-class engineers alike, but it’s also found in home studios across the world, enabling songwriters, composers and musicians to access levels of sound quality once only available at the most expensive recording studios, and at a fraction of the cost. Suffice it to say that if you’re serious about a professional career as a music producer, audio engineer or other industry professional, you’ll need to “speak the language” of pro recording studios, and that means you need to learn Pro Tools inside and out. At the Recording Connection, you will be paired with an experienced engineer who will teach you this powerful software program in one-on-one sessions, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to practice with it and master it, not only in the studio but with your own copy at home, included in your tuition.

Specialized Training in Post Production Audio (Film/TV/Video Games) Is Now Available Through the Recording Connection Are you dreaming of a career in composing for Film, TV and/or Video Games? 
Do you get a rush out of editing music and sound to sync to picture, and want to do it at the pro level? 
Are you passionate about writing lush string arrangements and/or electronic beats and synth passages? 
Do you record your own music at home but want to do it professionally?
 Do you dream of hearing your music on feature films, TV shows, commercials or other media? 
 Do you think you have the talent to make it in the post production world if only you knew the right people? 
Do you have the passion and work ethic that it will take to make it happen? If you answered yes to any/all of these questions, our new Post Production Sound and Music Program may be just the thing for you! Post production encompasses a wide range of tasks, from dialogue recording, ADR and sound editing to foley, surround sound mixing, sound design and writing music to picture. The sound and music that you hear on video games, films and TV embraces a wide range of styles and can include everything from electronic grooves to racing cinematic orchestral passages to specially created sounds for monsters, aliens, magic spells, car crashes and more! All of this sound is created by audio professionals at the post production level, online media and with the right skills and connections, there’s room at this table for you! At the Recording Connection, you’ll receive our exclusive one-on-one mentoring as you learn hands-on, working alongside top professionals in your field of interest. We partner with award-winning sound designers, mixers, and composers who have contributed to films like Black Hawk Down and We Were Soldiers, as well as top video games like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Guild Wars 2. Why One-On-One Training Works Well With Post Production In the post-production niche of the music industry, a special set of skills is required to be successful—more so than just learning principles in a textbook. In fact, most post-production disciplines such as dialogue editing, sound design, mixing, foley and music composition already naturally involve some sort of mentoring. Mastering your craft really requires getting one-on-one instruction and feedback from someone who is already successful in the field. This is why our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach is such a great fit for careers in post production: it is a much more effective way to learn these specialized skills than a classroom setting can provide.

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! [-]

FILM EDITING PROGRAM

The Film Connection
Online & Campus Combined Part time September 2017 USA Muscle Shoals

From a certain point of view, the film editor may be the most misunderstood of all film professionals. Often thought of as just a technician, a good film editor is actually more of an artist. It is the job of the editor to sort through many hours of footage provided by the director, and somehow piece together the shots that will best tell the story the director is trying to tell. A good film editor doesn't just find the best shots: he/she knows how to create artistic sequences that keep the audience guessing and wanting more. Needless to say, film editing can make or break a film, which is why good film editors are highly respected in the industry, and even more in high demand. [+]

Music Producing Course

Recording Connection Audio School
Campus 6 - 6 months September 2017 USA Los Angeles

Music producing is a key part of the music recording process. While the audio engineer focuses mostly on the technical aspects of recording, the music producer focuses more on the artistic process. [+]

Through the mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, the Recording Connection has helped thousands of students by placing them in recording studios throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, Australia and the U.K. To accomplish this, we partner with hundreds of professional producers and engineers across the globe to mentor our students one-on-one. These mentors are carefully screened to ensure they have the proven track record and skills to help our students succeed, and many of our mentors are Grammy-winners with Platinum-selling albums to their credit. Music producing Music producing is a key part of the music recording process. While the audio engineer focuses mostly on the technical aspects of recording, the music producer focuses more on the artistic process. He/she helps shape the sound, enabling the artist to get not only the sound, but also the feel they are aiming for. This requires the music producer to be a technician, musician, coach and artist all in one. It's not a job for everyone, but for the right person, it is a very rewarding career with the potential for some serious income. The problem, of course, is that the industry is very competitive. More students than ever are enrolling in audio schools hoping to have a career as a successful music producer, but only a handful will actually accomplish this goal. Why? Because it takes more than an education to get into this business—it also takes real work experience and connections, which most schools do not provide. At the Recording Connection, we do things differently. From day one, our structured music production course curriculum gets you inside a real recording studio under the personal guidance of a professional music producer. You'll work through a structured course curriculum, but the real training happens on-the-job as you study alongside your mentor. This not only gives you the work experience you need, but also the opportunity to build relationships and make job-producing connections for the future. The Music Producer Program might be for you if: You are passionate about music that sounds and feels good, and believe you have what it takes to help create it. You have a basic understanding of music but need to learn the skills and vocabulary to work with audio engineers in the studio. You have a knack for identifying good talent and want to know to make that talent shine. You want to make or record, hip hop, country, rock, punk or any form of popular or avant-garde music. You have no experience, but you do have an undying passion for music, sound, recording music, playing music, or writing songs. You have some experience (or even lots of experience) in music production but feel you need additional training. Course Features Learn music producing on-the-job in a real recording studio where actual records are being made, not in a classroom. Learn one-on-one from a seasoned music producer with years of proven experience and real album credits. You are the only student in the class. Learn music production as apprentice (extern), not as a mere intern whose job is to run errants. Learn at your own pace, on your own schedule. Work around your day job, if necessary. Stay in your home town, or learn in a city of your choosing. NO RELOCATION NEEDED, because we have locations everywhere. Be paired with a music producer who specializes in the kind of music you want to make, whether it's pop, rock, jazz, R&B, country, metal, etc. Pay an exceptionally low tuition that keeps you from taking on crushing amounts of student debt. THE RECORDING CONNECTION IS KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE INDUSTRY AS THE SCHOOL THAT ACTUALLY BREAKS PEOPLE INTO THE MUSIC BUSINESS. THIS IS WHY WE ARE ENDORSED BY SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN THE INDUSTRY, AND WHY WE HAVE THE STUDENT SUCCESS STORIES TO BACK OUR CLAIMS.

 Are you already making your own beats and want to take it to the next level? 
 Are you are a rapper or free style author of rhymes who wants to learn to set your rhymes to music?
 Do you see yourself as an up-and-coming hip-hop mogul like Common, Dre, Timbaland or Russell Simmons?
 Are you are a serious young man or woman who is ready to work hard to achieve your dreams? If you said yes to any of these questions and are ready to turn your passion into a real career, please read on: Your career as a hip-hop producer or artist starts with making good choices about your education, including AVOIDING STUDENT DEBT. Your career can be ruined before it begins if you get into serious student debt while trying to afford tuition. Besides, you really can't learn the realities of hip-hop production by sitting in a classroom, anyway—the right place to learn it is in a recording studio, and the right person to teach you is a working hip-hop professional. We believe that you shouldn’t have to spend $25,000 or more on an education that puts you in a classroom. That’s why we place you as an apprentice (extern) with a music professional who is making his/her living in the music business. It's also why we keep our tuition low, at only $9400 (which includes all your supplies). Course Features Learn in a real recording studio as an apprentice (extern), not as a student in a classroom with other students. Learn hip-hop production on-the-job—in other words, learn by doing. Learn one-on-one from an established hip-hop professional with real credits and proven skills. Learn at your own pace, according to your own schedule. NO RELOCATION REQUIRED. Learn in the city where you live, or where you want to live. Pay a low tuition that keeps you out of career-crushing debt.

No matter how beautiful the cinematography or impressive the special effects in a film, audiences are drawn in by the struggles of the characters on screen.
