Learn to use Pro Tools, The Music Industry Standard Digital Audio Workstation! 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. Ultimately, learning Pro Tools will give you the versatility you need in order to be competitive in the music industry, whether you’re trying to get hired at a recording studio, producing your next hit record or opening a studio of your own. A working knowledge of Pro Tools helps qualify you for the following careers: Music Producer Mix Engineer Live Sound Engineer Music Director Sound Designer Sound Designer for Games Film Composer Music Editor ADR Technician Foley Artist Forensic Audio Specialist [-]

We screen our mentors carefully to make sure our students are receiving the highest caliber of training and guidance available, enabling them to connect to the music industry and go on to successful careers of their own. 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.

DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO MAKE THE TOUGH DECISIONS TO HELP YOU GET THERE? 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! [-]

More about the Recording Connection Electronic Music Training Program You dream about it at night. You obsess over it during the day.
