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. The only problem is that if you’re going to be anything more than a “bedroom producer,” you’ve got to up your game—and you can’t really get what you need in some expensive college classroom. 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. What you really need is a chance to learn from a successful industry pro in a real recording studio—someone who has already gone before you and made a successful career as an electronic music producer.

This is exactly what the Recording Connection now provides with our Electronic Music Producing Program. We pair you with a seasoned industry pro as an apprentice (extern) to learn the ropes one-on-one in a real recording studio, so you not only learn to use the equipment, software and tricks of the trade, but you also have the opportunity to make insider connections and gain real studio experience. Whether your focus is on EDM, trance, chillwave or other styles of electronic music, the best place to learn is in the studio where the action is happening. That’s where we put you from day one.
