Bachelors 2017 in Edinburgh United Kingdom. With hundreds of locations across the U.S., Canada, Australia and theU.K., the Recording Connection has helped thousands of students find their way in to rewarding music industry careers by placing them as working apprentices (externs) in actual recording studios. Each student is paired with a mentor, a successful working producer/engineer with years of experience and real album credits. We partner with hundreds of music professionals across the globe, many of whom work with Platinum-selling and Grammy-winning artists, to ensure that our students are receiving the best guidance, education and opportunities possible. Our Bachelor’s Equivalent Offering Regardless of your musical preferences or passions—whether Electronic Music, Rock and Roll, Hip Hop, R&B, or Folk —our Bachelor’s Equivalent Audio Programme is tailor-made to get you started in the field of Audio Engineering and Music Production. We do this by offering a comprehensive one-on-one education during which you will: Sit in on Real Recording, Mixing and Mastering Sessions Learn Pro Tools with hands-on Training, Learning one-on-one from your Mentor Complete 10 to 20 Hours of Homework Weekly Make Connections with Music Industry Professionals Log Hours as a Hands-on Trainee Receive Hands-On Instruction in Analogue Recording Learn About Signal Processing Receive Private Instruction in Guitar and Drum Microphone Usage/Placement Receive Instruction in Sync and Automation Post-Production Receive One-on-one Instruction in Audio Processing Receive One-on-One Instruction in Pro Tools File Management and Templates Receive Hands-On Instruction in Digital Recording Receive Hands-On Instruction on How to Operate a Small to Medium Sized Business Receive Private Tutoring in Microphone Design, Placement and Usage Receive Private Instruction in Patch Bay and Signal Flow Receive Private Instruction in Mix Downs Receive Private Instruction in Compressors, Gates, Limiters, and Clippers Receive Hands-On Instruction about Amplifiers and Consoles Receive Private Tutoring in Studio Design, Monitoring, and Speakers Receive One-on-One Instruction in Sampling, Sequencing and Editing Receive Private Instruction in MIDI Electronic Music Learn One-on-One about Reverb, Delay, Chorus, and Flange Learn One-on-One about Surround Mixing and Output Media Receive Private Instruction in Plugins and other software (e.g., Reason, Ableton, Logic) 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! [-]
