Just landed an EDM record deal thanks to hard work, luck and the Recording Connection.

Since 1986, my mentor has been the premier studio for recording, rehearsal, and education for Chicago's south side. Situated just 10 minutes from the main loop, I have been privileged to entertain many illustrious names from Smokey Norful and Albertina Walker to Hall and Oates and Willie Williams. I was fortunate enough to come across the Recording Connection and started studying at my mentors' studio, I graduated just as an opening was available for the General Manager position in my own mentors' studio. My prior management and teaching abilities, combined with recording talents, enabled me to fill the position. Since then, I have headed the great team of engineers (who all are graduates of Recording Connection) bringing a new outlook and focus built on the fine traditions set up by previous recording mentors at this fine recording establishment.

3 months into the program my mentor offered me a full-time staff position at his studio, so I am not only earning my certification through the Recording Connection, but I have now proved myself to my mentor and have earned a full-time position as part of his professional recording team at the studio. Presently I am really enjoying the program, as well as my continued success within the music industry. I am continuing to gain experience and perfecting my beats so I can take the hip-hop world with force.

Awesome Experience

, more than 2 years ago

The fact that I was getting taught doing what I loved at a Grammy award winning studio just blew my mind. I honestly started becoming comfortable with being at the studio by my second lesson there. Everyone at the studio is so cool and understanding which made me feel like I could just be myself without being judged.
