Learning to record, mix and produce music at a professional level is the goal of training at Recording Workshop.
Recording Workshop teaches the skills needed to start a career as an audio recording engineer, music producer or live sound engineer. These same skills are also vital for someone who wants to create their own music with full artistic control over how things will sound.
Our training is designed to accommodate students from a wide variety of backgrounds - musician or non-musician, those who already own a project studio or those who have never been in a studio before. Recording Workshop is ready to elevate the goals of anyone with a sincere passion to learn the recording arts.
Our approach is very immersive and hands-on. Students spend more than 7 hours per day, 5 days per week actively learning creative studio skills.
This concentrated approach lets the entire curriculum be completed in less than two months. It is time-tested and proven to be a superior way to prepare new music production professionals.
Since 1977, students from over 70 countries have traveled to our campus to participate in the unique programs we offer.
Our studios are equipped with the latest digital production technologies and the best of "old-school" analog. Our staff has deep expertise in guiding students in the engineering and production of all popular genres of music.
Across the country and around the world, Recording Workshop graduates have worked with many of today’s biggest artists. Thousands of our grads are working behind the scenes on movies, television shows and in just about any situation that needs skilled audio professionals.

Recording Workshop Grad News
Kyle (aka SuperDuperKyle) recently launched his LIGHTSPEED World Tour and it's awesome to see Recording Workshop grad Neal Duffy handling the FOH mix.
As the tour swung through Ohio, Neal thoughtfully reached out to the crew here at Recording Workshop - much appreciated.
Neal's mixing skills have been entrusted by many others on tour over the past few years including Neon Trees, CeeLo Green, and Santigold.
A Star is Born with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper is getting good acclaim, and Recording Workshop grad John Guentner's foley mixing skills can be heard throughout.
one of the busiest foley mixers in the biz. American Woman is one of several TV shows that he currently brings his talents to. Andi Mack, Brockmire, and The Kominsky Method are a few of the others.
Recording Workshop grad Nick Monson has once again had his production & song writing talents hit a wide audience. His work with British vocalist Anne-Marie can be heard on her album Speak Your Mind.
Anne-Marie is touring the US right now, jumping between sold-out solo dates, and as an opening act for Ed Sheeran.
Nick's earlier studio work with Lady Gaga got lots of acclaim with him co-writing/producing about half the songs on her ArtPop album including the hit Applause.
Producer Jacquire King has opened LBT, his new studio built true to his personal vision of music creation. This Recording Workshop grad has had wonderful success as an engineer, mixer and producer. His artist discography includes albums with Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Dawes, Of Monsters and Men.. to name just a few.
LBT will let Jacquire house all the eclectic equipment and instruments he's collected over the years and have them at his fingertips for creative use. No doubt incredible new music will be emerging from LBT for years to come!
In less than two months, Recording Workshop students get more studio experience than students attending other schools that are much longer and much more expensive.
Our programs start from square one, yet for students with background, our training is challenging and beneficial. Recording Workshop is a very efficient way to fill in gaps for the professional who is self-taught.
Convenient, low-cost housing is available on campus within a short walk of all classes.
College credit is available. For students working towards a degree, Recording Workshop is an excellent supplement to classroom education.
