Audio Engineering, Video and Music Production Programs

The One-On-One Mentor-Ship Program for Audio Engineering, Video and Music Production, and Business

Recording Studio

We have 3 programs that build upon each other. Each program is an additional 8 months. All 3 programs together last 24 month.

The Recording Conservatory is the premier Audio Engineering, Video and Music Production, and Business School. Because of our one-on-one mentor-ship approach, The Recording Conservatory is where truly passionate students are coming to jump start a vibrant career in the music and video industries. Our proven curriculum is taught exclusively by real working industry professionals in real working studios. TRCoA is, in the truest sense of the phrase, a trade school. Our main goal is to hand craft you into a working audio engineer, music producer, studio owner, video producer, record label, or music and video business entrepreneur. At TRCoA, not only will you create professional, You Tube-ready video and music productions, but we'll set you on a career path to creating your own business. Not only will you learn to be an Avid, Pro Tools and Premiere Pro recording, editing, mixing, and mastering expert, but you will learn how to initiate and maintain the business relationships necessary to be successful. We take special care to create close relationships with each student. We listen to your goals and strive to help you reach them.

The Beginning Audio Engineering Program is approximately 8 months long and is a comprehensive program that is designed to teach you everything you would need to know to function as an audio engineer in a professional recording studio. You will meet one-on-one with different instructors four hours each week to cover course subjects. Additionally you will do two assists a week for the first four weeks with other professional and student engineers in our state of the art facilities. At week five you will start your own projects. You will do as many as six projects in the beginning class alone. Each one of these projects will cover seeking the artists you would like to work with, booking them on the studio calendar, recording, editing, overdubbing, mixing, and mastering. Unlike many other schools where projects are completed in groups, you will own your projects from bringing in the artist to mastering the final mix. By the time you get out of the beginning program you will know how to and will have done the entire recording process as many as six times.
The Recording Arts Program is approximately 16 months long and includes the Beginning Audio Engineering Program. The 8 months beyond Beginning Audio Engineering are designed to take you directly on a video and music production career path. Working in the video and music industries is very reputation oriented. Often it is difficult for beginning audio engineers and music producers, even if they are accomplished, to gain a foothold. If they aren't working then they aren't gaining a reputation and if they don't have a reputation as an audio engineer or music producer then they aren't getting work. The second 8 months are a direct answer to that problem. During the program you will be seeking out what will be potential clients, bringing them into the studio, and doing single full production songs with them. In the Advanced Program you will do as many as 10 music production projects like this (10 single songs with the intent to create a client). Through this process you will be learning how to find and interact with potential clients, how to build client relationships, and a refinement of the music production skills you started in the beginning program. In tandem to your music production projects you will be attending a weekly music business, beat composition, marketing and design, and Pro Tools lesson. The business and marketing lessons will cover everything from designing your own business card and website to understanding QuickBooks, music law, and video and music publishing. The beat composition lessons combine traditional songwriting techniques with the use of the most current beat production software. You will learn how to compose, arrange, and write charts on today's most powerful and exciting songwriting software. There are very few students that make it all the way through the Recording Arts Program that don't create at least a client or two. So, if you continue the path we start you on during the program, you will have a solid client base in the coming years.
The Recording and Video Arts Program is approximately 24 months long and includes the Recording Arts Program. The 8 months beyond The Recording Arts Program are designed to teach you every aspect of music video production and internet media development. More information coming soon!
