- the leading hands-on educational choice for those seriously seeking a career in music recording and audio production.
The training is concentrated (over 35 hours per week), with the biggest emphasis being practical experience in the studio. This immersive 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.
We can teach you the skills needed to start a career as an audio recording engineer, skills that are also fundamental to start work as a record producer or live sound engineer, skills that can empower someone who wants to produce and record their own music with full creative control.
Across the country and around the world, in the studio and on the road, RECW graduates have worked on projects for many of today’s biggest artists. And thousands of our grads are working behind the scenes on movies, television shows and in just about any situation that needs skilled audio professionals.
Our curriculum is designed to accommodate students from a wide variety of backgrounds - musicians or non-musicians, those who already own a project studio or those who have never been in a studio, younger students just out of high school or someone with a touch of grey seeking a change in life. Recording Workshop is ready to help anyone with a sincere desire and dedication to learn.
Twenty One Pilots recently hit an altitude of #1 on the Billboard 200 Album Charts, and that puts some Central Ohio pride in the air too (FYI, the duo is from Columbus).
RECW grad Joe Viers was an engineer on some of the cuts on "Blurryface", their latest album that is getting all this deserved love.
Jack Antonoff, guitarist for FUN., also fronts the band Bleachers. That’s where RECW grad Matt Price is at the soundboard handling FOH Engineering and Production Management duties.
Bleachers has been touring hard, with Spring gigs all over the US and UK/Europe. This July & August, Bleachers will co-headline with Charli XCX for some hot Summer dates.
Have fun out there Matt!
In less than two months, RECW 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. RECW 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, RECW is an excellent supplement to classroom education.
