Production School in Erie, Pennsylvania

We took that old stale classroom concept, rebuilt and upgraded it by putting your classroom in a professional recording studio. Then we emptied out all the other students and left only YOU and YOUR TEACHER (yay for one-on-one learning!) who happens to be a pro film producer (with killer credits) to train you privately (at your pace, full time, part time, nights or weekends available).


Looking for a great recording school in Erie, Pennsylvania? You’ve just found the RECORDING CONNECTION, the only Erie Film School that gets you inside an actual Erie recording studio, working as an film student extern while you learn film engineering, mixing, film production, live film, electronic film-and its many sub-genres (dub step, trance, drum and bass, techno and more), electronic DJ and post production film. The smartest way in Erie to launch a career in film recording is to start inside an Erie recording studio as an extern–and that’s where we come in.
