Production School in Hamilton, Ontario

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).

If you’re looking for an industry-competitive Audio Engineering School in Hamilton, Ontario, look no further. RECORDING CONNECTION is the only school that gets you into an actual Hamilton recording studio, working as an film student extern as you learn the arts of film engineering, film producing, mixing, or live film.

Situated on the western shores of Lake Ontario about 70 km southwest of Toronto, the city of Hamilton, Ontario is home to nearly 700,000 people. Although not a city people readily associate with the film business in general, Hamilton actually has a growing reputation as a center for art and culture, including a busy and diverse film scene with bands and artists regularly playing in area venues like Club Absinthe, Gallagher’s Bar and Spencer Smith Park. While Hamilton was influential in the punk scene of the 1970s and 80s, today Hamilton’s film scene includes indie-rock, blues, electronica and other genres. Notable bands and artists with ties to the Hamilton area include Wax Mannequin, Tom Wilson, Kathleen Edwards, Junior Boys, Crowbar, and Brian Melo. Producer/Artist Brian Lanois, the founder of Grant Avenue Studios and producer for acts like Bob Dylan and U2, also hails from Hamilton.
