About Recording Radio and Film Connection

The Recording Radio and Film Connection has been utilizing the mentor-apprentice (extern) training approach to help our students launch careers in broadcasting, recording and film for over 30 years. During that time, we’ve made a lot of connections, and we’ve helped our students make a lot of connections. And as you already know, connections are KEY to breaking into these industries.

We pride ourselves on offering a singular educational experience: the chance to learn one-on-one from a working industry professional. Our unique blend of mentor/apprentice education and real world learning has helped many people find the career of their dreams.
