Recording Connection Success Stories


Ex-Recording Connection student Mike Croos has been taking advantage of Recording Connection's 7-year free job placement assistance and it is paying off. Mike has been hired on to do in-house sound for feature films at Granite House Film Productions in Austin. This is Mike's second job in the industry after being hired on as an Assistant Engineer with Sugar Hill studios in Houston.

Bill Taylor of WLAN Radio in Lancaster, Pennsylvania was so pleased with student Jerry Moore that this week he hired Jerry on to do Audio Production full time for the station. Jerry is also doing all the station's digital editing on their ProTools Digital Workstation. "Jerry not only has good technical skills, but is an artist as well--which makes him a great asset to our production team," says Bill.

Omar Salazar has officially started as an independent Producer/Engineer with Audiotron Recording Studios in San Diego, and just finished his first CD with a Latin rock group at the studio. He also represented the group and our studio last month at the EAT'M (Emerging Artists and Talent in Music) Convention.

Todd Stanton, through Recording Connection, has been working as an engineer for the past two years. He just phoned to let us know he has been promoted to Chief Staff Engineer at The Factory in Vancouver, Canada, the studio that just in the past year has recorded Marilyn Manson and David Bowie.

Recording Connection alumnus Billy Flores will be on tour with Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes, doing live sound assist and monitor mixing. This is one of many live tours Billy has been on, including the Rolling Stones a few years back.

Janice Quihano has been hired on to do Audio Post on Pro Tools for The Dungeon Studios, in Miami. "After training side by side with my mentor [and studio owner] Fred, it didn't take long for him to have confidence enough in me to give me the job," said Janice. "Fred is also expanding his second room and there are more opportunites for me here than I ever imagined."

Sasha Pariulus has been hired on to do Audio Post Production for Center City Film Company in Philadelphia, PA. Mentor Damon Alberts and the staff at Center City hired Sasha only five months after she enrolled in the program. Center City is so pleased with the success of the Recording Connection program they have now agreed to take on students in the Film program as well.

"Ken Stelli is assisting Chief Engineer Michael McDonald on sessions and working as an Audio Post Engineer in our film music department," says Robin Whitney, studio manager for Private Island Trax in Hollywood. "Ken is the fourth Recording Connection student to be hired here! He had the motivation and tenacity to succeed from day one of your program. I don't know what screening process you have your potential applicants go through, but keep it up! I thank you once again for helping us as studio owners find quality audio engineers."

Casey Moreno has been hired on full-time at Story Road Recording in San Francisco. "After only three assignments in your Recording Connection course we were very pleased with Casey's work, and we saw tremendous potential for him in this industry. Your program was the "in" he needed to embark on his long education as an Audio Engineer," says owner Anthony Imperial."

"Even though we are a small studio, we couldn't afford to let your student Paul O'Connor move on," says Doug Roysden of Baca Music in Abilene, TX. "I have hired Paul to assist and engineer sessions. I know he learned in a few short months what took me 20 years and tens of thousands of dollars in experience to learn. Paul's musical background has also helped his producing skills for many of the bands that we have been recording. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your program."

Six months ago, Recording Connection student Vinnie Mascola had never even seen the inside of a real recording studio. He has just been offered a position with the legendary Jimi Hendrix studio Electric Lady in New York City, announced Richard Oliver, Chief Engineer.
