Recording Connection Founders Give Away Full-Ride Recording Connection Scholarship
The Connectors (Jimi Petulla and Brian Kraft) are giving away media/arts school scholarship. There latest give away is a full-ride scholarship to the Recording Connection to be awarded Nov 1st.
For nearly thirty years, Jimi Petulla and Brian Kraft have been at the forefront of changing the way people get the training and education they need to launch their careers in the recording industry as music producers, audio engineers, and in various facets of the recording arts.
Their one-of-a-kind school now boasts locations throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. But rather than resting on their laurels, the duo is expanding their reach by awarding a full-ride scholarship in the recording arts to someone who genuinely deserves a chance at getting that future they’ve been dreaming of yet who lacks the financial means to get the training they need to make it.
At the core of Recording Connection’s innovative, licensed and accredited programs is the mentor-guided approach. Having witnesses just how transformative and life-changing this mode of instruction can be, Petulla and Kraft have become champions of the method and believe in its ability to change the way people get the skills and knowhow they really need to succeed in the world.
Speaking of today’s traditional college system, Petulla is quite critical, saying:
"In my view, schools have become money making endeavors where the student often gets hurt. My system cuts out all the junk -- the bureaucracy, the Federal Aid, the $50,000 tuitions. What I’m doing is breaking the chain of impersonal education.
Recording Connection’s affordable, licensed and accredited six-month programs match apprentices with professional audio engineers and music producers for direct, one-on-one, hands-on training that takes place, not in a classroom but on-site in a real, bona fide recording studio. This makes for a learning experience that goes well beyond anything one could find in a textbook. Many, many of the most successful people in the world today had mentors who could show them the ropes of how it’s really done. Given what we now know about “patterning” and various learning styles, it is indeed interesting that the norm in education is still the talk-down approach"
However, that wasn’t always the case. In fact, the mentor-guided approach employed by Recording Connection actually hearkens back to the age-old practice of apprenticeship wherein a seasoned craftsman took an apprentice and taught them their practice in a direct, hands-on manner. Turns out, this in-depth approach is perfect when it comes to learning the many facets of studio work. Such practical, immersive training is highly effective and much can be learned in a relatively short period of time. Their intense 20 lesson program takes just six months to complete while those at traditional colleges and trade schools range from one year to as long as five.
So who will it be? One lucky scholarship winner will receive six-months of mentor-guided training in the recording arts completely free of charge. Applicants must have the drive, passion and work ethic it takes to succeed but lack the financial means it takes to fund their education. Persons of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to apply by answering questions posted at www.theConnectors.tv. See who you think deserves this once in a lifetime opportunity and cast your vote!
Contest ends November 1st, 2012. Winners will be announced online December 1st, 2012.
