We will learn real-world sound skills and wander through some “big picture” theory without getting too technical. Much of what makes good sound is really basic: beat back hums and buzzes, set up your stage well, monitor levels in the right places, have good communication with the stage. Class tips and hands-on experience will come in handy at festivals, coffee houses, and home recording.

Class members will be asked to crew on stage and be at the mixer for the final student concerts.
