A Practical Beginners Guide To The Basics Of Live Sound
What you'll learn
- How to do live sound at a basic level, intended for small gigs, events and churches
- Not specifically as the course is primarily aimed at complete beginners, but being technically minded and/or a musician is an advantage
This course provides practical lessons in the basics of live sound engineering. Whether you are a solo musician, in a band, or need to do sound for live events (such as seminars, meetings or in church), this course is intended to give you a starting point for doing live sound, at a basic level, should the need arise.
I'm teaching this course on an analogue mixing desk, but the underlying principles could also be applied in operating a digital mixing desk.
Who this course is for:
- Beginners who want/need to be able to do live sound (for their own gigs, events or church) but don't know where to start. Also, those who have been thrown in at the deep end with live sound, but have had little training or experience.
Hi, I'm Rob and I'm a multi-instumentalist and music educator. I also have a background in tech.
I have many years experience playing keyboards/piano and guitar, along with other instruments for good measure. This has included playing in bands, composing, recording and also teaching one-to-one instrumental lessons (on keyboards and electric guitar). It is the teaching that I enjoy the most, as I am able to impart my experience and love of music to others.
As I have a background in tech, I'm also able to cover topics such as live sound engineering, mindful of what is required from both a sound engineer and musician's perspective.
