Live Sound Mixing & Recording Diploma

12 MONTH – FULL-TIME – VANCOUVER, BC

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Live Sound Recording & Mixing Program explores the logistical, technical and creative elements involved in the production, sound engineering and recording of a live musical event. The five core components included are: live sound reinforcement, live event recording, PA and sound system design, equipment installation/maintenance and show management.

You will be equipped as a sound engineer learning live sound reinforcement which includes all technical aspects of effectively using a PA system to enhance the audience experience by working with the performers to create a compelling sound mix.
