The Changing Audio Professional
Melvyn Toms, JAMES (Joint Audio Media Education Services)
Samantha Bennett, University of Westminster - UK
Dennis Weinreich, APRS/UK Screen/JAMES
Over the previous 30 years, the technical and operational demands placed upon working professionals in the audio industry have grown exponentially. Equally over this period the opportunities to learn and gain the necessary experience to become accomplished by sitting and working alongside established practitioners has fallen. To a large extent, public and private education has taken on this role but has it been successful?
Audio production and technology courses attract a large intake of industry hopefuls but will they be “sitting and working alongside established practitioners” and how can they be assured their course meets industry requirements?
