Abstract:
Getting the correct education to prepare for a career in live audio is a challenging proposition. Which is better—formal education or hands-on experience? The choices being marketed for "education" today seem endless. Manufacturer trainings, school programs, product user certifications, continuing "education" credits, CTS technician exams, smart training, stupid training, "learn to be a genius" seminars …. Who you gonna call? Is it better to just go on the road and "earn while you learn"? Join your peers and some industry veterans for a lively investigation of the options you face when learning about live sound career choices. Hear what works, and what doesn’t. Come and discuss your own experiences … good, bad, or otherwise. This will be an open discussion with all participants. Educators, students, business owners, engineers, and anyone involved in live sound should come and be heard at this unique session.
