From Creativity to Science and Back Again: Supporting Audio Students Through Active Teaching Approaches

Many students enrolling in audio programs are not fully aware of the importance of science for the audio professional. Typically these students are creative but may have deficiencies in math and science. My goal as an instructor is to minimize the negative associations of these subjects through active lesson plans that stress practical audio situations in a compelling and interactive manner. As a result, students develop confidence through their ability to use science as a tool to both solve audio problems and create expressive art forms. My approaches empower them to succeed in early courses, which facilitate creative applications in later classes. Consequently, students are better prepared for the job force using skills that promote both technical and creative capacities.
