Hi! My name's Sarah and I've been a singer and songwriter in NYC for 11 years and for the past 4 years I have owned my own rehearsal studio in Midtown Manhattan. I learned about live sound while owning my studio and loved the confidence that it gave me. When I rehearse my songs, I understand what the technical limitations are, when I go to my gigs, I know how to clearly communicate with the sound engineer, when I'm hiring producers, I can suss out whether they know there stuff. I created this workshop to give you a firm foundation in live sound in a supportive, fun, small group environment. Below you will find the details and the link to reserve a spot. I look forward to meeting you! -Sarah Live Sound Workshop for Beginners Overview: You will leave this workshop and be able to walk into your next gig and know exactly what to say to the person running sound. We will focus on very practical knowledge that you can apply right away. What is "Live Sound?" "Live Sound" is a term used to describe the sound techniques utilized in a live venue when there's an audience in attendance. This expertise is different than what's called "recorded sound," which is the way music is recorded in the recording studio. Most classes and workshops exclusively focus on "recorded sound" techniques and can leave performers without vital skills when they go on stage to perform live. If you've ever taken ProTools classes or recording classes, you are still a beginner in live sound techniques and are in need of this workshop. Is this Workshop for You? This interactive live sound workshop is for you if you are doing gigs (or looking to do gigs) and want to know how to communicate clearly and professionally with the live sound engineers in NYC venues. This workshop is also for you if you are an artist manager, or someone with a background in recorded sound looking to increase your knowledge in the live sound world. After completing the workshop you will be able to do basic sound for yourself if you encounter the NYC venues that require this skill. (Surprisingly, there are some great ones that have the bartender point you to the mixer and leave you to do it all yourself!) Who This Workshop is Not For This is not for anyone who already has extensive live sound experience. This is a beginner level workshop. Skills You'll Learn • Mic Stand Setup Tricks • Pro Cable Wrapping Techniques • EQ, Compression, and Reverb • Basics of the Mixer (Also known as a "Sound Board" or "Desk") • What Ringing Out the Room Means and Much More Questions You'll Be Able to Answer • Why can't I hear myself? • Why did I just hear that horrible feedback? • What are the different pieces of gear all around the sound person?
