Britannia Row offers live sound technology training28 February 2017
Britannia Row Productions Training is running its core 12 week Live Sound Technology Course (LSTC) from early April.
The 2017 course will primarily be delivered from South Thames College in Wandsworth with some sessions being held at Britannia Row’s main headquarters in Twickenham and some on site at Britannia Row shows. The tutors will be Britannia Row staff abd freelance engineers and technicians.
Britannia Row Productions Training’s M.D., Mike Lowe says: “Unfortunately we were unable to run the 12 week full-time Live Sound Technology Course in 2016 due to lack of appropriate accommodation. We have come to an arrangement with South Thames College, our partners for our three year BSc Hons Degree Course in Live Sound Production, to predominately use their Wandsworth Campus to run LSTC this spring. The facilities at Wandsworth Campus include a dedicated training room for the course, lecture theatres, a theatre, a sports hall and several recording studios and rehearsal spaces. The college runs several courses for musicians and vocalist so there is no shortage of live music for our LSTC students to work with.”
Lowe adds that that over 80 students from the 2013 to 2015 LSTC courses are now earning their living as live sound professionals around the world with sound companies, venues and as freelancers. “Joe Standon, for example, who was on a 2014 Live Sound Technology Course is already the front of house sound engineer for both Limp Bizkit and Rag ‘n Bone Man and touring the world,” he says.
The course is suited to those wanting start a career in live sound, for those already working who wish to enhance their knowledge and skills or people working in areas, such as audio equipment manufacturing, who would benefit from a greater understanding of all aspects of live sound.
