In the Advanced Show Production Systems course, sound-reinforcement concepts and technical skills related to live-event production are fine-tuned. This course also opens new career paths to students by exposing them to opportunities in audio-system design, system gain structure, networking, and installation. Students will learn in-ear monitor system setup and mixing techniques and develop listening skills for engineering. Students will then apply these skills in labs by mixing live multitrack recordings made by previous program students. Students will also interact with performers during live performance labs scheduled throughout the course.
