The O2 Academy where this course takes place


The Live Sound Certificate is a six month programme designed to give you real hands-on experience of working in the live music sector. As more artists look to performance rather than record sales for revenue, so there are more jobs for skilled live sound engineers. However, you need gig experience to break into the live music industry and this course delivers exactly that. It is taught at top London venue the O2 Academy, Islington using all their latest equipment. You will also get the opportunity to put your skills into practice at one of London's other famed music venues - a total of five live shows! Pro sound engineers with extensive experience show you the ropes in venues including The Barfly, Islington Academy & The Garage. These are the venues that helped to launch the careers of Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes, Gossip and many others. If you want to become a live sound engineer, put yourself in the right place at the right time and enrol on this programme.
