These programs typically result in a diploma or certificate upon completion but some others takes an internship in any organization where they will be learning the things day by day.

When a Sound Engineering Course is clubbed with internship like learning it is the Diploma Course from Sound Engineering Academy, India.

The primary thing which prepares you for a career in sound engineering is the basic technical know how and lots of practice. Just like every other profession practice makes perfect. In the 1 year diploma course offered by Sound Engineering Academy we first teach students the basic skills and knowledge they need to start and sustain their career in the field of Sound Engineering. Afterwards more knowledge has been imparted to students in area pertaining to advanced techniques in Sound Engineering.

Unlike other institutes which offers sound engineering courses, we have separate wing for teaching Audio Electronics headed by Mr. Sanal Kumar, where in the diploma students will be provided with in-depth technical knowledge about audio electronics like effective use of power, cable combinations etc. The first semester of the course focuses more on learning the basic of Audio Engineering where in more theory sections are being included.

The modules in second semester of the course is designed in such a way that more importance is given to hands-on experience. Many live programs were performed in both within the academy as well as in public venues which were actually projects of students has been performed in the previous batches. These type of projects will provide hands on experience for the students to work with confidence in any type of venues or with any type of equipment.

Tribute

Tribute to Bollywood’s sound wizard Mangesh Desai.(1923 -1985)

Seen here in this picture are Mohammed Rafi, Naushad and Hindi film industry’s legendary re-recordist Mangesh Desai.

Do you know that Sholay was the first Indian film with 22 recorded soundtracks remixed in complete stereophonic sound at a time when 6 or 8 audio tracks were usually used in Hindi films. It was actually challenging for the Sound Recordist to record it in 22 tracks and make who made it is the legendary Mangesh Desai. The recording style and the chanllenges undertaken by the recordist is still a huge achievement among sound recordists during a time when the facilities are very much limited.

Ramesh Sippy, the director of Sholay has said in many interviews about the man who made it possible and moreover Director Satyajith Ray has been a huge fan of this legendary recordist and he once said that ““I can think of very few people I have worked with whom I could describe as ‘indispensable’. If anyone fully deserves that epithet, it is he, a perfectionist and a practical one. And he is as much an artiste as he is a craftsman. It is a pity that l came into contact with him so late in my career with Pratidwandi (’70).”

At one point of time especially during the late 70’s Mangesh Desai has ruled the Bollywood with no competitors. He was then described by the critics as Mentor to the young, terror to the veteran in the bollywood. His theory of organic sound influenced several directors, from Subhash Ghai to Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

Born in Kolhapur, Mangesh was a nephew of music director Vasant Desai. A science graduate of Rajaram College in Kolhapur, with his imprisonment during the Quit India movement, he was unable to secure his degree. His uncle Vasant, permanent staff on Rajkamal Studio payroll was owner V Shantaram’s favoured music director. Helping his nephew, he got him apprenticed under chief recordist Parmar in the technical department headed by Mr. B M Tata. The year was 1947.

Getting involved in all the departments of film-making, the zealous lad owing to his keen interest in electronics and its allied sphere of sound engineering soon became a full-fledged sound recordist.

Live Sound Reinforcement Mini Project with Bakery Junction Music Band

A great moment for the academy as well as for the students of the Diploma in Sound Engineering  when the renowned music band in Trivandrum named Bakery Junction Musiq Band has performed in our academy.
The band has performed as part of live sound reinforcement mini project of the diploma students.  The students has done the planning, setup and execution of the live show as per requirements of the band.

The senior students of the academy has started doing their academic projects in all aspects of Sound Engineering which will provide them hand-on experience on real world projects.

The sound section of above mentioned live show is fully managed by the students without any assistance from the teaching staff of the academy.

The students has been found enthusiastic as they have conducted a live show and whole program was truly entertaining for the other people of the academy as well.
