The total number of students who prefer to learn / specialize in Live Sound Engineering is more than those who choose other major areas of audio engineering.
Our diploma program is designed in such a way that in the second semester students can opt 1 out of 4 major areas which the academy covers like audio for film, music production, broadcasting and Live Sound.
Based on their preferred area of study, they will be provided with opportunity to attended expert sessions handled by masters in their field.
A week back there was an expert session by Chandrasekhar on music production and this week a 4 days session on Live Sound System Setup was organized in the academy which concluded today with live practical session.

The four days session which was organized in the academy has covered theoretical aspects for the first 2 days and practical oriented sessions for the remaining hours.
What did you find peculiar about SEA?
When asked him, what did you find peculiar about Sound Engineering Academy?
Couple of things he pointed out was,
It is a fact that many institutes who are offering audio engineering courses especially in India are still using outdated equipments and age old syllabus to train the students.
Talking about SEA, the academy has got a novel approach towards audio engineering training and the main peculiarities being,
following a unique training methodology,
practical oriented syllabus and
huge line up of sophisticated audio equipments make the institute top-notch in the country.
Your thought on students of the Academy
On asking about the students, he shared the view that students are quite eager to learn new things and almost everyone is well aware of the basics of audio engineering. Apart from that, the students were keen on arranging practical sessions for them and are co-operative in working as a team.
Experience what is learned during the sesssion.
The 5 days expert session has covered advanced topics like Live Sound System Tuning, System Setup and System Measurement.
For those who are following our blog will be aware that we have conducted a world music day celebration in the academy and it was a coincidence that the world music day celebrations fell in between the 5 day session, ie on 21st of June. The event has tuned out to be a great opportunity for Vinay to shed more light on live sound reinforcement with the students on a real world scenario and students got time to test what they have learned.
Like every other sessions by the visiting faculties, this session has also concluded with a live Practical session on the final day in the campus.
Being fully monitored by the expert faculty, the final Day practical session was particularly useful for the students get hands-on experience with regard to the newly acquired skills and it has emerged as a significant factor in clearly understanding the concepts presented during the 4 day long seminar.
Sound Engineering Academy is thankful to Vinay Prabhakar, who accepted our invitation and spending valuable time in explaining the concepts, clearing the doubts raised by the students in an interactive manner and eventually developing lot of interest among the students with regard to Live Sound Reinforcement.
