As you all know we have completed 14 successful years in the field of Sound Engineering Training and admission is open for our 28th Batch of 1-year Diploma in Sound Engineering and Sound Recording and today we are talking about why Sound Engineering Professionals recommends SEA.
Recently, as part of our monthly student’s feedback sessions, a question was asked by the officials to get an idea about how they came to know about the academy.
As about 70 percent of students have cited online media and traditional media as their source, the rest of the students have pointed out that they were recommended by professional sound engineers.
It is quite obvious that those professional sound engineers who are SEA Aluminis recommend our academy but the thing that astonished us was that those audio professionals who have had no connections whatsoever in any manner with the academy recommend our diploma course to those who are planning to develop a strong career in the field.
As per information from the admission section, those who are applying for the course as recommended by the professionals usually pass our selection process and are more passionate about their studies.
There are critics out there who might have a different perspective towards what is being said above. It is true that a large no of professional sound engineers recommends SEA courses especially to those who are passionate to become sound engineers.
Why are we talking about this?
When looked at this years admission pattern, it is been noticed that about 30% of total students who have already selected for the next batch are recommended by various professional sound engineers. Another interesting fact is that almost all of these students were being accompanied by these Sound Engineers at the time of application submission as well as during the admission process
Why are you recommending SEA and what did you find so special about us?
During this years admission process we had raised the above question with the sound engineers who recommended our courses.
These are the answers which we received, which were quite immediate and straightforward and we are delighted to share their views with you
SEA doesn’t make false promises and delivers what is being promised !!!
SEA is Passionate about imparting quality Sound Engineering Education and only those students who are passionate enough for the field will only be selected for the 1-year Diploma Course. A person’s educational background and his ability to pay the course fees is a factor that is being considered at a later point in time.
The Admission process and teaching methodology are quite unique.
Students who are currently studying in the academy and those who have got selected for the course recently are well aware of this fact. Because of this unique process, only 20% of students who are applying for the course are getting selected.
Parents. No need to Worry
This is a smoke-free and alcohol-free campus.
There is a common talk among the public that those individuals who join a course related art subjects have a chance of getting addicted to alcohol and drugs. Interestingly with regard to students who are joining our college are going through a unique selection process and those with behavioural and personality issues are not provided admission. In fact, those who have got any type of affinity towards addictive substances will not be allowed to continue with the studies and will be debarred with immediate effect. You can get in touch to with any SEA Alumni and ask about this and what stringent actions are taken against those who are deliberately breaking the academy’s rules and regulations.
We are taking special care in their personality development and takes measures to correct any behavioural issues. Academy is currently having an in-house councillor who closely watches the students and guide them to lead a better life.
Freedom to learn and to be creative
Unlike other institutes which offers undesirable freedom to their students, SEA is quite disciplined in its day to day operations and strict in making students learn what they are supposed to. On the other hand, SEA is quite liberal in conducting expert sessions both within the syllabus and outside the syllabus to help individuals to be much more professional.
Students are having sports day every year, celebrate all major festivals in the academy like Onam, Navrathri and Christmas, organize events to celebrate world music days, students got music club where they are free to compose and perform their own songs etc.
Not affiliated with any university or studio or any media organisation.
No Affiliation? It is a matter that tends to raise the eyebrows of many. But in a way, it is a boon to the students. SEA has its own way of doing things and the sound engineering industry has recognized this unique approach.
As the academy is not having any affiliation no external factors are affecting the learning process of the students. Students can apply for any job in the field irrespective of the company or the organisation.
The certificate is valid in the industry and accepted worldwide Being SEA certified is a passport to a better career and means an individual is a qualified Sound Engineer.
This has definitely astonished us and is a reward for our efforts
Last week one Sound Engineer from Kerala who has been in the industry for more than 8 years has came to the academy with his two cousin brothers for submitting the application, when we asked the same question with him he replied that “I applied for the course in the year 2009 got selected and i was unable to study in SEA due to some personal reasons and when my cousin brothers shared their ambition of becoming Sound Engineers, my first and only choice was Sound Engineering Academy“. He also pointed out that if he were able to join the course during that time then his sound engineering career would have been taken a different path and he might have grasped more technical things in just 1 year which he gained in the past 8 years.
This incident itself reveals that those who are working in the field share positive reviews about the
Listed below are some other advantages which many sound engineers have pointed out
Very few sound engineering institutes in India is offering an exclusive 1-year course in which even those students with little to no information about the field can join and become a world-class professional.
Completed 14 Years in the audio engineering training field and created more than 1300 Professional Sound Engineers
The course covers all 4 major fields like Music Production / Audio for Film / Live Sound Reinforcement / Broadcasting it is better to do a course that covers all major aspects.
Audio Electronics is part of the curriculum.
Do you know any sound engineering institutes in India which teaches audio electronics with ample practical sessions for the students? In our knowledge SEA is the only college in India which offers the subject in an extensive manner. The subject has proved to be effective for students to handle real-world situations.
SEA is not a Media Institute!!!
It is an academy offering audio engineering courses and only audio engineering unlike other institutes which are not focused and offers 100s of courses and sound engineering is one among them. For those students who have the ambition to become sound engineers in India should study from an institute which is focusing on the same.
Many institutes offer live projects within their campus. SEA organizes live projects within the campus making using of its world-class infrastructure and also live project in all the sense wherein students will be setting up the audio system for the performance of live music bands in the city. SEA Music Band Festival which the academy conducts every year in a venue in the city is a public event with the audience being the normal public and the entry is absolutely free.
Thanks to all Sound Engineers who have shared their view about the academy and we consider positive reviews as rewards and taking the words of critics as an opportunity to improve ourselves.
