Live SET (Sound Engineering for Teens)

Live SET is an exciting program for Portland-area high schoolers to get real-world, practical training in the art and science of live sound engineering from top professionals in the field. Students attend a series of 5 workshops on acoustics, gain, signal flow, setting up a PA system, etc. The sixth session is an all ages concert that is open to the public and fully run by the students.

This is a one-of-a-kind chance for young musicians, music fans, engineers, technical artists and creative types of all kinds to learn a valuable, interesting and employable skill – how to make live music and amplified audio sound its best in performance settings.
