LIVE SET

Live SET (Sound Engineering for Teens)

Live SET is an exciting program for high school aged students to get real-world training in the art and science of live sound engineering taught by top professionals in the field.

Students attend a series of workshops on acoustics, gain, signal flow, setting up a PA system, all with hands on work with sound equipment. The series will culminate in a sound showcase where they are running the sound for a performance.

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.

Live SET @ Mississippi Studios

Live SET at Mississippi Studios is a 6 session commitment where students spend three separate weekends from 10 am to 3 pm in the venue learning the basics of sound engineering using Mississippi Studios’ state of the art system. After a series of more informational and hands on practice days, the students participate in a sound check day with a live professional band, and then fully engineer a free all-ages concert that is open to the public on the final day.

The dates for Spring 2020 are:

April 4, 5, 11, 12

April 18 (sound check day) and 19 (show day) 

For this program Young Audiences holds an application period and from the applications, we choose a cohort of 10 students to participate. We know that currently in the field of sound engineering, 95% of engineers are white males, so it is a value of this program to prioritize students of color and students who do not identify as male.
