After great success with the mixing console 101 guide I compiled and dozens of one-on-one system trainings, I have decided to offer this educational experience to a classroom full of teachable people wanting to expand their knowledge and learn more about the skill in the sound ministry.
The greatest investment you can make in your sound system is education.
Topics will include...
The Sound Wave - just a little bit of physics
Which and Where - microphone selection and placement
The Warehouse Effect - room acoustics
Know the Knobs - console intensive
and everyone's favorite
A day in the life of a dog - How to survive sound check, mix a great service with the proper heart.
This all day seminar begins with a lecture based curriculum and then evolves into hands on how to apply everything to your world.
Each student receives a Workbook and Console guide.
This on-site training is more cost effective than sending your people off to school and the in depth hands on with your equipment accelerates learning. Call or email for cost or more info on scheduling this event.
"As a worship leader, I often times find it difficult to get qualified sound operators and I have to resort training random volunteers myself. After much frustration I finally decided to bring in a company that could offer a solid foundation in Audio and then teach my people how create a clean mix to engage the congregation in the worship experience.
Thank you SoundGuy Productions..." Josh WeissMinister of Music, Abundant Life Church Grand Prairie TX
"Your ‘Sound Training’ was excellent! It was informative, entertaining and full of usable, practical knowledge that can and will be used by our Sound Ministry crew!" John Ganske Director of Worship Ministries, Fountaingate Fellowship Abilene TX
"The Audio Training course was a great overview of sound and how it works. He also focused on the ministry of our media workers. He took time to answer EVERY question we had. The strength of his training came during the hands on time. Danny explained OUR sound board and equipment to us. Every knob, dial, and insert was explained. Plus each of our men were able to spend time mixing and incorporating the skills they had learned. It was amazing to hear the quality of our sound improve so fast. The next Sunday morning I was able to hear the difference." Alex Navarrette Music Minister, Calvary First Baptist Church Mesquite TX
"I appreciate the valuable training you provided for our guys. We are continuing to reap the benefits of the insight you provided. I particularly appreciated the biblical perspective that you brought to the seminar, I wholeheartedly recommend SoundGuy Productions for your church’s audio training needs."
Bob Berg Associate Pastor of Music & Family Ministries, First Baptist Church, Edgewood, TX
"Thank you for the time you spent with our media team here in North Carolina. The classroom time brought the whole concept of sound reinforcement to a level our people could connect with. The acoustics portion of the seminar really shed light on what we perceived to be limitations in the speakers. The time around the console changed our approach to mixing and got everyone on the same page....thank you " Kelly R. Allsopp Minister of Music, Liberty Christian Church, Havelock, NC
"After the seminar I asked my sound tech if he thought the time spent was valuable and he said “Definitely!”. To me that spoke volumes!
I believe having you come to our facility, using our equipment, experiencing our acoustics is the only way to go. We paid one persons travel instead of six. The cost to benefit ratio is in our favor!! You laid a great foundation for our new volunteers and strengthened the knowledge of our experienced techs."
Kevin D. Hoggard Minister of Music & Senior Adults, Lamar Baptist Church, Wichita Falls, TX
"Danny has a true passion for music and sound quality. His extensive knowledge of sound boards and sytems, and ability to communicate on the level of the average layman volunteer is great. Our team of AV volunteers not only came away with a better understanding of how our board works but how the electronics impact the service. They feel empowered by having a better grasp
of how to use the equipment. "
Trey Groves Minister of Music, Lake Highlands Baptist Church, Dallas, TX
"We have used SoundGuy Productions for our youth camps and various outreach events for about 4 years. We are a large church in the area and our technical team continually grows, It was an easy call to have Danny train both our new volunteers and our seasoned guys. Danny has something to offer everyone from the anatomy of sound waves to the application of better microphone technique. This will be an annual event."
