Britannia Row prepares 2017 live sound training courses

Britannia Row Productions Training has announced its core 12-week Live Sound Technology Course (LSTC), which will run from early April.

The 2017 course will primarily be delivered from South Thames College in Wandsworth with some sessions being held at Britannia Row’s main headquarters in Twickenham, and some on site at Britannia Row shows.

The tutors delivering the course will be Britannia Row staff, freelance engineers and technicians.

“Unfortunately, we were unable to run the 12-week full-time Live Sound Technology Course in 2016 due to lack of appropriate accommodation,” explained Britannia Row Productions Training’s MD, Mike Lowe. “The facilities at Wandsworth Campus include a dedicated training room for the course, lecture theatres, a theatre, a sports hall and several recording studios and rehearsal spaces. The college runs several courses for musicians and vocalists so there is no shortage of live music for our LSTC students to work with. We could not have a better range of facilities.

“We are extremely proud that over 80 students from our 2013/14/15 LSTC courses are now earning their living as live sound professionals around the world with sound companies, venues and as freelancers,” Lowe added. “The range of courses we are offering this year gives the greatest choice of learning options to those wanting start a career in live sound, for those already working who wish to enhance their knowledge and skills or for those working in symbiotic areas such as audio equipment manufacturing or various areas of live production who would benefit from a greater understanding of all aspects of live sound.”
