In Their Own Words

“I really like to share the passion I feel about every aspect of technical live-event production. My teaching style is based on the learning-by-doing method, in which students are actively involved in technical live-event production from day one and throughout the semester.”

“I think it’s important for performers, engineers, and professionals from the music-business industry to understand not only the technical aspects, but also the specific language behind every live event.”
