Five of the most important audio concepts we need to know on stage.
I love being involved in live music — it's really fun and I get to work with some amazing people (including Grammy-winning artists)! But when I started out, it was difficult learning about live sound because there weren't many resources. That's why I built this course about audio on stage.
After all, music and audio gear are pretty interactive with each other. The way audio engineers and musicians communicate can be critical in the success of any show. So, the knowledge you'll learn in this course is useful if you're on stage or behind the soundboard. Plus, it's free!

My name's Scott Adamson and I've been mixing FOH (Front of House) for live shows for over 20 years. During that time, I've been lucky to tour with a ton of amazing artists: Haim, Khalid, Passion Pit, St. Vincent, Ingrid Michaelson, Sleater-Kinney, Fred Armisen, The Hold Steady, and many more. I've done shows at some of the most iconic venues in the world, from the Sydney Opera House to Madison Square Garden to the main stage at Coachella.
Along the way I had to learn everything on the job! I really wish there had been a good resource to get all this information when I was starting out — it would have put me light years ahead in building my skills. And now that The Production Academy has given free material to thousands of people around the globe, I'm happy we're helping people who want to learn about live sound!
