Stage

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!

Scott Adamson

A lifelong musician, Scott started his journey in audio by purchasing recording gear to make demos for his high school band. After moving to Chicago to start a studio and work in a variety of live music venues, a transition to full-time touring work came as the excitement of live production and worldwide travel proved to be too much to ignore.

During his entire career, the idea of The Production Academy was forming. There has long been a lack of quality educational resources for live music production, and the desire to change that has resulted in a wide range of course offerings. Now, The Production Academy has helped thousands around the world improve their live sound skills.
