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.
