Live Sound Training was established in 2010 by a group of sound engineers with the simple aim of providing robust and comprehensive training in all aspects of live sound.
We started teaching our course in the legendary Dublin Castle music venue in Camden Town because it was exactly the kind of venue where sound engineers would typically start their career.
The course has since evolved and travelled to various other music venues around London as well as Birmingham and a version of it has been taught at the Hong Kong Academy of Performing arts as well as in the Sahara Desert in Algeria.
We're passionately dedicated to teaching the core concepts of live sound in a way that's clear and easy to understand.
