Britannia Row Productions Training is running its core 12 week Live Sound Technology Course (LSTC) from early April. The 2017 course will be primarily be delivered from South Thames College in Wandsworth with some sessions being held at Britannia Row’s main headquarters in Twickenham and some on site at Britannia Row shows. The tutors delivering the course will, as usual, be Britannia Row staff and freelance engineers and technicians.
Britannia Row Productions Training’s M.D., Mike Lowe said, “We have missed running the popular LSTC. Last year we ran six sixteen-week part time courses, held on Saturdays and Sundays at Twickenham as well as bespoke courses tailored to the specific needs of companies in the industry who send their employees to us for training but just did not have the physical space to run the LSTC. Unfortunately, we were unable to run the 12 week full-time Live Sound Technology Course in 2016 due to lack of appropriate accommodation. We have come to an arrangement with South Thames College, our partners for our 3 year BSc Hons Degree Course in Live Sound Production, to predominately use their Wandsworth Campus to run LSTC this spring. The facilities at Wandsworth Campus include a dedicated training room for the course, lecture theatres, a theatre, a sports hall and several recording studios and rehearsal spaces. The college runs several courses for musicians and vocalists so there is no shortage of live music for our LSTC students to work with. We could not have a better range of facilities.’
‘We are extremely proud that over 80 students from our 2013/14/15 LSTC courses are now earning their living as live sound professionals around the world with sound companies, venues and as freelancers. Most of them are already working at a high level in live sound. Joe Standon, for example, who was on a 2014 Live Sound Technology Course is already the front of house sound engineer for both Limp Bizkit and Rag ‘n Bone Man and touring the world.’
‘The range of courses we are offering this year gives the greatest choice of learning options to those wanting start a career in live sound, for those already working who wish to enhance their knowledge and skills or for those working in symbiotic areas such as audio equipment manufacturing or various areas of live production who would benefit from a greater understanding of all aspects of live sound.”
