Subject: Hello.

Hi im new to this list and this area....aand i could do with some advice.
Well i was looking to do a course in studio sound
production/enginnering...but the thing is i want to use this course to try
and get employment as well as make music. Basically what does a sound
enginner need to know to be good at his job ...what skills do employers look
for...and as a skilled sound enginner what are the best skills to learn. U
see the situation is im looking at courses and they say they teach this and
that...and i dont even know if the things they are teaching are of any use.
Thanks for the help.

Edmund,

Don't know which area and which schools you are refering to and
I shouldn't be replying as I'm affiliated with one of them. (SAE)

Most (all) schools only teach you the technical stuff which is
"needed" to start working in the audio business. I put needed
down as you will NOT need any diploma or course to start
working in audio. Just good ears and a willingness to work long
and really, really hard. All info you will learn in schools is on the
internet. I started learning about audio several years ago and
after that took the SAE AED course. 85 % of what was teached
I already knew. But No school can teach you Creativity......

What you should try to learn before starting a job as Studio
Engineer / Producer is how to work with EQ, Desks, Outboard
gear and devellop a sense of understanding of music (training
your ears..) All other things will come after that. And you'll
find out stuff by just hanging out at places like these. Although
the level of understanding of acoustics is not needed for
engineering quite as deep as some people here can go. (That's
a complimnet to the group.)

As for the differences in schools I can only say that you should
find out how much practical and theoretical time you get.
How much time do you get by yourselfs or in a small group (below
4 people) in the studio to figure out what to do and how.
And how much theoretical will be given. (how many hours..)

And what do you want to know ? What kind of studio work do you
want to work in ? Digital, Tape based, Radio, TV or movies etc..

If you know this than you can eliminate some subjects although I
would always prefer to be broad knowledgable and based on that
further proffesionalise yourself in one area...

SAE is Good although I don't know where you are located and
which courses you are applying to.

I'll see ya in my class,

Hi Davies,
Please, see the URL [www.aes.org] and find what you want. Remember, the
listing of the schools is only this, a listing, without any
approval stamp or special recommendation !
Finally, I liked very much of the Arjan Sinnige's answer.
Regards
Nestor

Ed-

In the midwest US, you might take a look at Columbia College (Chicago).
Here are the course listings - click on "Audio"
http://con-ed.colum.edu/coursecatalog/index.html
However, a "hands-on" approach is the best way to learn (IMHO).

Good Luck!
