Church Sound Master Class review

Mitchell Hancock

"Church Sound Master Class has been an invaluable tool for me and my church sound team. Most of us are new to being behind the board on Sunday mornings so this easy-to-understand video training has helped us learn the basics of mixing a lot faster than only reading a book. This master class is especially useful for any AV department head at a church, regardless of your experience level."

Church Sound Master Class review

Lindsay McPhee

"The videos are produced in an easy to understand and clearly communicated fashion – following a clear path from the various input types to a reliable, dependable and repeatable sound check procedure, to mix techniques for EQ, Compression and how to use Effects to enhance a mix, to mixing stage monitoring – both foldback speakers and in ear monitors, to feedback elimination and prevention. The videos can be shown on a large screen during a team training session or as a way to teach individuals who learn better by watching videos instead of reading.

The bonus downloads condense a lot of information into just a few pages and focus on the most common problems and simple, effective solutions. The Sound Check Checklist contains techniques that I have used for many years to start every mix with a good foundation to build on."

Howdy! I'm the bestselling author of the book Great Church Sound, audio geek, and professional systems engineer. Training church sound techs how to get better sound at church has been my passion for many years.

I didn't start out as a professional though. In fact, I had no formal training prior to learning how to run sound at my church. I started out as a musician and volunteer tech at church, then quickly got placed into a leadership role. But I had no idea how to train my team.

So, I set out to find the best resources for church sound volunteers.

This course is the result of over 20 years of experience as a professional sound systems installer, tech director, and musician.

By taking this master class, you'll get to learn my process and methods that have been successfully used to train church sound volunteers around the world.
