What do you need to know to be a live sound engineer?

Mixing music for concerts sounds like a fun job right?  It can be…IF you know what you’re doing.  If you don’t, you’ll just be listening to the audience yell at you to ‘fix the sound’ all night.

There’s a lot more to mixing live music than just turning knobs and pushing faders on the soundboard.  If you want to get started in live sound, Mixing Music Live teaches you the techniques you need to have a successful show.



The fastest way to improve your mixes.

The one key ingredient that separates a professional recording or performance from an amateur one is properly applied EQ.   In LISTEN! you are going to learn how to create brilliant mixes from your home studio that compete with the Pros, simply by implementing professional EQ techniques.   

Have you ever thought- ‘I know what EQ is, but I’m just not sure how to use it or what to do with it'?

Andre Jarreau - Musician

LISTEN! Student

LISTEN! is awesome. I’m a lifelong musician and have never heard music like I hear it now.  Now I can mix much better, but more importantly I can talk to producers about the sound I am looking for.  This is increasing my network connections so important to my music career.


Finn Pedersen- Bass Player/Sound Engineer

Mixing Music Live Student

The Mixing Music Live course helped me further my work of making live sound for the 2 amateur bands where I play bass.  I now have a better understanding of how to mix and make a good live sound and how to avoid feedback both in the rehearsal room and in a live situation.

Scott Carr- Recording Engineer/ Musician

LISTEN! Student

Michelle is on her "A Game" when it comes to EQ! Even though I have been a musician for 45+ years, I had never really had anyone explain EQ to me in such a detailed, informative, and educational manner; not even in the ballpark as to how she has done it.  I totally recommend her course to anyone who is serious about mixing and who is willing to put in the work!

Bill Talley -Live Sound Engineer/Musician

LISTEN! Student

If you want to learn how to mix sound you can not go wrong with this course. Michelle's teaching style allows you to hear and see what is happening instead of trying to visualize what a book is trying to convey. I have dozens of books, but none cover it in such an easy to understand way as this course does. Money well spent. Thank you Michelle!

Simon Boniface-

Mixing Music Live Student

I must say that this has been the best course that I have done.  The order in which the subjects have been presented and the demonstrations have been brilliant. Everything has been very well explained and helped to re-enforce the knowledge for me. Thank you for putting the effort into to sharing your professional experience for non professionals such as myself. It is much appreciated and put to good use.
