"I’ve worked in live sound on and off for two decades and I found this course to be perfect. Many things I knew but others I've been doing without actually understanding why it works. After completing Mixing Music Live, I’ve got much higher confidence. Particularly in the analog world versus digital world. The videos are engaging and the assessments are awesome."

"The course flows very well. I had no experience in live sound when I started the course and know considerably more now. I liked the vocabulary sheets that were provided and how the videos were short because it helped to focus on a specific topic and understand it better before moving on."

"The Mixing Music Live course helped me further in my work of 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."

"When I know Michelle's gonna be there I know how it's gonna go....the drums are booming, the bass is nice and fat and round, the vocals are crisp and right out there where they need to be, the solos are loud, it's a fun thing to listen to and it's what we want for our fans..."

I’ve seen her successfully handle any mixing challenge imaginable, in every size & shape venue around the world….Learning about sound mixing from an absolute pro with real world experience is the only way to go. Michelle meets and exceeds all requirements, and is a total pro in every way."
