About Michelle...

As a professional sound engineer with decades of experience, I’ve been helping aspiring sound engineers and musicians just like you to learn the skills you need to get started in live sound and mixing.

There is so much to learn, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and off track.  How do you know what you need to know when you don’t know what you don’t know? Google and Youtube can easily lead you down a rabbit hole of wrong information and learning through trial and error takes time.

I want to help you cut through all the noise and get to the real nuts and bolts of what you need to know to get out there and start making things sound great.

With my programs, you’ll get the benefit of not only my knowledge and education  (from two different audio schools), but all of my years of professional experience in the music industry.  You’ll learn the most essential principles and techniques that would take years to figure out on your own.
