Master Mix Live™ is uniquely a ((( LIVE ))) Audio Engineering Program

 

Our Master Mix ((( LIVE )))  instructors assess and assign students to various Las Vegas showrooms, and/or, sound companies for additional Student Intern Lab instruction and professional training,

Instructors also arrange for each student to actively participate as a live audio engineer aide at sound checks, venue set-ups, or rehearsals accompanied by an instructor so the students learned skills are utilized throughout the 20-week course.

During each students live audio engineering course they will have access to learn, practice and, mix audio with the use of actual live show multi track recordings.
