When it comes to audio, the Conservatory not only teaches how to operate the gear, but how to repair it as well. Students are given an under-the-hood look at studio and live sound operations in their Troubleshooting and Maintenance classes that give them the skills they need to do basic gear repairs. In addition, students can take part in cable building clinics and weekend seminars where they can make their own speakers and microphones. What better way to make yourself useful in your new career by not only getting great sounds, but being able to troubleshoot and fix problem gear as well.
