Music Production

Music production is a wild beast these days with multiple DAW's, methodologies, workflows, technologies, hardware, softwares.... the list is endless. Here at The School of Sound we have spent years using some of the latest trends and technologies to finally arrive at a place where audio, visuals and lights can be combined to bring music and music performance to a new level. Check out some of our videos to see the results or head over to the Studio page to find out excatly what technologies we use.

Live Sound

With over 20 years experience catering for live shows in the corporate and festival arenas of live sound, we've seen it all. Whether your running a large or small scale corporate conference, after dinner entertainment, marketing in your local shopping center, cokking demonstrations and product launches we've been there and done that. Now, that experience is passed onto you.

Audio Visual Services

Just like the Live Sound element to our work, we can expand upon the audio to incorporate lighting, standard projection, 3D projection, image blending, LED walls and combinations of each to provide stunning backdrops and show stopping impact upon clients. Using the latest technologies, The School of Sound is combining technolgies that the rest are struggling to keep up with.

Music Technology

The true passion of #SOS. This is where it all began for The School and this is where all else expands from. Production, DJ'ing, performing and expanding the misic to new levels with co-ordintaed visuals and lighting make this the very core of what we do. Our knowledge and experience is what we now try to package for you the student to not only learn what we do, but to surpass us and push the boundaries of what music and its ever expanding plethora of technolgies can do.
