Sound Engineering

Undergraduate program: Sound Engineering – Journalism

The faculty was found basing on interschool agreement. The main goal of the school is to provide qualified workshops for students to be able to work in record studios, radio, TV, press, media, live event support etc. It also provides studies in managment and journalism.

Program:

Sound engineering – journalism is an undergraduate program. Noon school is based on cooperation with WSTH in the city of Podkowa Lesna. All classes are held in Warsaw, headquarters on Mangalia street 4.

R1 – 3-year bachelor: noon school, evening school, weekend school

Even during the studying best students are invited for jobs to biggest PA system companies in Poland.

while studying process we are paying attention mostly to practice. That is not about lessons of theory , that is about 500 hours of workshops during the academy year. Here in our Academy is located professional radio station – 3 emission studios, post-production and editing workplaces, reporter equipment etc. We also organize classes in our private professiona record studios, studios A, B and C. All rooms are built from the ground up, specially developed using acoustic measuring for adaptation.  Studio A is equiped with analog mixer Studer 980 – 40 channels, AD/DA converter RedNet 2, top external compressors, the most known and most used condenser and dynamic microphones, hardware and software commonly used by record producers and mixer engineers all over the world, audio monitors EVE Audio SC307, Yamaha NS10 mkII. Studio B is avilable both for classes and for our student’s private projects (for free). It is also worth mentioning the “scene equipment”‘s lessons classroom, equiped with 19 analog and digital mixers.

Where you will find the job afterwards:

As a sound engineer:

  • on a radio
  • in theater,
  • small PA systems companies
  • clubs, culture centers
  • record studios
  • on a TV as record misxer and sound engineer
  • in post-production for TV, movies, advertising agencies
  • in big PA systems companies as an engineer
  • with music bands as a scene engineer, FOH engineer, record producer and mixer engineer

We will not tell you stories how good it was once (though it was really fascinating…..), but will get you infront of DAW (reaper, logic, cubase) and the latest release digital console, where you’ll get live recorded multitrack from the latest concert of well known Polish artist to be mixed. We’ll get you to the concert to be in touch with the entire process of live event support installation, starting from pacaging in a warehouse and finishing the artist performs. Our teachers will also take you to the backstage of the most popular TV shows on state television.

Don’t let yourself be involved in few-days, few-weeks or even few-months courses. Non of them will give you education! Narrow specialized courses are aimed to expand youe knowledges and skills in some exact field of studying, in this case it is sincerely recommended and welcome.
