Mix magazine's October 2012 issue featured an article on the increase in job opportunities in live sound, highlighting touring as a top revenue source in the audio industry. The article included an interview with a panel of experts from four of the top U.S. audio education programs that offer a live sound curriculum, and Full Sail was one of the schools included. Dana Roun, Full Sail's Director of Audio Arts, and Mark Johnson, the Show Production Program Manager, discussed how Full Sail's Show Production Bachelor's Degree program prepares students for careers in the industry.
Dana and Mark shared Full Sail's teaching methods, opportunities for hands-on experience, job leads upon graduation, and more. The article also included a success story from 2001 Show Production graduate David Coyle, who now works as a System Engineer and Monitor Engineer at Clair Global.
"It's always an honor when you're recognized as top tier by your peers," says Mark. "I think the level of live production education that we provide speaks for itself by virtue of our grads consistently finding good gigs after they graduate. They are out there working in a lot of different capacities."
