I will be holding another Sound Doctrine Seminar Event!!
This one will take place in Lorain, OH at Faith Ministries Christian Center.The dates have not been finalized yet but it will be in the next 4-6 weeks!

For those that were unable to attend the session at Anointed gates in Cleveland, this is an opportunity to not only attend the regular seminar, but I am going to hold a special "Intro to MultiMedia Session" that evening!
The July 15th session went very well and all the attendees expressed how happy they were that they came. Dave Kennedy from Guitar Center Cleveland brought out some cool gear for us to use for the hands on sessions. As a matter of fact, the hands on time went so well that we restructured the afternoon lectures so that the attendees got even MORE hands on time.

If you were not able to attend the previous session, log on to my website and pre-register for this one! If you provide me with more info about YOUR schedule I may even be able to arrange the date so that more people can attend.

Post Seminar Update

The Sound Doctrine Seminar Series Event was a great success!
For those that weren't aware, Guitar Center Cleveland decided to co-sponsor the event with me! Dave Kennedy worked out all the details and got them to officially step in and help out! Big thanks!!

I arrived early on Saturday morning and made sure everything was in place. Guests came in right on time and we had a few moments to hang out and talk before the official start. There were many several churches and denominations present. I was pleased to find out that my online registration/payment process had been succesful for many in the group.

The morning session flew by quickly and a lot of information was exchanged.
After completing a good portion of "Flow with Me: The Basics of Sound and Sound Systems", we took a break before the hands on session. The group made it clear that they learned a lot when I inquired at the morning break.

Dave Kennedy from Guitar Center brought 3 hands on stations that had EQ, compression and gating for the attendees to work on during our breakout session. He did a great job of working with each person individually. While he had a few, I was also taking time to address questions from the remainder of the group. The attendees let me know that this was the best part of the day, so as a result I decided to re-work the afternoon to be more hands on. Instead of just talking about best practices we actually did them. Thanks to the Anointed Gates musicians, we had a live band to work with. We took the time to examine the mic'ing on the drums and were able to make a HUGE difference in the sounds! We corrected improper mic techniques and discussed what types of mics should be used as well as their placement. We even did some trouble shooting in a "real world" situation!

The turn out was good and all that attended expressed how much the fellowship and information had blessed them. I have a video and audio recording of the first half of the event, since I redid the afternoon session I haven't reviewed the footage yet but I hope to make it into my first video podcast!

The next Seminar will be held soon! Possibly as early as the last week in August, late as the end of September.

Until then remember It's about Sound, Not Doctrine!
