From Glastonbury to any underground venue, while all eyes are on the stage, there’s an engineer working to make the show sound great. This is true for any event relying on sound reinforcement: theatre, corporate events, exhibitions and large scale sporting events. It won’t sound good without a skilled professional engineer. And before the band gets anywhere close to the stage, someone has to think about designing that PA system. The job of the live sound engineer is as important as that of anyone on stage. Live sound isn’t a job; it’s a lifestyle. And here’s where you learn it.

What our students say -

"I had a great time at SSR and really enjoyed my time in Manchester. SSR is the place where you'll find all the necessary facilities and amenities to empower not only your theoretical knowledge but also a place to develop a number of really important practical skills, that will help you get into the track of the live music industry.

You can feel the warmth and support from the staff at SSR from your very first day there. I am lucky enough to be a part of this great community and I want to say thanks to all the staff members at SSR and of course my special greetings to Mr. Jay Beard and Paul Rattcliff, the men who taught me how to use the available audio tools in a safe and correct manner, and how to get the best out of them!"
