SSR Success Story - Emma Connelly, Director - Wigwam Acoustics

Emma Connelly

Director - Wigwam Acoustics

Music Production & Sound Engineering

SSR student Emma Connelly has recently been celebrating a full-time appointment at Wigwam Acoustics, one of the UK’s biggest and most respected Sound Reinforcement Companies.

Emma completed her training on the Audio Engineering course at SSR in January 2006, going on to teach on our (now discontinued) WISEAMP course to a group of aspiring women sound engineers.

Wigwam Acoustics:
“Emma’s Pro Tools training has stood her in good stead for work in the sound industry. We have an increasing need for Pro Tools operators in live sound and installations, and we need Emma’s skills full-time now. Emma has the right attitude and aptitude and she works well within the team and with our clients.

Emma started here by offering her services on a voluntary basis. It was her shear enthusiasm and willingness to learn that impressed us. She even plays footy with the lads at dinner time! Emma will be working in the sales and installations division, offering Pro Tools training to our clients. Welcome aboard Emma!”

Since this story was published, Emma has risen through the ranks at Wigwam as is now one of the companies directors!
