: im interested in getting into pro sound im currentley going to school at mansfield university for comunications and broadcasting but i feel im on a dead end path to the carrer that i am chasing i am very talented in music i would like to prosue a careeer in the field but is thier any type of apprentiship programs for this?

Well, presenting yourself in a professional manner by either learning to spell and/or spell-checking your postings would definitely be a good start. You never know, there may be a link between the dead end path in communications and the communication skills you utilize.

As far as apprenticeship, there is no organized program that I am aware of though it would make sense in the field of live sound engineering.

The closest thing I see happen to apprenticeship is when you get a job at a sound company and work your way up.

Typically this could be starting in the shop and learning the gear and company. Followed by touring as a systems tech. As a systems tech you would have the opportunity to work with engineers and learn the methods they use to tune, mix etc...

I must say that I learned some of the most valuable mixing info that I use today when I was a system tech for engineers over the years.

Good luck and hope that helps.

oh, and just fer good mesure run a speel chek on yor post.
