An Online Course for Church Audio Engineers
How Can Mixcademy Help Your Church?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent a lot of time sitting in church services where the mix was bad. Not just kind of bad, but really bad. In fact maybe your church services suffer weekly from a bad mix. Some things are too loud. Some things are too soft. And it doesn’t sound good. Even more importantly, it doesn’t feel good. Something’s off.
And if you notice the sound, so do the people in your congregation. They may not say anything, but they won’t engage with your music or your teaching. They will often be distracted instead of focusing on the service. And that means they are not hearing the good news you’re sharing with them.
Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to do many consults with churches of all sizes. What I discover is that it’s almost never a staffing problem. Your volunteers are there, serving every week. They want to learn. They want to get better. Whether you have a 16 year old kid just learning the console or an 84 year old veteran who loves to serve, the problem is almost never the heart.
The problem is almost always the training. More specifically, the lack of training. And that’s totally understandable. If you don’t have the training resources to give your volunteers, how can they ever learn? How can they get a better mix if they don’t know how?
After spending just an hour with an audio volunteer, I can always make huge improvements to the mix. But I can’t be traveling around the country all the time – and many churches can’t afford to hire consultants like me to come and work with them and train their entire staff.
So we came up with a solution – Let’s take the knowledge we’ve developed over the years mixing in churches, for concerts, and at conferences and package it into an easy to use course.
Mixcademy is designed for all your volunteers. If they know how to use a computer, they can use Mixcademy. We start out with high-level important concepts then move into the more technical skills. Finally, we give you real, practical tips for getting the most musical mix. Because mixing isn’t just about understanding the technical, it is very much about understanding the music and art.
The course includes the following:
- Video explanations and lessons
- Site license (meaning you can share your login information with anyone on your team)
- Over 50,000 words of written content
- Various photos and diagrams to help explain concepts
- Extensive guides on mixing individual instruments
For custom consulting and training you would pay literally thousands of dollars. With Mixcademy, you just pay $49 monthly for as long as you want access to the course. You can cancel at any time, no questions asked.
And if you’re still not sure, we’ll offer you a full refund within the first 14 days if you unhappy.
Think about it: You have the opportunity to give your team the tools they need to create an engaging, exciting, amazing-sounding service. You’re steps away from having a more engaging and impactful service. What is that worth to your congregation?
