Just giving you an update. I got my 'in' with Cunard as
stage crew last year, this year I covered for the Sound
Engineer and am about to start my third contract on the
Queen Mary 2 as Sound Technician (I finally got my dream
job). Anyway I just wanted to thank you for all the support
and encouragement over the last couple of years. The 5 day
Sound course was fantastic and now I'm travelling the world
doing my dream job and have told everyone it's all thanks
to Base Sound, thanks once again.
I just wanted to email you and say what a fantastic week I
had on the course. You have really opened up my mind to
live sound and I have soo many ideas that I now want
to incorporate into my working life. I can't wait
to fully start my career within the industry.
you probably know I learned more than I ever have regarding
sound within the first 2 hours of being there with
you. I clearly have a far better understanding than I've
ever had all thanks to your great course. It will be
remembered as one of the highlights of last year and
probably for some time to come. I thoroughly enjoyed my
time there and best of all was having the chance
to put all we learned to practice. That really was the best
way to learn and it explained quite clearly all the
requirements needed for the best possible set up PA wise.
Once again many thanks for an experience I couldn't have
gained from anywhere else.
The Course was brilliant, informative, rich in
content, practical exercises and demonstration,
demystifies and gives confidence to go give it a
proper go. Rarely have I been on such a course
which gives me all of the aims and objectives, and
I could have stayed for at least another week.
It was very enjoyable and I can’t wait
to put it into practice. Indeed I have already told
the boys what I want to do, only the bassist is
resisting so far, but I think we can settle his
concerns with a demonstration!
