Mixing for Panto and the Festive Season

Mixing for Panto and the Festive Season

Mixing for Panto and the Festive Season is far, far more than just another "this is how a mixing desk works" workshop - Mixing for the Panto's participants are taken through every stage of the process from the rehearsal room to setting up a desk in its base state, including the theory, introduction to why both line-by-line and vocally advanced mixing is so important, and what happens when you don't do it..

Hands-on experience is an essential aspect of the course, which includes opportunities to talk informally and in depth with West End show sound teams.
