Event Details

Creating a good monitor mix is one of the most important skills for a live sound engineer to master. This advanced class will introduce you to digital mixing boards in a low pressure environment. Subjects will include an introduction to Vera’s stage monitors, the basic ‘ringing out’ of monitors, EQing, and setting levels. The use of these techniques will allow you to create a clear monitor mix that will help performers be at their best. After a person has completed the Mixing for Monitors class they are eligible to take on Monitor Engineer volunteer positions at Vera shows.

This class is a prerequisite for the Front of House Mixing class at Vera and Monitor Engineer shifts at Vera Project shows. Each Live Sound class unlocks new audio engineering volunteer shifts at Vera and eventually paid opportunities in and outside of the venue. Become a volunteer at Vera to access other audio-related educational programs such as tours, field trips, and internships.

Accessibility Information
At this time, the monitor mixing board current height is not ADA compliant. The venue has two floor levels, and most classes take place on the lower level. A single-person lift provides access between backstage on the first floor, the stage platform, and the recording studio on the second floor.  Patrons may also access each level by taking the outdoor ramp pathways on the north and south sides of the building. Entrance and inside doorways are not automatic and may require assistance to open. Gender neutral bathrooms are located on the first floor and include ADA accessible stalls and sinks. Please contact Levin at levin@theveraproject.org if you have questions or accommodation requests.

Class Refund Policy
The Vera Project does not provide refunds nor reschedule tickets for other class dates. If you are no longer able to attend, you are welcome to transfer your ticket to another person through the SeeTickets platform or contact us to give your spot to one of our waitlisted scholarship recipients.
