‘Building a future where everyone’s voice is heard and valued’
USA - Meyer Sound has launched an expanded education programme for 2024, coinciding with the celebration of its 45th anniversary.
“As the pace of audio technology accelerates, Meyer Sound is strengthening its commitment to education programs, which we see as investing in the future of the industry,” says Robyn Bykofsky, Meyer Sound’s training & education manager. “Our training programmes are aimed at all experience levels, with science-backed in-person and virtual course content that fits the way people learn today.”
The 2024 programme builds on the success of the company’s revamped 2023 initiatives, which engaged more than 1,800 students through 50 in-person trainings around the world and through coursework in the new Meyer Sound Learning online platform.
This year, Meyer Sound is extending in-person education across the U.S. and beyond, with trainings in Berkeley, CA; Irvine, CA; Portland, OR; Las Vegas, NV; and international events in Mexico City; Hamburg, Germany; and Derby, UK. Building on the success of 2023’s pilot programme, the Meyer Sound Learning platform continues to expand its offerings, including supplemental online training materials, on-demand e-learning content, and virtual instructor-led sessions.
Meyer Sound’s collaborations with key industry players showcase the power of industry cooperation in nurturing artistic and technical excellence and advancing innovation.
In January, Meyer Sound held a three-day training at Clair Global for Metallica tour crew members and Clair Global staff, focusing on deploying Panther systems in the field.
Meyer Sound is conducting specialised trainings, in cooperation with experts from Cirque du Soleil, for both the Touring Show Division and Resident Show Division, led by Richard Bugg, Meyer Sound’s digital products solutions architect.
In partnership with Venuetech, Meyer Sound conducted a System Design & Optimisation public in-person training in Dubai, led by Merlijn van Veen.
Meyer Sound actively engages with educational institutions including UC Irvine, University of Derby, and Full Sail University, conducting sessions, workshops, and training programs and supporting student-led theatre productions and sound design projects.
This spring, Meyer Sound will launch a scholarship programme for women and gender-expansive people in the live sound industry. Accepted applicants receive a 100% tuition discount on Meyer Sound’s public in-person trainings, with dedicated spaces in each training.
“Not only do we offer industry-leading learning resources, we strive to foster equitable access to those resources,” Bykofsky explains. “We place a strong emphasis on representation, reaching out to women and gender-expansive individuals. By doing so, we’re not just shaping the future of sound, but building a future where everyone’s voice is heard and valued.”
