Audio Production Course Launched With PHS, MAC & BSCTC

Mountain Arts Center

A new dual credit course for high school juniors and seniors is being taught at Prestonsburg High School this semester. Audio Production I is a creative partnership between the Mountain Arts Center, Big Sandy Community & Technical College, and Floyd County Schools. The course is being taught at PHS and the MAC.

Audio Production I is the gateway course to new BSCTC certificates in audio, video, and theatre production. Students in this course are introduced to basic technical skills, recording equipment, and vocabulary for audio productions. Students will also develop skills in evaluation and listening to audio recordings, and utilize industry software for audio recording and editing.

MAC Executive Director, Joe Campbell stated, “There is a recording industry being established right here in eastern Kentucky where great musical talent lives. We are supplying the studio and creating technicians that enable the music industry to thrive in our mountains.”

A special thanks goes to Gearheart Communications for purchasing hardware and software necessary for the course.

For more information about the audio production certificate or any upcoming opportunities, please contact Joe Campbell at jcampbell0136@kctcs.edu
