In this class, we will start from scratch and learn about sound design for theatre. There are many different types of sound design, and plays (not just musicals) have a lot more sound than one would think! Join me in my passion for bringing shows to life with sound and music, and then let your imagination shine as you develop a design of your own! Week 1, Session 1: What is sound design? Overview, syllabus distribution Week 1, Session 2: Script analysis from a designer's perspective, types...
Students will learn theatre etiquette (both in the house and backstage), collaborative creation, and improve script analysis, musicality, listening, and storytelling skills
I hold a BA in Performing and Visual Arts with a focus in Early British Drama and Shakespeare and have won several awards for my work in this field. In addition, I have won 3 local awards for sound design, a national Ambie award, and have been nominated for a Big Easy award in New Orleans. I have extensive experience in sound design for modern and classical plays and am highly trained in this area.
Each week will see roughly 2 hours of homework spent creatively. This is not necessarily on the computer; some students may choose to create their sounds on a computer, but I welcome and celebrate live sound designs, too!
I have listed my favorite free resources that can be used on most devices. It is not required that students download these resources, however - many productions include live sound effects for a much more real experience! Please do not hesitate to ask me to clarify any of these products. STUDENTS WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, OR OTHER ITEMS FOR THIS CLASS. It relies on our creativity as sound designers! Each student will be sent a 10-minute play to use during class privately. These plays will be used for their final project. The remainder of materials will be placed in the classroom immediately following the class in which they are assigned.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Final projects will be observed and provided feedback. All students will receive a certificate of completion. When a student needs a letter grade, it can be assigned and forwarded to a homeschool or other academic body.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
