Throughout the entertainment industry, Full Sail graduates have made their names working on award-winning films and albums, acclaimed video games and design projects, live productions, working inside major media companies, and more.  While attending Full Sail I learned the fundamentals of sound engineering.  Classes ranged from basic signal flow of audio to music theory, and even entertainment business.

Exploring Appalachian and Bluegrass music, vinyl records, hiking, and reading.
