Course Description

Mountview’s vocational, hands-on courses in sound have seen graduates go on to be production sound engineers and sound designers in the West End, across the UK and internationally.

For undergraduates, we offer two training levels: a two-year Foundation Degree (FdA) which provides a fast-track training and a three-year BA (Hons) with greater experience and the possibility of design roles.

Our practical training runs over 30 hours per week, 36 weeks per year. You’ll begin with workshops covering core skills in all areas of production arts before moving quickly on to practical show roles. What sets Mountview apart from other drama schools is that you get vast experience working on large musicals, mixing sound for West End-scale casts.

Strong emphasis is placed on learning through practice. There is continuous assessment of coursework and practical show roles throughout. All modules are compulsory.

Students gain first-hand experience of working alongside industry professionals including sound designers, engineers, radio mic fitters and programmers.

Sound training covers:

  • Hands-on training with contemporary sound equipment
  • Sound systems and supporting paperwork
  • Understanding and designing temporary power systems
  • Rigging and balancing sound systems
  • Prepping, fitting and monitoring radio mic systems
  • Programming and mixing stat-of-the-art sound desks on plays and musicals
  • Networking, soldering and other skills needed by the modern production professional
  • Sound design for plays and musicals of all sizes (BA only)
