A new Training DVD set titled "Ultimate Live Sound School" focused on the Church Sound Community concentrates on building up sound engineers in sound theory, troubleshooting and mixing.

Too many churches get caught up in buying more equipment but the training is where the rubber hits the road.

A brand new Church Sound Training 3 disk DVD set, "Ultimate Live Sound School" is due for release soon at, the leader in video training materials for musicians and studio owners.

The DVD set has over 6 hours of top of the line training for audio engineers who work or would like to work in the live sound industry. While the training covers all the details of how to design, install and run any live sound system, much of the training has been designed for Churches and Houses of Worship because so many of them struggle with poor sound.

Owner of, David Wills explained, "My goal was to take everything I have learned working for the biggest touring acts in the world such as Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Phil Collins and Gospel Acts such as Israel Houghton and BeBe Winans...and blend it with my experience running sound and mixing literally thousands of sermons and worship services in the Church. My goal with this DVD set was to take all of that combined knowledge and compile it into a DVD set that can be handed to any sound volunteer and have them up to speed."

"Too many churches get caught up in buying more equipment but the training is where the rubber hits the road. A lot of churches I visit have state of the art gear, but the volunteers are poorly equipped to run the sound system."
