A brand new Live 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 well over 6 hours of hands on training for audio engineers who work in live sound venues. While the training covers all the details of how to install and run any sound system, much of the training has been designed for Houses of Worship because a lot of them are run by volunteers who have very little experience in professional sound.

Owner of, David Wills explained, "I wanted to take everything I've learned working for big touring acts such as Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Phil Collins and Diana Ross...and blend it with my experience mixing literally thousands of sermons and worship services in the Church. My goal with this DVD set was to take all of that knowledge and compile it all into a DVD set that any Church can hand to a volunteer and have them up and running in no time."

"I have found that it's not the equipment that the church lacks, it's the training to know how to properly use that equipment. There's no excuse for poor sound in today's church...and I want to make sure that the volunteers are equipped for the job."
