Most churches I know have the right gear...they just need the proper training

A new video course geared towards Sound volunteers in local churches has been released by, the leader in training audio engineers on the internet.

The free church sound training course outlines the 5 major mistakes that are made when mixing sound in the local church.

Founder 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 Diana Ross...and blend it with my experience running sound in the church with Israel Houghton and BeBe Winan sand mixing literally thousands of sermons and worship services in the Church. My goal with this free course was to take all of that combined knowledge and cram it all into series of video lessons that any Church can view and hand to a volunteer and have them up and running in a week."

"Too many churches have all the right equipment, but the staff running them are poorly trained. And their are precious few resources out there that teach all the basic of how to run sound, eliminate feedback and blend a great mix that you can be proud of."

The lessons are taken from's "Ultimate Live Sound School".
