Making it sound better workshopSound and Pixel has developed a series of workshops designed to make cutting edge technology in Sound, Video and Lighting part of your Worship experience.

We teach in a fun, interactive environment at the levels appropriate for your technical ministry teams. From beginning microphone techniques to advanced mixing, from simple one camera IMAG (image magnification, enhancement), to advanced video/multi-camera shoots and from room lights to full theatrical presentations, Sound and Pixel can train your team!
