Welcome to The Nerdy Professor. Our goal and mission is to provide you with easy to understand, easy to follow training videos to help you bridge that gap that lies between technology and art. I hope that by the end of this course, technology becomes an extension of your creativity.
I love Sound Design for the theatre. I love the subtle environmental soundscapes that live under a scene. I love musical transitions that push us from one moment to the next. I love the artistry it takes to inspire and evoke the imagination of an audience.
The craft of Sound Design has shifted over the last couple of decades as the technology has made the subtleties of the art form easier to control. This is especially true with programs like QLab, a playback control software created for live performances and environments.
But because any technology can have a steep learning curve, and you really don’t want the technology to be a hindrance between you and your vision, we’ve created this course, specifically geared towards QLab’s audio tools.
All of our courses are segmented into smaller pieces. Once you’re finished with a lesson, hit the complete button near the bottom of this page. After watching the video, scroll down to find a corresponding assignment, quiz, or challenge. Finish all the lessons and quizzes and I’ll even give you a nerdy certificate.
But all of this is meant to be done at your pace and for your pleasure. If you’re already familiar with a lesson or a chapter doesn’t pertain to you, feel free to skip ahead. If you find a concept or topic difficult, feel free to stop and review that portion of the course. Either way, I hope that these lessons and activities are in invaluable in your journey.
