Sound Engineering
Supreme Course. Duration-1 year

Sound Engineering is a combination of creativity combined with proper technical knowledge. Technicality can be learnt through obtaining a degree in sound engineering but creativity comes through ‘practical observation’ and hours of discussions with the teacher, who is a guiding light for the students. Keeping this in mind, AK Studios started sound – engineering classes where students can operate the system for 24x7 and also involve themselves in the mixing and dubbing of various projects of AK studio including films and advertisements, under the able guidance of Mr. Kedar Athavle. We also have ‘accommodation’ services for students from outside the city. Though there is no affiliation to any university, our unique way of teaching has lead many students to become professional sound engineers. No specific requirement is needed for this course, all you need is a passion for sound!
