Allen & Heath USA has announced the seventh semester of its weekly Mini Masterclass series, with the free 25-minute classes held online every Wednesday offering instructors discussing various features and products in the company’s ecosystem.
The new semester begins on Wednesday, May 11 and will include classes on advanced networking, DCAs, Dante integration, and more. Along with core instructors Mike Bangs and Samantha Potter, future sessions will also feature guest instructors from the industry and special live classes from trade events such as NAMM and InfoComm.
Each session is followed by a Q&A, giving users the chance to have their questions answered by the instructors. Created in November 2020 and now totaling more than 60 weeks of sessions, the Mini Masterclass es continue to evolve based on continual feedback from the pro audio community. The platform was recently honored with an SCN Stellar Service Award, noted as representing exceptional service and training by the readers of Systems Contractor News magazine.
“It’s been a pleasure getting a chance to teach the community about audio and integration topics,” says Potter, Allen & Heath USA manager, commercial audio. “We have a wonderful group of individuals that are excited to learn and come nearly every week. It’s a chance to show features, projects, and techniques that some people have never been exposed to. Our hope is that each person can walk away after every session with a little more knowledge.”
“One of the driving forces behind the Mini Masterclasses has always been student feedback,” adds Allen & Heath USA marketing director Jeff Hawley. “A high percentage of our sessions in the past have come directly from requests for more details about technology X or protocol Y — or perhaps a deeper dive into a topic that we covered in an earlier session. Rather than our sales and marketing team figuring out what we want to teach, we listen and respond to what folks want to learn. This new semester is a perfect example of that approach in action.”
“The Mini Masterclass series has been an incredibly fun way to connect with and tap into our most valuable resource, our users,” concludes Allen & Heath USA live sound and touring manager Mike Bangs.
