Veteran mix engineers Jim Yakabuski and Tyler Beemer have announced the launch of The MIX Institute, a Greenville, SC-based audio school focused on helping students become better live music mixers.
The new organization’s first one-day, eight-hour workshop — entitled “The Top 5 Things You Can Do To Improve Your Mix Right Now” — is scheduled for Saturday, August 22 (2020) at Brushy Creek Baptist Church in Easley, SC. The MIX Institute partners with host churches to teach live mixing techniques to house of worship audio engineers, their production teams and anyone else who would like to attend.
Students will learn from Parnelli Award-winning concert front of house engineer (and Live Sound/Church Sound/PSW author) Jim Yakabuski, who’s list of recent clients includes Gwen Stefani, Peter Frampton, Matchbox 20, Journey and Van Halen. He’s also spent years in the house of worship audio world teaching audio teams tips and techniques, acquired during a career coming up on 40 years. Co-founder of Tyler Beemer, an upstate SC worship music mixer, shares a similar passion for teaching worship techs the “tricks of the mixing trade.”
