Sound Design

An exploration of theatrical sound design and engineering, this class will explore sound for both theater and music theater. We will investigate text from the point of view of sound, and learn how to communicate the ideas, palette and arc of a design to others. We will explore developing a creative process and turning our ideas into sounds that can be used onstage.

Led by Robert Kaplowitz, winner of the 2012 TONY Award for Best Sound Design for Fela! and Jessica Paz, winner of the 2019 TONY award for Best Sound Design in a Musical for Hadestown.
