The Director and Sound

Successful performance requires a lot of work on music and sounds, and directors should understand the basics of music theory and its application in performance production. 

This course will introduce you to the musical elements used by musicians to create a piece of music. 

With this knowledge, you will be able to translate what you hear into words and make music work for your play.
