Be your own sound editor!
Create the soundtrack of your dreams without tech trauma.
A straightforward step-by-step guide to editing, mixing and getting the music for your performances stage-ready, using the Audacity sound editing program.
Created by a performer, for performers.
Your soundtrack is an integral part of your act – tech trauma is not!
You don't want to spend more time editing your music than rehearsing your performance.
So let's get you all over Audacity and learn how to edit your soundtracks in super-quick time, plus add some extra sparkle ('cause you can never have too much glitter).

- importing music & sound clips into Audacity
the basics of editing multiple bits of music into one awesome track including cut & paste and fades

What do you need & what's under the glitter?
You need a computer (PC or Mac) with an internet connection and headphones or speakers. Module 1 includes links to how to download and install Audacity if you don't have it already. Each module will be delivered by email with links to all modules – so you can start at the beginning or jump in at the point that suits your skill level.

I've been a sound engineer and sound designer for 13 years. I've created soundtracks for a host of international performers including Aurora Galore (Winner "Most Innovative" Burlesque Hall of Fame 2014), Tempest Roses's House of Burlesque, tap sensation Josephine Shaker and Ginger Blush (Best UK Newcomer, London Burlesque Festival 2012). I've been Chief Sound Monkey for Mat Ricardo's London Varieties, Boom & Bang Circus, the Double R Club and countless other cabaret, variety and circus events and I've taught soundtrack creation to performers at festivals and societies around the UK. I'm pretty much the perfect person to teach you how to edit sound to create your best ever soundtrack.
