Introduction

Each student must have an expressed desire to become a professional in the live event business and be prepared to observe and learn in the working environment.  To be clear, this is not a hands-on opportunity; instead, we will be in the field during the construction, operation and deconstruction phases of some of the world’s most prolific touring artists, in some of the worlds most iconic locations, followed by more formal, classroom style reviews of the experiences.  We believe learning in this manner connects the dots to what the students will observe and provides a real-life immersion into the environment and rigors of the schedule.
