Summer NAMM to Offer Plenty of Education Opportunities for Audio Pros

The 2019 Summer NAMM show, which is taking over the Music City Center in Nashville, TN, from July 18-20, has released its full educational schedule. Much like recent editions of NAMM’s annual winter show in California, the Summer NAMM schedule sees an increased focus on pro audio content.

The TEC Tracks program is designed to help professionals take their careers to the next level. Notable sessions will include: “Deconstructing a Mix,” where Grammy-winning engineer Craig Alvin will walk you through how he builds a hit album; “The Making of Willie Nelson's Grammy-Winning ‘My Way’" with producers Matt Rollings and Buddy Cannon and engineer Steve Chadie; “Immersive Audio and You,” which features John McBride and Greg Penny exploring the world of simulated reality and environment; and “The Pro Audio Entrepreneur Mindset” with Sean Giovanni, owner of The Record Shop Recording Studio and Production Company in Nashville.

The A3E (Advanced Audio + Applications Exchange) will present the latest technologies and ideas that are driving the evolution of, music products, pro audio, and music making. Highlights from the program range from “The Future of Production: Gamifying a Supergroup with The Fell,” to issues of rights and licensing with “Why Is Music Free and How Can We Get Back on Track” and “Data Collection Is Key to Maximizing Earnings,” as well as others.

Also, Software.NAMM, a music- and audio-software-focused exhibition area organized by the Canada-based organization IMSTA, will make its Summer NAMM debut.
