J275 Intro to Audio

Intro to Audio teaches students the skills needed to tell stories in sound.  You’ll learn how to write for the ear; how to use words economically and powerfully; how to conduct an effective interview; how to gather quality sound in the field; how to deliver a spoken script professionally; how to assemble and mix audio stories; how to edit and work with editors; and how to have fun with sound!

Students produce their own hands-on weekly radio show broadcast on KALX (90.7 FM) and add real-life pieces to their CV.  Many stories from this award-winning radio series have been re-broadcast on stations and podcasts across the country.
