Having the opportunity to learn sound engineering at BIMM is a really great experience, I get to try out all sorts of industry-standard equipment and software, and meet some of the big names in the industry like Rick Snoman; Despite all the cultural differences, I’ve never felt left out, all the tutors and friends I’ve met at BIMM are really friendly!
