Our alumnus Tushar Verma was kind enough to write a small piece about his experience at Gray Spark Audio & Sound Engineering Academy. We believe this will help a lot of prospective students understand what being a part of the academy is really like. He wrote about his journey through the nine modules. This guest post documents his transition from an engineering graduate to a professional acoustician. He is currently pursuing a Msc. in Engineering Acoustics at the Technical University of Denmark.
Here's what he had to say:
Before joining the Academy, I had many misconceptions about the industry. I thought that since I was coming from an engineering background, the course would be really easy. Moreover, owing to our flawed educational system, I had become accustomed to fooling examiners by adding unnecessary theoretical fluff instead of real technical answers. I was so disillusioned by this entire process that my perspective towards the course was that it would just be another degree to boast about. Little did I know that my preconceived notions were going to be shattered, not just in terms of sound, but also in terms of my work ethic.
