Radio & Audio Academy launched

Twenty radio industry professionals have joined forces to offer “extensive training in radio broadcasting and audio engineering”.

In forming the Radio & Audio Academy, experienced broadcaster Peter Stanton aims to provide a value-for-money, yet effective, vehicle for turning peoples’ radio dreams into reality. “Whether it’s the teenager aspiring to a career in radio or someone already in the industry who feels they’d like to “brush up,” the RAA makes quality instruction very accessible.”

RAA is offering an 18-week intensive course, one night per week, designed to teach on most aspects of the radio/audio industry. Instruction will be a balance of theory and hands-on experience, using the facilities of FM103.2.

RAA Principal, Peter Stanton, has extensive experience in ABC, commercial and community broadcasting, and has assembled a group of similarly qualified professionals to provide high quality instruction in announcing, audio engineering, programming, sales, research, writing and media law.

Among them are Kel Richards (ABC radio & television and commercial radio); John O’Donnell (highly respected commercial radio programmer and announcer); Roger Climpson (Seven Network); Matt Wills & Juliette Jordan (sought-after voice-over talents); John Brennan (commercial radio programmer); and Greg Allen (Commercial & Christian radio announcer).

The RAA course begins in July and is limited to 25 students, “allowing close individual attention and assessment.” At the conclusion students will have a professionally produced audition CD to send to prospective employers and assistance in making contacts.
