Mix it with the Best of them

It is no coincidence that ASE is owned and run by the team of individuals that pioneered sound engineering education in South Africa. The ASE team launched and ran the first (and largest) national network of sound engineering schools in the country and is directly responsible for the qualification of over 4000 qualified sound engineers. Many of the graduates taught by ASE's management hold premier sound engineering posts all over the world, including Australia, the USA and the United Kingdom. This talented team, through the establishment of ASE, has now brought South Africa into a new era of audio training: an era in which sound engineering training is made more focused, more professional and more practical for the more discerning student - the student who is truly passionate about Sound Engineering.
