Time + Trust + Action = Good Youth
January 2016: we were able to take one of our young aspiring sound engineers with us to NAMM in Anaheim CA.

In two days we were able to visit specific areas of the trade show and have our subject spend time with Industry Pro’s. Our subject is now spending one day a week at Tao Creative in Los Angeles learning Sound Design and working with Industry Professionals.
Time + Dedication + Action = Good Mentors
