How speakers make sound http://ow.ly/IVUTE
Speakers (also called loudspeakers) push and pull surrounding air molecules in waves that the human ear interprets as sound. You could even say that hearing is movement detection. So what makes a speaker travel back and forth at just the right rate and distance, and how does that make sound? This animagraff made the front...

Alchemea is an organisation committed to achieving excellence in their chosen fields of education - they continuously look to improve what they offer their students. The material studied is wide ranging, and taught to satisfying depth in the areas most useful for practical application. The gear available for students to practice on is drawn from many different eras; with a number of classic and much sought after legacy units, along with some of the flashiest new studio technology money can buy. There is a large and diverse collection of microphones available, with certain higher-end models becoming available to the student as they progress along their course. The atmosphere is friendly and inspiring, that of a collection of peers working towards a shared purpose. The college attracts students from a wide range of backgrounds in musical taste and experience, which all adds to the vibrancy of the place. You know you've had a good thing when the worst part of an experience is the leaving, when it comes to an end - it sounds slightly clichéd, but this was almost universally what former students I spoke to said of their experience here.

I've studied the Pro Tools 110 and 201 short courses at Alchemea and I have only positive things to say about my experience. The facilities are top notch, the staff friendly and helpful, and this was all topped off by first class tutoring from the course leader, Neil Pickles. Definitely recommend.

The 9 months I spent there have completely changed my life. I have never learnt so much in such a short time. The best thing I enjoyed the most was that everything you learn you actually get to do in studio as well! You have so much time to spend with mixing desks, you can record your own music, your own sound library, you get access to an amazing gear and most importantly, they show you how to use it properly! In addition to this, college is open 24/7 and I loved nights spent in studio just trying things or mixing. I can highly recommend it to everyone who loves sound and music!!!

I did the Studio diploma and it was the best 9 months of my life. Amazing lecturers, great studios, tons of studio time and a curriculum that covers everything I ever wanted to know about audio...and then some. I chose Alchemea because it was the only college in London I researched that didn't have any negative reviews written about it and now I know why!

Alchemea is the best place for anyone who wants to learn about sound engineering. It's just amazing how much you learn. Both practically and theoretically you'll find more than what you look for and you'll have a very good time while doing so.
