I learned to be a great assistant engineer from Tom
He's the Best! I went on to a successful 35-year career in Professional Audio
Worked for SSL, Studer and many world-class Studios around the world.
I owe my success to what I learned from Tom back in the 80's
You will not go wrong reading Tom's books or attend his lectures.
If you don't learn how to be a great Engineer from Tom
Then you were asleep or you should choose another Profession.
