Hi! My name is David O'Leary and I am the founder and owner of The School of Sound. I come with over 20 years experience in the world of audio visual and sound engineering which has included working for Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, night clubs both at home in Ireland and internationally.
My educational background includes a Batchelor of Science First Class Honours Degree in Entertainment Systems with multiple certificates and diplomas from the world renowned City & Guilds Institute, as well as certifications from Infocomm, Crestron, Audinate, Avid etc. etc.
My music background began when I started to play drums as a 16 year old, getting my first radio play on Irelands national broadcaster, 2fm, at 18. In the years since I have drummed through numerous bands as well as acquiring a new skill set when I fell in love with a pair of Technic 1210 mk III's. In the studio, my productions have seen sales throughout the world as well gaining additional radio play at home and abroad.
My professional career has brought me the experience of working with world class production companies, travelling across Ireland, to the UK, Europe and Australia. As a project manager I have managed multi million Euro and Dollar installations of high end audio visual equipment such as Barco, Shure, Sennheiser, Crestron, Extron etc.
Now, having completed my degree in computer science and entertainment systems, I'm bringing that wealth of knowledge and experience to you. I hope you enjoy learning from me!
