Kyle P. Snyder, a Lecturer in Ohio University’s School of Media Arts & Studieswas recently named Chair of the Audio Engineering Society Eduction Committee. Snyder was appointed to this position at the 139th AES Convention by AES President, John Krivit.
Snyder is excited to continue in his international service to the AES as Education Chair. According to Snyder, “the AES is home to engineers working in every aspect of audio and it’s incumbent upon us as educators to ensure we’re training students who are prepared to enter the new media economy. With more media created every day that requires high-quality audio, the AES remains a fantastic way for students to develop in their careers outside of the classroom.”
As Education Chair, Snyder’s duties include setting the multi-faceted and diverse agenda of student & career tracks for conventions and working with local, professional, and student sections worldwide to enhance their educations. Snyder will continue his work with the AES Student Delegate Assembly, comprised of delegate leaders representing more than 4,000 students worldwide, ensuring emerging engineers’ needs are met through enriching, educational experiences within the AES.
Snyder routinely teaches courses in music production, recording, mixing and mastering, critical listening, sound design for film and video, and live event production in the School of Media Arts & Studies and brings his long-standing commitment to audio education to both the classroom and his international leadership role within the Audio Engineering Society.
