Classes and Education
At MC Audio, we believe knowing how to use your equipment is just as important as buying the right gear. Because of this, MC Audio offers several free, weekly classes right at the store. Whether you're long-mixing from a computer with CD players, or scratching completely analog on vinyl, we're here to help.
We offer the following free classes each week:
