    Philip,
    Put an advert up on craigslist for a sound tech. You don't really need somebody with a ton of experience, just teachable with a good ear.
    ...Done that...and what I get is mostly DJ's and studio engineers. I have had two of the latter and that has not been of any assistance at all.

    Wow. I can combine all of that in a true story. Sort of. Back when I was young, I got contract work as a DJ working for a very smart electrical engineer who built sound systems that were far better than most of what was then available (some of that equipment is still in use long after the death of its designer/builder). I remember asking him about the differences between recording and live sound. He told me that you can't explain it that way, because you have to treat them as two completely different things. My later experience proved him right, as I have since done both things. I learned the basics of the craft of recording, and a little later got a side gig filling in for when the regular sound guy at a local bar was out of town. It was a real education, and indeed a very different thought process.

    Around the same time, I was working on a personal recording project of my own, and at one time had one of the better live sound contractors in the area come in to engineer a session. My production partner and I dragged that poor dude through the knothole, as it wasn't as easy as he expected. And this was a smart guy with a good ear and technical training.

    So, can a studio guy learn live sound? Sure. I did, and I've known a couple of recording guys who were also skilled at FOH. But yeah, you have to think the right way for each task, and it ain't the same kind of right way as for the other.

    ...You have got this right!

    As a guitar instructor, and though I have had formal instruction in "classic guitar technique", I advertise as a "finger-style guitar instructor" as I really do not consider myself as a "classical" guitarist in the true sense of the word.

    Also, I have discovered that though someone may have a lot of knowledge regarding a particular discipline, that to be able - in actual fact, to teach that particular discipline is sadly, "not necessarily so".
