Bio and Customer Feedback
I have been working in television, film, theater and in recording studios for over 25 years.
My career began in Orlando, Florida
as an assistant to the Music Producer and then as part of the audio crew for 3-1/2 seasons of “The Mickey Mouse Club” with Keri Russel, JC Chasez, Deedee Lynn Magno Hall, Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and Britney Spears.
I also served as the Music and Claymation Coordinator for “Adventures in
Wonderland” with Elisabeth Harnois, as well as being the Field Mixer/Boom Operator for many different
Disney productions including the Christmas and Easter Parades, Wheel of Fortune, Regis and Kathy Lee, Disney World 20th Anniversary, Bryant Gumbel Celebrity/Amateur Golf UNCF Golf Tournament, Goofy Games, Full House, Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, American Teacher Awards, Hurricane Andrew benefit on Big Thunder Mountain, Walt Disney World Marathon.
In Nashville I
was an assistant engineer at two recording studios, Ocean
Way and Sony Tree Demo Studios with Brooks and Dunn, Martina McBride. I mixed live TV
shows at the local WB affiliate and was the Field Mixer/Boom Operator on many
shoots for Jim Owens Productions/TNN.
Those included covering various country artists at the Grand Old Opry and
various country concerts, music videos, Fan Fair and other events such as Doug Stone, Mary Wells, Crystal Gayle, Crook and Chase, Today's Country, This Week in Country, Vince Gill, Jo Dee Messina, Clint Black, Neal McCoy and Diamond Rio. I was also an audio assistant for Opryland
Productions working on concerts at the Grand
in Rising Sun, Indiana.
Since moving to Boise
I have been a Field Mixer/Boom Operator on various shoots including: the 2009
Special Olympics, shows for WE, NBC, Lifetime, A&E, AMC, MTV, ESPN, TLC, audio
restoration for “BRAVO!
Common Men, UnCommon Valor”, and various commercials. I
began mixing theater in Erie, PA and continued once I moved to Idaho. I worked
at the Nampa Civic Center for five years.
My company, Larson Sound, was part of Idaho Media Professionals since its
inception in December 2007 and continued through 2014, serving as Treasurer and
Membership Coordinator. In 2012 and 2013 I taught audio workshops at the CWI-Expand
your Horizons event. I’ve also trained multiple churches in audio. I am a member of both Women’s Audio Mission
and Sound Girls.org. I have my Pro Tools© 8 Music and Post certification.
I currently use Pro Tools 12.
the last few years I have been mixing 2 concerts a year for Bobbie Pearce and
the Junior Jammers. In 2012 and 2016 I was the Field Mixer/Boom Operator for
the Forestry Service on two Staff Rides in the Salmon/Challis National Forest.
in 2009 I was hired by Healthwise to produce, record and edit their medical
audio library which was being re-recorded. I produced over 400 hours of medical
scripts. That got me thinking about audio books. In 2016 I produced my first
book for Conda V. Douglas, a local author. We have since done 2 other books
together. In 2017 my husband and I built
a studio for me to record here at home.
I do have the ability to go mobile but prefer to record in my studio.

July 2013 Chris, Sharon, Bob, Bob, Ron, and Mark and the entire
personal plus staff:
I just received the elevation sheet back from Celebrate
Life Church. I also spoke with Dave
Keller over the phone. I wanted to pass
on his compliments to our Staff.
Celebration Life Church is extremely happy with the Auditorium
Staff. They said that Sharon and Chris
assist their band and pastor so much, they could not do it without them. They are always professional and willing to
help out anytime. Dave said the band
sounds amazing with Sharon and Chris doing the sound!
They also said thanks to the floor staff members who make
the coffee and make sure the rooms are set and ready when they arrive. They also said that the staff is always
helpful and have a smile on their faces.
They are extremely happy to be here and have just booked
another 6 months at the Civic Center.
Thank you to all, we could not keep such a large church
group without the Teamwork of our entire Staff.
Some very kind words for the three of you. Thank you for making their stay here pleasant! It is appreciated.

Subject: Little Shop of Horrors THANK YOU
On behalf of the cast and crew of the
recent production of Music Theatre of Idaho's "Little Shop of Horrors"
and myself I simply wanted to say thank you. We could not have had
the successful production we did without you and the staff of the Civic
Center, as well as your facilities. I could not have been happier with
how things went and how intricately involved or essential your staff
and the Civic Center plays in each and every
one of our productions. But from me personally I needed you to hear
and see in writing how thankful I am. I always am but this time in
particular I needed more from the NCC and I received it in vast
The regular staff on the floor, the
office and the auxiliary were fabulous as always and they were extremely
helpful and compliant with huge smiles on their faces. But even more
I must throw my extreme and special thanks to three others as well as
they did more than usual and beyond the call of duty. I know it may not
be unusual of them to perform this way but I especially appreciated it
and I need to acknowledge it to you. You
may already know this about them but this is my time to brag. Chris
Talbot, Sharon Larson, and Patricia Walker White are stars in my book
and I will forever be grateful for their hard and diligent work with
encouraging attitudes. They were positive and innovative
at all times. Not only did they ask what they could do, they solved
problems and took it steps further, foreseeing the inevitable. They
encouraged my cast and crew and made the run of the show possible and
fun. They allowed me as a director to direct the
show and worry about other things as a director should because they had
handled the other issues. They allowed me to do my job and have a show
run as it should for each and every one of the patrons that attended.
We could not have done it without them and
I consider them and you as a part of the team and crew that made the

Martin M. Jones Motion Picture and Sound
The shoot is over. Was just fantastic. Dave Butler, (camera man and has his own motion picture company), is not only a fantastic cam man but a great DP as well. Sharon Larson of Larson Sound, (specializing in audio books and recording on set), was and is a very fun person to be around, along with being one of the best in the industry. Our talent hired was great on set with special thanks to Kaylee Morrison, a great actress and singer. Our client for demo reel, Jonathan Sherr, made this job a dream job and is such a pro, it made our work easy. Lots of laughs and will post lots of photos and video clips today. Have to move everything back into place and clean talent and crew house. Work is never done!
Sharon Larson is one hell of a sound person. She has been on many sets including the Disney ones and in fact, recorded Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Christina A. on the Mickey Mouse shows. Never gets frazzled, always focused and possibly the lowest cost member of our crew as she eats Oreos for breakfast. Gotta love that!
James Brown, Nampa Civic Center
Thank you for doing this. I appreciate what you do for the
You’re great to work with.
See you later this afternoon.
Lance Thompson, President, Idaho Media Professionals
“Sharon Larson is an experienced,
well-prepared, thoroughly professional sound engineer. She performed
these services at several shoots and functions for Idaho Media
Professionals, and her work was flawless. Additionally, as treasurer of
IMP, she capably handled the many demanding bookkeeping, web
development and administrative duties without complaint, and was a
tremendous asset to the organization. Sharon is a total pro.”
Tom Hamilton, Production 101 Workshop Attendee 2010
first of all, I am glad you could read my handwriting enough that the
email actually made it to me. Not only am I impressed on your knowledge
of sound, you must have great skills in deciphering uncommon written
languages as well.
Thanks for the wrap up and info, I learned a lot through
the workshop and will continue to show up at the other workshops that I
am able to attend. It was a great introduction and I look forward to
the upcoming events. Hope it was worthwhile for you as well, it is
always great to be able to speak with someone with your knowledge and
feel that they enjoy sharing that knowledge while teaching you.
Betty K. Rodgers, Co-Producer of "Bravo! Common Men, Uncommon Valor"
Thank you for all that you have shared about the art of
filming recently. It is gratifying as “newbies” to be
mentored at a time in our lives when we do a lot of mentoring ourselves in our
own areas of expertise.
At any rate, we would be very interested, not only in the
info you are putting together to send out, but also in the list of consignment
websites you trust. At this point we don’t have any idea how much
we will be hiring vs how much we will do ourselves, but we don’t want to
rule out any possibilities.
We bought a domain name for it yesterday, so here we go!
Suzanne Richiardone, Producer Pangolin Pictures, "Secret Lives of Women"
Sharon, Thanks for
sending your invoice. It was great working with you too! We appreciate your help
and hard work. I think that everything we shot in Boise will be great. Thanks for
letting us know your schedule. We'll definitely let you know if we need sound
when we return!
