On July 22-23, 2011, multi-Platinum producer/engineer/artist Alan Parsons will present the first U.S. Master Class Training Session (MCTS) in Los Angeles, at which a select group of attendees will make a record with Parsons and first-call session musicians at The Village.

The Level 3 (advanced) Master Class Training Session will comprise a live tracking session including piano, guitar and keyboard overdubs, lead and backing vocals, and a mix. This intensive two-day workshop expands upon many of the techniques and practices shown in Parsons’ groundbreaking Art & Science Of Sound Recording video series.

The cost for the Los Angeles MCTS is $1,950 per person ($1,750 with student ID). The Los Angeles MCTS is limited to just 25 seats and with pre-registrations already in place, early sign-ups are highly recommended for this unique event.

Attendees will observe and also participate in all aspects of a professional recording session, from setting up a live tracking session to working on a final mix. Stages include miking drums and piano, getting optimum separation, general mic selection, recording keyboard and guitar overdubs, recording lead and backing vocals. Everything from EQ to compression to effects will be covered.

Attendees will be working alongside some of L.A.'s top session musicians, many of whom worked alongside Alan on the Art & Science Of Sound Recording series, including guitarist Tim Pierce (Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Crowded House).

At the end of this intensive two-day workshop, attendees will take away a mix of the track they have been working on. They will also have the opportunity to take away the session file for further inspection after the event.

The full timetable, additional information and registration are available on the A.S.S.R. Website.
