Add Multi-Platinum experience to your Recording Arts / Music Production program with Alan Parsons on your team!

[In light of the current health emergency, where students are not able to be on campus, we are offering online access free of charge to the full video series on a special web page linked to their school. Schools who have already purchased the Education License or complete Music Production Curriculum can also apply to us for individual installs on student computers.

The information below remains correct and current with the exception of this development.]

The Educational License installs the full 10 hours of our award-winning Alan Parsons’ Art & Science Of Sound Recording video series in a custom browser on individual student workstations. This is now the focal point of our new complete Music Production Curriculum.

This unique body of work is then available to your students in a fast, accessible format, tailor-made for learning.

The Music Production Curriculum is an integrated suite of materials comprising video for students to watch, audio files for them to reference and work on, and lesson plans and a hardback printed book for instructors. Click here to download our new Educational Brochure.

How do you view the videos?

The Educational License is installed locally, on each student laptop or workstation in your lab. The 24 individual videos can be viewed in the custom video browser or full screen. Students can scroll through the videos, and even through to the individual scene sub-sections, instantaneously. It's high speed and high quality.


Students can use the browser links to the main ASSR website, forums, and a new Student Center portal, which provides access to bonus materials such as uncompressed audio files, documents, lists and links, educational pricing on recording equipment, as well as access to the 24 Section Quizzes—one 10-point Quiz per video ‘Section.’

Instructors can view Quiz results with multiple viewing options: an individual Quiz, an individual student or the performance of the class as a whole.

Access to the Student Center is provided entirely free of charge to all students within an academic institution purchasing the ASSR Education License for the first calendar year. An annual admin fee to cover access to the online bonus materials may be purchased for just $299.

  • Who is the Music Production Curriculum suitable for?

    High School (aged 15+) and on through college. With the increased availability of media arts and technology courses at 2-year and 4-year colleges, plus the continued success of independent training centers and career schools, it has become increasingly important for global standards to be established in digital audio recording practices.

    Do you run a course on video, performance arts, TV and film, game design? A working knowledge of audio and recording technology is at the very least a valuable asset. It could possibly make the difference between a job, an internship, or 'back home' once their course has ended.

    About Session Files

    Session Files. Session Files are raw multitracks recorded at our Master Class Training Sessions. Each session is produced by Alan Parsons and features A-list session players or professional bands. In addition to the 88.2kHz/24-bit wave files, each Session File includes its own track sheet with information about mics and processing, custom photos taken on the day, and guerrilla video. Session Files are a key component of the Music Production Curriculum but can also be used independently as general 'source material' for students to study in their own time, remix and learn from. One Session File is All Our Yesterdays, the featured song on the Art & Science Of Sound Recording videos.
