Master Class Training Sessions are live events where Attendees get hands-on, interactive instruction from Alan Parsons on the 'art and science' of sound recording. They follow similar themes to the Art And Science Of Sound Recording videos but as live events they are more in-depth and offer the chance to actually work with Alan Parsons.
MCTS sessions are held in recording studios around the world, including at Alan’s own studio ParSonics in Santa Barbara, CA, and comprise one or two day events
Due to the current health situation our live master classes have been postponed but we held a wonderful Online Master Class on Mixing, July 29th, and you can read the report here. Please sign up to be notified of future classes, both in-person and online, and we hope to have you join our growing and distinguished list of alumni and see you at a future event.
