Underlining the continued diversification of the AIR Entertainment Group, the new AIR Training Division will undertake a guitar recording masterclass at the Lyndhurst Hall, London, facility on 26/27 November.
Covering the techniques and processes required to obtain professional, studio-quality guitar recordings across a broad range of genres, the masterclass will be led by producer Tony Platt, AIR Studios’ Rupert Coulson and Pro Tools specialist Rob Kelly.
Guest lecturer will be Professor Dave Fisher, former director of Tonmeister Studies at the University of Surrey, while there will also be performances, demonstrations and Q&A sessions featuring celebrated guitarists Elliott Randall (Steely Dan, The Blues Brothers), Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music, Brian Eno) and Leo Abrahams (Imogen Heap, Paul Simon).
Richard Boote, chairman of AIR Entertainment Group, commented: “AIR Studios is known throughout the world as the place that leading musicians choose to create and record their music. This course and those that follow are designed to share the recording expertise we have in-house, as well as the views and experiences of other respected producers, engineers and musicians, with people that have an interest in sound recording or music production. This is the very first time that AIR Studios has opened its doors to the general public for this type of event and we anticipate a tremendous response.”
The course costs £450 per person, which includes lunch and light refreshments, a goody bag, and a daily prize draw offering attendees the chance to win some products courtesy of partners Avid, Hughes & Kettner, PRS Guitars, sE and Waves. The draw also includes two B+W Zeppelin AIR iPod docks.
