Former Rush producer Terry Brown will be hosting a full-day Sound Recording Master Class Workshop at Phase One Studio in Toronto on Saturday March 25th with the David Barrett Trio (aka DB3) and Michael Sadler (Saga), whom Terry began working with last year. DB3 is a Toronto-based instrumental trio that had their first two albums produced by Alex Lifeson, and recently recruited Sadler to provide some vocals. From the Facebook event details:

This is a full day master class with legendary record producer Terry Brown. Terry will go through the entire recording process at Phase One studios in Toronto, with David Barrett Trio featuring Michael Sadler (Saga). The day will start with a meet and greet at 11am followed by microphone placement, bed tracks, overdubs, and finally the mixing process. All attendees will be in the control room with Terry and have a hands on experience as we finish a song from front to back. An informal Q&A session with Terry entitled "I Read My Brother's Book" will take place followed by a nightime reception with an in studio performance by David Barrett Trio and Michael Sadler. This event will be fully catered.

The book Terry will be reading from is titled Are We Still Rolling? Studios, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll - One Man's Journey Recording Classic Albums and was written by his brother Phil back in 2011. Terry posted a 4-minute video preview of the workshop to Facebook a couple of weeks ago (thanks RushFanForever) where he explains how the idea for the workshop came to fruition, along with what he hopes to accomplish with it. The workshop will be limited to 18 participants and tickets can be obtained via
