In The Studio With MJ 2022
You know Michael Jackson, but do you really know what it was like to work with him?
I first met Michael in 1984, during a project called "Captain EO". Little did I know back then that over the next 18 years I would spend countless hours with him working on projects like "Bad", "Dangerous" and "HIStory".
Neverland Valley Ranch.
He was my boss.
He was my client.
He was like no one I have met.
His name is Michael Jackson, and I'd like to introduce you to him.
I was Michael's Technical Director for many years, working side-by-side with him and the team in the studio. During my seminar I take my guests through a music-filled journey, allowing you to come into the studio and hear how these records came to life.
These mammoth projects (including production, tour-prep and countless remixes) took upwards of 16 months each. You will see and hear what it was like to be in the studio with Michael and the team of engineers and producers who created these songs, through a carefully crafted timeline of music, video and behind-the-scenes info. From "Captain Eo" to "Man In The Mirror" to "Smile".
Did Michael drive himself, or show up in a limo?
Why did the projects take so long?
How many were recorded?
Were there special guests?
What were most days like?
Who wrote the songs?
The multi-media seminar features many new segments, music and video to bring you into the studio like you never thought was possible.
VIP Listening Session / Just Another Day
Friday 12pm - 7pm
Start the weekend off right - in the studio for a very special afternoon VIP listening session of songs and mixes like you have never heard them! Mid-afternoon I will present our new "Just Another Day" segment, featuring all new behind-the-scenes footage and stories. It's a non-stop day with Michael starting with a tour of Neverland and then peeking in on several iconic sessions in the studio. Trust me - you will see and hear things you have never seen or heard before!

The all-day seminar has grown significantly over the years, and I am so excited to present the full 2022 version for you! Go deep into the songs, the songwriting, the recording techniques, the production teams and day-to-day life "In The Studio With MJ".
Mixing and Stories With Brian Vibberts

Seven-time Grammy Winner Brian Vibberts will take you through the steps of mixing a Michael Jackson song, along with a treasure chest of stories from his countless sessions with Michael, Mariah Carey, Billy Joel, Green Day, Chic Corea and many more! You will laugh while you learn from one of the masters of the music industry!
Truly a very unique experience for Michael’s fans, as well as those who love music and want to peek “behind the curtain”.
“Brad’s seminars offer a fascinating, eye (and ear)-opening experience, in which genuine insights about Michael Jackson as an artist, a person and a friend, are revealed. I thoroughly enjoyed the warm, conversational approach and the deep well of materials. There were several goosebump moments. Brad puts you right there, inside the studio in those eras, and shows how the magic was made. I couldn’t recommend it more to both fans of Jackson and anyone who cares about music.”Brad’s seminars offer a fascinating, eye (and ear)-opening experience, in which genuine insights about Michael Jackson as an artist, a person and a friend, are revealed.
