LIVE 1-2-1 LESSONS

PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION TIME

1-2-1s are your chance to have the undivided attention of your instructor or a dedicated staff member. They're private lessons which can be used to clarify elements of the course such as your assignment tasks and to get advice on your musical work and studies from an expert. You can book up to three of these sessions per term in weeks 3, 6, and 9. Our 1-2-1s are a great way to maximize your relationship with your instructor, your course, and Point Blank in general.
