Why Point Blank Los Angeles?

HERE ARE SEVEN GREAT REASONS...

All of our excellent classes in music production, DJ performance, audio engineering, sound design, singing, songwriting, and music industry studies are now available for in-person attendance at our amazing facilities in mid-city Los Angeles. Please call an Admissions Advisor at (323) 594-8740 or Contact Us for more information. And keep reading for seven great reasons to study at Point Blank:

GLOBAL ALUMNI, GLOBAL SUCCESS

GLOBAL ALUMNI, GLOBAL SUCCESS

From headlining DJs and superstar vocalists to hit-making producers and industry heavyweights, alumni from Point Blank's global network of schools count as some of the biggest names in modern music, with the likes of Leona Lewis, Pete Tong, Nicole Moudaber, Claude VonStroke, and Aluna Francis having all studied at Point Blank schools around the world.

STUDIO LAB TIME

STUDIO SUPPORT AVAILABLE ON CAMPUS AND REMOTELY

Point Blank students enjoy booking private practice time ("Studio Lab Time") in our on-campus studios supported by our administrative team, and we provide this service throughout each term while classes are in session. We also provide the same service remotely throughout the year through online support sessions. During your Studio Lab Time booking or Online Support Session, you can get support on all aspects of music production, including but not limited to:

  • Hardware & software setup
  • Using your DAW & equipment
  • Composition and arrangement 
  • Mixing & mastering your tracks
  • Receiving track feedback

These are personal, supported Studio Lab Time bookings (usually 3.5 hours) and Online Support Sessions (usually 30 minutes) which enrolled students can book directly through their Point Blank Dashboard or by emailing the Music School Manager. In addition, we work closely with industry partners to provide our enrolled students with exclusive partner discounts on the best software and software to use while studying and making music at home and professionally. 

OPEN FORUM FRIDAYS

SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTION TIME

Open Forum Fridays is an initiative designed by Point Blank to promote academic success and give you ample support outside of class. Each Friday from 12pm-2pm (while classes are in session) all enrolled students are invited to campus to work directly with key Point Blank instructors and dedicated staff members, receiving their undivided attention individually and/or in small groups. Similar to "office hours" with instructors, Open Forum Fridays create a space in which students can share their music, receive feedback, ask questions, clarify elements of coursework, and get advice from experts. Open Forum Fridays are a great way to develop and maximize your relationships with your instructors, your courses, and Point Blank in general.

Guest Appearances, Deconstructions, Performances & Socials

EXTRA EVENTS AND SERVICES 

It’s more important than ever to stay connected with each other, and so Point Blank continues to provide a range of extra-curricular activities for our students including:

  • In-person and online masterclasses
  • Open Forum Fridays
  • Industry Mentoring Sessions
  • Online track deconstructions
  • Web-based skills workshops
  • DJ and performance sets

Point Blank Recordings

IN-HOUSE RECORD LABEL & INDUSTRY MENTORING SESSIONS

In addition to our educational programs, we are also home to the in-house label Point Blank Recordings, which is A&R'd by Kwame Kwaten, a Brit Awards Trustee, Mobo Awards Trustee, Ferocious Talent CEO, and successful record producer and artist manager. Point Blank students benefit from 1-2-1 Mentoring Sessions with Kwame to evaluate their music for release on our label, help develop their music, and create avenues into production, remix, artist development, and writing work. Our label has fostered collaborations between PB students and Ultra Nate, Kathy Sledge, and Kym Mazelle in a series matching house legends with our alumni. Point Blank Recordings has also had series of successful releases in recent years, which all started in 2020 with Vivienne Chi & Harry Shadow's hit remake of "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac. For students capable of producing music at the highest level, this is a genuine opportunity to get signed and get their music heard in the industry as a direct result of studying at Point Blank. Find out more about Kwame, hear students' feedback, and learn more about the Industry Mentoring Sessions here.
