Why Point Blank London?

HERE ARE SIX GOOD REASONS...

Point Blank makes significant efforts in ensuring that your student experience will be the best it can possibly be. You will see that our student experience is unrivalled, which is why students rated us one of the highest ranked independent music schools for student satisfaction in the NSS (National Students Survey) 2021.

1-2-1 Live Tutorials

PERSONAL TUITION TIME

This is your chance to have the undivided attention of your lecturer and can be used to clarify elements of the course such as your assignment tasks and to get advice on your work and studies from an expert. You can book up to five of these sessions per week subject to availability. This is a great way to maximise your relationship with your lecturer and the course in general.

STUDIO LAB TIME

STUDIO SUPPORT AVAILABLE

We know that you enjoy studio/private practice time - Studio Lab Time - on campus supported by our Studio Lab Technicians. We can also provide the same service remotely if face-to-face teaching is interrupted.  You can get support on all elements of production including:

  • Setting up gear/DAW
  • DAW/Software usage
  • Composition techniques
  • Structure and arrangement
  • Mixing/balancing/bouncedown
  • Mastering
  • Feedback on your tracks, music business projects or radio shows

Personal, supported Studio Lab Time is something we are very proud to be offering our students. You can book a session with a Studio Lab Technician via the VLE, it's that easy. Sessions can be booked in one hour blocks but can run longer than this subject to availability. In addition, we are working closely with industry partners to provide you with the best software to use whilst studying. This is of course in addition to the usual exclusive discounts and offers we provide. We'll keep you updated via regular student newsletters, so watch out for those.
