Why Point Blank Music School?

HERE ARE SEVEN GOOD REASONS...

While the world is compromised with Coronavirus, Point Blank has made extra efforts to ensure as far as possible that our students experience the same fab student life in the virtual world as they do on campus. You will see that our student experience is unrivalled which is why we scored 84% for overall satisfaction in the NSS (National Student Survey).

Virtual classroom

WEEKLY INTERACTIVE LECTURES

Every week at the scheduled time of your lecture, exactly as if you were attending on campus, an expert lecturer will take you through the week's syllabus topics, explaining exercises, general content, assignments and areas for discussion. Your Virtual Classroom, which takes place within Point Blank's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), enables you to understand the week's curriculum and to interact with your lecturer and classmates. Breakout 1-2-1 sessions can also take place between you and lecturer or smaller peer groups during this time. There is one Virtual Classroom lecture per week for each module you are taking.

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 REMOTELY AND ON CAMPUS

We know that students enjoy studio/private practice time - Studio Lab Time - on campus supported by our Studio Lab Technicians, and inline with the latest government measures regarding lockdown we are providing this service on campus from July, following strict social distancing and safety protocol. We also provide the same service remotely throughout the year. 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

This is personal, supported Studio Lab Time. Students can book a session with a Studio Lab Technician via the VLE. 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 at home. This is of course in addition to the usual exclusive discounts and offers we provide. We keep you updated via regular student newsletters.

Point Blank Recordings

IN-HOUSE RECORD LABEL

A&R'd by Kwame Kwaten (Ferocious Talent CEO / Co-Director Cre8ing Vision & Ultimate Seminar / Brit Awards Trustee / Mobo Awards Trustee and successful record producer and artist manager), Point Blank students benefit from 1-2-1 mentoring/A&R sessions with Kwame to help develop their music and create avenues into production, remix, artist and writing work. This year has seen collaborations between PB students and Ultra Nate, Kathy Sledge, and Kym Mazelle in a series matching house legends with our alumni. We've also teed up a series of releases for 2020 starting with a remake of "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac in June.
