Why Point Blank London?

HERE ARE SEVEN 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.

BLENDING LEARNING

WEEKLY INTERACTIVE LECTURES

Point Blank gives you options for your learning experience. We encourage students to attend classes on campus, and for those who can't, 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.

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. 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. This is a genuine opportunity for students to get signed and work in the industry while studying with us. Find out more about Kwame and hear students' feedback on the mentoring sessions here.
