Exclusive Features for students

Point Blank is proud to be ahead of the curve in delivering a fantastic student experience, whether on campus or online. During lockdown (and importantly, after the pandemic too) we are happy to provide our students with all the exclusive features listed here.

Overview

If you're aged 11 to 17 and want to go deeper into your music, come and spend five days – Monday through Friday – in our Music Production Summer School course. Taught at Point Blank's studios with an expert professional music producer, you'll learn how to create tracks to a high standard using the Ableton Live 10 Suite at an Ableton Certified Training Center. Our fully-trained team of studio experts have worked with artists including Daft Punk, Skrillex, Crystal Method, Pharrell, and more. So whatever style of music you are into, they can guide you through the skills and techniques you need. Each student gets to work on their own workstation and class sizes are strictly limited to ensure plenty of personal 1-2-1 instruction and guidance. Watch the videos below to find out more about Point Blank and this course!
