The Mixing & Mastering Award is an excellent three month package for more advanced producers who want to be able to complete the recording process independently. A good mix can lift your tracks and learning how to master them yourself will put you in an even stronger position - without being reliant on other sound engineers. You can mix your own track and master your own six track EP as part of this course. To meet the entry requirements you will need to have already completed the Point Blank Introduction to Music Production module or be able to demonstrate appropriate prior learning. You'll be taught by top flight industry professionals who have worked with Klaxons, Bloc Party, Lily Allen, Mystery Jets, Tricky, Carleen Anderson, Franz Ferdinand, Rizzle Kicks, Jamelia, Gorillaz, Kasabian and more. Unlimited practice time included.
2 daytime classes (11am - 6pm) or 4 evening classes (6.30pm - 9.30pm)

Award students take two modules concurrently. Each module you take will require your attendance at either one daytime class (11am-6pm) or two evening classes (6:30pm-9:30pm) per week. Please note your classes will be scheduled before the start of each term. Call for details and to arrange times convenient for you. In addition to classes, students are expected to schedule sufficient practice time at our studio facilities each week. The studio facilities are open 7 days a week, allowing you to gain valuable studio experience and reinforcing the skills learned in class.
We host studio tours in the Orsman Road Studio Complex every Wednesday at 5:30pm and every Saturday at 12:30pm. Address: 26 Orsman Road, Hoxton, London, N1 5QJ.

There are four terms per year: January, April, July and September and you can start your course at any of these entry points.
