Overview

Not all DJs can produce their own music, but those who can will enjoy more opportunities throughout their career. Just ask our expert lecturers who have worked with the likes of Pharell Williams, N.E.R.D, The Black Eyed Peas, Swedish House Mafia and more.


Following an in-depth introduction to your chosen DAW (Logic Pro or Ableton), you’ll delve into other modules including Music Composition to arrange your melodies, The Music Industry to understand the business side going forward, Essential and Creative DJ Skills, The Art of Mixing and many more. You’ll have unlimited practice time in a fully stacked Pioneer DJ Studio in our state-of-the-art facilities based in Shoreditch, East London where you can spend your free time exploring the trendy local surroundings. Students of this course will also be given the chance to get their mixes featured on Magnetic Mag and Pioneer DJ Radio.

By enrolling on this course you’ll be joining a global alumni community with the likes of Patrick Topping, Claude VonStroke among others, and you’ll also have opportunities to attend free masterclasses, events and other networking opportunities. At Point Blank, we make it our priority to connect our students to the music industry to give you a head-start in your career.

Point Blank is proud to be ahead of the curve in delivering a fantastic student experience whether on campus or online and are happy to include all the exclusive features for students listed here.

Course spaces are limited to ensure every student receives ample 1-2-1 time with their lecturers.

FAQS

Do I need to buy software & equipment to take the course?

Depending on your programme, certain pieces of hardware and software will be essential throughout your studies at Point Blank.

To help with your independent learning and assessment work, you will need to have access to this equipment outside of the campus. However, if you are able to attend classes on-campus, this equipment will be available to use either in-class or by booking practice time. Note that you have access to our facilities 7 days a week during term time for the length of your course (excluding scheduled breaks).

Please visit this page which lists the hardware and software you are required to own for programmes taught by Point Blank.

Where you may choose to study online (distance learning), this equipment will be essential to your studies and assignment work. If for any reason you cannot afford to purchase an essential item, you may be eligible for financial support via the hardship fund. More information about this can be found here.

If you wish to buy equipment or software for your home studio, remember that Point Blank students qualify for discounts from Apple Education, Ableton, Native Instruments, Pioneer DJ and other leading industry partners.

What is my timetable?

Each module requires your attendance at one daytime class which will be 3 or 4 hours long depending on the module. Your timetable will be confirmed a week before the start of each term. If you have specific timetable requests, please contact us before booking and we will do our best to arrange your classes at times that suit you.

In addition to classes, students are expected to schedule sufficient practice time each week. The studio facilities are open to you 7 days a week gaining you valuable studio time and reinforcing the skills learned in class. Students can also book regular 1-2-1 sessions with our lecturers outside of class time.

Can I take the course and work at the same time?

This is a full time course and students should undertake 10 hours of study per module per week. This time includes lectures, 1-2-1 sessions with our instructors, studio bookings and self-study. Students can work whilst taking the course. We recommend students work no more than 15 hours per week.
