Singing Summer School

FULLY BOOKED

I just wanted to say, as a music newbie undertaking the Singing course, that it’s been absolutely great. Roberta Bruno is inspirational, and the school's facilities are wonderful. I’m already looking at which courses I'll take at PB after this one finishes. - Magda, Singing student

Overview

Do you want to be a power singer and not just a shower singer? Then Point Blank Institute's Singing Summer School is where you need to be this August. Spend five days - Monday-Friday - learning with an expert vocal coach who has worked with the biggest names in music including Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Robbie Williams, and Chaka Khan. You'll be taught professional vocal techniques used by recording artists such as former Point Blank student Leona Lewis.
