Point Blank's unique Singing Course is where you come if you want to learn to sing and perform like a professional singer. You will spend twelve weeks learning with vocalists who have worked alongside some of the biggest names in the business including Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Robbie Williams and Chaka Khan. Taught in intimate classes with no more than 12 students, the course reveals professional vocal techniques used by recording artists including former Point Blank student Leona Lewis. Whatever style of music inspires you, we'll show you how to deliver a great performance. All styles are welcome and no previous experience is required. We also run a regular Open Mic Night hosted by our Grammy award-winning singing instructor, Phil Ramocon, the perfect opportunity for you to showcase the vocal skills learnt on the course.
