"I had the most amazing experience during my course at Point Blank LA!! Our instructor Sweatson Klank covered so much info in such a short time. At the end I walked away feeling confident and excited to experiment and produce with my new knowledge! I'm forever grateful for this experience :o) I've already recommended the class to so many people. Thanks." Kristin Leeder
