Following the popularity of last year’s summer school, award-winning music college Point Blank has announced this year’s summer program of music production and DJ courses aimed at music-mad 14 to 19 year old students who want to develop their skills over the summer break.
Running each week throughout the summer holidays Point Blank’s Music Production Course shows you how to build a track up from beats and bass to chords, top lines, EQ and effects, and finally mixing to get that professional sound. Whatever style of music you are into, our professional producer tutors can guide you through the skills and techniques you need. Each student gets to work on their own Logic Pro audio workstation and class sizes are strictly limited to ensure plenty of 1-2-1 instruction and guidance.
If you have always wanted to learn to DJ then we have the course for you! You will spend three days at Point Blank's DJ Academy learning to mix alongside a pro DJ. Classes are taught in small groups and every student has their own DJ workstation, so you get plenty of hands on experience using the latest Pioneer equipment. We've been training DJ's for over 15 years and won six consecutive awards from DJ Magazine. Learn to mix with the original and best DJ School. All music styles are welcome.
Each course is taught in a small group at Point Blank’s state-of-the-art recording and DJ studios in Hoxton, London. Tutors at the college include Grammy nominated songwriters and producers who have worked with a host of acclaimed artists including Alicia Keys, P Diddy, La Roux, Amy Winehouse, Wiley, Lilly Allen, Estelle and Sugababes.
Former Point Blank student and Universal Records A&R man Ben Scarr (who signed Tynchy Stryder) had this to say:
“I took a music production course. It was a very hands-on and practical and taught me loads about the process of making a record. It was a great opportunity to learn about the equipment and techniques that producers and sound engineers use in the studio, plus all the tutors at Point Blank work in the industry so the advice and support is second to none.”
The courses run on a weekly basis throughout the summer holidays from July 23rd to August 25th.
