To open Point Blank in Los Angeles, we needed to find a place which was buzzing, creative and a great environment for budding producers. That is what we found in Jesse Rogg's Mack Sennett Studios. Students get a unique opportunity to learn with the world's 'Best Electronic Music School' (DJ Mag) in Silverlake. Each Ableton workstation is kitted out with Push, NI Maschine, Komplete 10, Kontrol 49 keyboards and Output's excellent REV and the team is passionate and experienced. For more info, check out the course list below...
"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
