Not everyone can make it to our London or LA campuses to learn music production with Point Blank, so we have created a method of online learning for which we recently won a prestigious Webby Award. Our range of online courses cover all aspects of music production, mixing and mastering using Ableton Live and Logic Pro X, together with specific focuses such as composition, music business, sound design and more.
With 1-2-1 Live Tutorials from expert instructors and weekly Masterclasses with your classmates, the emphasis is on interactivity and feedback on your music. As with all Point Blank courses, your instructors are top music producers including Grammy and Ivor Novello winning songwriters, producers and remixers who have worked with Pharrell Williams, Swedish House Mafia, U2 and Amy Winehouse among many others. They are on-hand to personally guide you through our comprehensive online courses. Uniquely, our courses are accredited all the way up to University level.
Studying with us online, you join a highly nurturing, collaborative community of producers from all over the world. Our graduates include Claude VonStroke, Goldie, Nicole Moudaber and Aluna Francis as well as many other successful industry figures. Find out more by browsing the courses below.
