If you’ve been dreaming about a career in the music industry, we’ve got good news. We are currently offering a massive 35% off selected online courses until July 17th, as well as a free copy of either Ableton Suite or Logic Pro X when enrolling on our Diploma or Higher Education courses, bringing your total savings to up to £2,000 / $2,500! Taken from anywhere in the world, these courses will provide you with the knowledge to take your music career to the next level. Simply head to our online courses, pick your course of choice and use the code SUMMERSALE when enrolling to enjoy these great savings. This offer is valid on all online courses except the online BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree.

Point Blank is the world’s leading electronic music school, a fact we’re very proud of. We offer unparalleled immersive and practical education across all areas of music production and sound engineering, whether in our studios or online. Our online music school has unrivalled levels of student engagement in its field and, in this article, we’ll show you exactly why. First and foremost, our courses were designed by music industry professionals with a vast amount of practical experience. Point Blank has continued to innovate with our online offering since our first online courses were created in 2006 – we were the first to develop interactive elements including live tutorials and 1-2-1 masterclasses, of which you can find out more below.

Focused, Concise and Practical Courses

You can get everything you need to take your music-making to the next level in our online Diploma courses with the range of course that Point Blank offer in both Logic Pro and Ableton Live. We cover production, sound design, composition, mixing and mastering all in one program, giving you a comprehensive skillset and practical, vocational training to succeed in the industry.

For those that are also seeking academic accreditation in an online format, we now also offer a full degree programme in partnership with Middlesex University, in the form of our online BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree – you can find out more about our online degree in the video below.

Live 1-2-1 Tutorials and Masterclasses

Our masterclasses enable the whole class to be online as a group with their instructor every week. Here, you’re able to directly ask your instructor questions in real time and receive instant feedback, as well as benefit from your classmates’ questions. Not only that, four times every module you’ll have the opportunity to take part in personal live video conferencing between you and your instructor, where you can discuss assignments and much more. We call these 1-2-1 Live Tutorials, and they are recorded so you can refer back to them at any time.

We believe live engagement and interaction helps the learning process immensely. This real-time communication enables our expert instructors to succinctly share music examples with you and demonstrate points related directly to your course material, answering your questions as you ask them. You can find out more about the tutorials and masterclasses in the video below.

Our Instructors

Our instructors have worked with some of the biggest names in music and are on hand to assist you throughout your studies. Mixing/Engineering instructor Anthony Chapman has worked with The Klaxons, Franz Ferdinand and Rizzle Kicks, as well as touring the world under the moniker DJ Scissorkicks, releasing over 50 records and remixes. Sound Design tutor Daniel Herbert has produced and designed sound for the BBC, C4 and CNN while also releasing music through Ouch & Tasty and working with St. Etienne. This is just a small snapshot of the industry experience our instructors bring to the table, elevating your study far beyond the bedroom and into the studio. Our Link Tutor at Middlesex University – who has assisted in the development of the course – is Marcus O’Dair, half of the Ninja Tune-signed band Grasscut.

Get a Taste for Our Online Courses with Free Samples

We have created a free online course sample for our brand new online degree course so you can get a taste of what your online experience with Point Blank is really going to be like before you enrol. Included in the free course sample is a range of modules including Composition, Production Analysis, Music Industry and much more, so you can get a sense of the depth of the course. Remember, what you don’t get in our course samples is the live interaction and bespoke teaching aspect – masterclasses and 1-2-1s – tailored to you.

Case Study: Claude VonStroke (Dirtybird Records)

San Francisco DJ, producer and Dirtybird head honcho Claude VonStroke is just one of Point Blank’s many alumni who is now a key player in the electronic music scene. He studied Ableton Live with us when he was already an established producer, and since then his career has well and truly skyrocketed. He was open and wanted to learn new things in a new genre, and his participation with Point Blank is a testament to how engaging our online courses are.

To have a look at the courses we have available, and to enrol, visit the Point Blank website and decide which course is right for you. As mentioned above, if you’re not sure which course is for you, or want to see how they work, try one of our free online course samples. Also, make sure you’re subscribed to our YouTube channel to get more free tutorials and live events.
