Point Blank Launches Second Term in Mumbai in Partnership with True School of Music. Enrol for November!

The dust has settled on the first term of courses at Point Blank Mumbai, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Having joined forces with Mumbai’s own The True School of Music (TSM) we launched the unique and exciting two-week DJ/Entrepreneur Course, taught in TSM’s state-of-the-art facility in Mumbai. The groundbreaking Point Blank-developed programme is collaboratively taught by Point Blank and TSM instructors, focussing on essential DJ skills as well as how to make your mark in the music industry. We’re pleased to announce the launch of the second term on 27 November. There are still spaces on the course and everyone who enrols gets a free copy of Rekordbox DJ performance software worth 10,000 Rupees, so enrol today!

In our first term, DJs in India were given access to instructors and curriculum from Point Blank and taught by PB London’s lead DJ instructor Ben Bristow. At the end of the two weeks, the students put on a live performance at SummerHouse Mumbai, showing off their new skills in the fully-kitted club.

For the second course, Darren Henry, a.k.a Quest, steps in to take over from Ben Bristow. Darren is a veteran producer and pioneer of the UK Dubstep sound, around since its inception in the early 2000s. With releases under his belt on labels such as Deep Medi, Dub Police, System, Innamind, Soul Jazz and Antisocial Records, he is a respected and revered figure within the industry worldwide. It goes without saying that students will learn from one of the best.

On the course, students learn DJ techniques such as tempo control and cueing, beat matching, EQ, loops and effects, acapella mixing and preparing a set. In addition, Verhnon Ibrahim teaches students how to build their identity and brand, how to work with artist management/agents, the intricacies of the live industry, business models, business planning, negotiation skills, web and social media, gaining exposure, growing a fan base and marketing.

Enrolment is open right now, so don’t sleep! If you want to learn the basics of DJing, and everything you need to know to build a career, then sign up for the DJ/Entrepreneur Course and get your free copy of Rekordbox DJ performance software, the best way to use Pioneer CDJs.
