Suketu is also the co-founder of The Music Inc (TMI), an electronic music school based in Mumbai. Suketu and TMI have been working closely with Point Blank for some time to create a unique educational pathway for TMI students looking to study with us in London. Not only that, but he has recently been studying our Complete Electronic Music Production online course, tracking his progress with this vlog.
