Point Blank x Resident Advisor Present: Young Producers Scholarship. Apply Now!

We’re delighted to announce the launch of our new Young Producers Scholarship in association with one of our favourite musical institutions: Resident Advisor. It’s something we’ve been working on for some time and we’re proud to be able to combine resources to provide what we think is a uniquely rounded route to success for the right applicant. Show us your outstanding talent and your will to work and PB & RA can take you as far as you want to go.

RA x Dekmantel at Warehouse Project

The successful applicant will embark on a year-long Music Production & DJ Diploma course taught in London (worth £13,995), with additional mentoring from Point Blank and Resident Advisor. Make use of the peerless status that these two bodies carry in the world of dance music, and work alongside those who have been there and done it themselves. You will have access to contacts and opportunities provided from both sides and at the end of it, should you choose, you can go straight into the second year of a Bachelors degree in a relevant field – this is accredited by Middlesex University. If the academic route isn’t for you, however, you will still benefit from the same instructor guidance, mentorship, access to facilities and industry opportunities.

If you’re a serious candidate for Young Producers Scholarship, you already know what RA is, and in that spirit, you can imagine the kind of opportunities this will present. As industry leaders ourselves, Point Blank’s added clout make this the chance of a lifetime. Get access to events, live performance slots, performances with media partners, in-studio mentoring and studio collaborations with the best in the game.

If you’re aged 18-25 then the Young producers Scholarship is open to you, commencing April or September 2018, depending on your availability. All you need to do is send the following to matt@pointblankmusicschool.com by 28 February 2018.

  • A written application, highlighting your relevant musical experience to date, in the form of a CV and/or cover letter.
  • Links to your artist social media profiles (eg. Soundcloud, Facebook, Mixcloud), highlighting your strongest music and/or mix.

The selection process will be carried out by both Resident Advisor and Point Blank. Successful applicants will be notified by 12th March 2018. Unfortunately, we cannot reply to every applicant so if you have not heard from us by 12th March, please consider your scholarship application unsuccessful.

Check out more of our production courses at our London school page. Or, if you live abroad, we also offer a scholarship for online study. Be sure to check out Resident Advisor for events listings, podcasts and high-quality editorial, and if you’d like to speak with us about this scholarship or indeed anything else, please call +44 20 7729 4884.

Enrol Now at Point Blank Ibiza for Summer 2018. Save €150 with a 10% Earlybird Discount

Though we’ve well and truly entered the depths of winter, we can’t help but let our minds wander to the next time we’ll be able to step outside without three layers and a scarf. We’re sure that, like us, you could use a reminder that the sun is out there somewhere. So we’ve turned our attention to our Ibiza courses and started planning our next summer spent on the white isle. We’ve recently announced some improvements and expansion in the courses on offer, and to give you a proper understanding of what you can expect, we’re delighted to share this video with you from last summer. There’s no better place to immerse yourself in nightlife and DJing, and there’s no better time to book your place, as we’re offering 10% all Ibiza courses to the earlybirds who book before 31 December. Just enter the code: 10IBIZA on enrolment to claim your discount.

In the video, get a look at the students at work: honing their skills in our classroom, hearing from our expert instructors at talks and workshops, and playing their own sets on the gorgeous rooftop at the Ocean Drive Hotel. Hear testimonials from the students too, telling us (as if they need to) what’s so special about their two weeks spent learning to DJ and produce by day, and partying in the world most famous clubbing hotspot by night.

The courses on offer at Point Blank Ibiza include our original DJ/Producer course which offers the perfect introduction or opportunity to brush up on your skills, an Advanced DJ/Producer course so those who have either studied with us before or have some experience of their own can take their sets to the next level, plus a new DJ/Radio course where students learn with an angle on braodcasting in the most dynamic part of the music industry. If you’d like to know more, call +44 20 7729 4884 or use our contact form.
