Watch our Full Vlog Series w/ DJ Ravine as he Studies at Point Blank London

Now that his time with us in London has come to an end, its time to look back over DJ Ravine’s studies with us. Over three months, we followed him on his journey with three modules: Intro to Music Production, Music Composition and Sound Engineering, each an element that, as Ravine will tell you, have combined to improve his production significantly. Check out all ten of his video blogs below, don’t forget to check out our London courses for yourself.

When Ravine first got started with us, he confessed that his opinion of his own production prowess was less than stellar. So he picked the three modules that he thought would allow him to improve most quickly, all of which form part of our BA (Hons) in Music Production and Sound Engineering degree course. Intro to Production, to augment the modest knowledge he already had and to sweep up any essential techniques he may have missed, Music Composition, to give his tracks more direction, and Sound Engineering, which he actually selected accidentally… more on that later.

Throughout his studies, he brought us along for the ride and interviewed instructors and classmates for a special insight into the classroom. Anthony Chapman, his Sound Engineering instructor, takes very little time to convince him of the benefits of a little sound-engineering knowledge too, as his group record an original cover of Oasis’ ‘Wonderwall’. Linton Bennett supplied constant nuggets of composition tips and mantras, and Tom Glendenning took him through all things Ableton.

Everyone here at Point Blank has enjoyed these videos immensely, so we’d like to say a big thanks to DJ Ravine for putting them together. For all that we try, there’s no way of showing how good our courses are without being there, but these videos give as good a taster as we can achieve. We hope you enjoy learning about the various extra-curricular activities that are constantly going down in and around the school too.

All of Ravine’s modules are part of our flagship BA (Hons) in Music Production and Sound Engineering, and you can also find them in some shorter courses too, like the Master Diploma. That was our original degree programme here and we’re proud to have a launched a second starting in September, the BA (Hons) In Music Industry Management, in which we teach you all the steps necessary to make strides in a career in music. If you have any questions, please give us a call on 020 7729 4884 or send us an email.
