Hip Hop Course with Pro Producer Paul Waller

Each and every tutor here at Point Blank is an experienced music industry professional. Among them are Grammy Award winning songwriters, platinum selling producers and sound engineers who have worked with some of the biggest names in the game. We pride ourselves on providing our students with expert tuition from people who understand what it takes to succeed in the music industry.

Continuing this trend, we are excited to announce the new Hip Hop Pro Producer Course which will be taught by producer/remixer/engineer, Paul Waller. Among the many acclaimed urban artists he has worked with are De La Soul, Gang Starr, Soul II Soul and All Saints as well as legends Gil Scott Heron and BB King. He has credits on several million selling records including Massive Attacks' "Unfinished Sympathy" and Bjork's "Debut" album. Here he is to tell you a bit about the course:

On the course you get to download the project file of a track produced exclusively by Paul for the course and find out exactly how it was created using only the instruments and plug-ins in Logic. You will also benefit from Direct Video Response (DVR) - weekly 1-2-1 video feedback on your own tracks from Paul himself.

Other new developments specifically for this course include our 'Beat Analysis' video tutorials in which we deconstruct classic Hip Hop beats by the likes of Dr. Dre, J Dilla, Timbaland, RZA and The Neptunes. You will then learn how to extract the groove templates and apply them to your own beats. You can see a sample of one of our Beat Analysis videos below where we look at ODB's 'Got Your Money' beat:

The Hip Hop music production course launches on Monday 3rd May and is enrolling now. Please click here for more information. Places are strictly limited and filling up fast so get in there quick!
