FREE Online Live Stream Pro Producer Masterclass - Groove Clinic

Exciting times prevail at Point Blank as we prepare to step into the growing realm of live internet broadcasting. That’s right, we are giving you the opportunity to watch as a pro producer guides you through popular music production techniques live on screen.

We know that not everyone can make it to our college in London so for all you music-makers worldwide, this is as close to being in the studio with our team of pro producers you can get!

The first broadcast is scheduled for Thursday 7th October through our new Point Blank Livestream channel
and will be on the topic 'beats and groove'.

For a short period only the broadcasts will be FREE and OPEN TO ALL – ie. you do not need to be a Point Blank student to watch.

For those that enrol at Point Blank Online you will have access to an even deeper level of 1-2-1 interaction. In the private forum and weekly web chats, students are able to pose questions directly to their tutor and classmates. On top of that, our system of Direct Video Response™ allows you to upload your projects each week and receive a personalised feedback video analysing your track with an instructional voice over, revealing tips and tricks to take your music to the next level.

So be sure to tune in to Point Blank at 6pm UK time (5pm GMT), Thursday 7th October for an exclusive taster of the music production courses at Point Blank Online.
