Point Blank London celebrate yet another stellar year of music

2010 has been yet another stellar year for the UK Music Industry. For Point Blank London, 2010 has been a year of forging closer relationships with the music industry, both in the UK and globally and of continued growth of their Online School which saw a staggering 50% increase in size: over 2000 students studying with Point Blank online throughout the year. Whilst 2011 is set to be even bigger and better, the team are taking a moment to reflect on certain noteworthy highlights of 2010.

Globally, Point Blank Online now has students from over 50 different countries, with their Online School offering more than 100 courses available throughout the year. This service is giving students from far-reaching corners of the world the opportunity to work with a roll-call of renowned UK industry figures and tap into the magic of that UK sound.

At Point Blank’s London college site, the industry collaborations continued. The year got off to a bounding start when producer Paul Epworth - still glowing from his Brits’ win for Florence and the Machine’s Lungs Album - gave a guest lecture on how to be a successful music producer. Other guest lecturers during the year included Radio One’s Annie Mac, and Beyonce and Leona Lewis remixer - and former Point Blank student - Gareth Wynn to name a few.

Throughout this year, Point Blank’s Masterclass series has continued to shine. In May, Point Blank tutor Jonny Miller hosted an impressive Production Masterclass at the Rio Music Conference in Brazil. Then in July students were privileged to visit Robbie Williams’ producer Guy Chambers at his London studio where he held an exclusive Songwriting Masterclass and gave insider tips on how to make that elusive yet significant all-time classic hit. Other Masterclasses have included Kylie and JZ producer Tommy D and producer vocalist and DJ Ben Westbeech (aka Breach).

This year, the vocational strength of Point Blank’s courses was proven yet again with former students Des McGouran(aka Detboi) releasing his latest EP on Herve’s Cheap Thrills label and DJing all over the world, and Lucy Monkman (aka Monki) starting her daytime show on RINSE FM. And with endorsements from award winning producers Mark Ronson, Louie Vega and DJ Pete Tong amongst others, new students can be confident that their study will be a worthwhile long-term investment.
