Award-winning music school Point Blank has added two new courses to its online curriculum.
The Hip Hop course has been developed by multi platinum producer and remixer Paul Waller who has worked with major players including De La Soul, Gang Starr and Naughty By Nature. Paul tackles a range of production styles from old school masters like Pete Rock through to J Dilla, Timbaland and Kanye West.
At the helm for the Dubstep Course is Jonny Miller, acclaimed producer, DJ and label manager who has racked up releases on labels including Aquatic Lab, Sidestepper Recordings, K7 and Twisted Funk. Jonny will examine a broad range of production techniques from bass heavy dubs through to more techno influenced flavours.
Point Blank takes a unique approach to online learning. Having worked through a weeks worth of exclusive course materials, each student submits an assignment. In return, they receive a unique one-to-one feedback video (Direct Video Response™), in which a pro music producer analyses their track and offers technical and creative advice. It’s a fast track route to professional music production which has proved popular with students from all over the world.
