Check Out Point Blank, London's Hip Hop Music Production School

*Excerpts from Point Blank press release*
Since Point Blank made the announcement of a specialized Hip Hop course back in April, the London-based music college has offered some pretty enticing perks including the course being led by pro producer Paul Waller who has worked with De La Soul and Gang Starr among others.

Support of Universal Records
Universal Records has also established a partnership with the award-winning music school. In an effort to give Point Blank students more than just extensive production knowledge, stand-out producers have the opportunity to get their work to the right people on completing the course. "Universal is happy to support the development of outstanding Point Blank students who show real talent and determination." – Darcus Beese - President of Universal Records

On top of all this, the Hip Hop course introduces its pioneering 'Beat Analysis' section, which deconstructs classic cuts by Hip Hop greats such as Dre, J. Dilla, Timbaland and The Neptunes. So if you're reading this from your bedroom studio and wondering whether Point Blank and Hip Hop match up, you should have a pretty good idea by now.

Point Blank has been voted "Best Music Production & DJ School" for six consecutive years By DJ Mag. The school runs small classes with personalised teaching from music industry professionals. Tutors include Grammy Award winners and songwriters with record sales in the millions as well as producers and remixers who've worked alongside the likes of Massive Attack, Beyonce, De La Soul, Alicia Keys, Bjork, La Roux, Florence and the Machine, Sugababes and many others.

Point Blank's pioneering online music school allows students from all over the world to tap into these industry connections and the expertise of the organisation and its tutors. Thanks to a unique Direct Video Response™ system, (DVR™), online students benefit from ground breaking 1-2-1 video coaching from professional music producers.

Point Blank welcomes students from all over the world. Many of them go on to enjoy success in the music industry and included among them are Leona Lewis, Gemma Cairney (BBC 1Xtra), Dev (BBC Radio 1), Tayo (Fabric) Ben Scarr (Island Records), Beyonce remixer Gareth Wynn and Armand Van Helden remixer DJ Jahawi. The college is an Approved Training Centre for music software giants Apple, Ableton, Steinberg and Native Instruments.
