We are delighted to announce our latest development in what has been a very exciting year so far. Point Blank Music School and Mumbai’s own The True School of Music (TSM) are joining forces to create a unique and exciting two-week DJ/Entrepreneur Course, taught in TSM’s state-of-the-art facility in Mumbai. This groundbreaking Point Blank-developed programme will be collaboratively taught by Point Blank and TSM instructors. It focuses on essential DJ skills as well as how to make your mark in the music industry. Point Blank, known worldwide as the “Best Electronic Music School” (as voted by readers of DJ Mag), has schools in London, Los Angeles, Ibiza and online, whilst TSM is India’s first music industry training school.
This partnership brings the very best of both worlds and will allow DJs in India to have access to instructors and curriculum from Point Blank taught alongside TSM instructors in Mumbai.
