PBLA Open House w/ MECHA: Free Masterclass & Bonus Ableton Giveaway – Dec 4

We’re back with another PBLA Open House event at our gorgeous campus inside the historic Mack Sennett Studios in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. Point Blank Los Angeles will be open to the public on Wednesday, December 4 from 8:00pm onwards, giving anyone curious about our classes the chance to have their questions answered on the spot by our expert instructors and friendly staff members.

At the Open House, you’ll be treated to a free Music Production Masterclass focusing on one of the most popular DAWs around: Ableton Live 10. The masterclass will be delivered by Mikhail Arce-Ignacio aka MECHA, an Ableton Certified Trainer who is one of our most popular teachers. He’ll give you a taste of what our comprehensive BPPE-approved music programs are like and, when he’s done, we’ll give away a free copy of Ableton Live 10 Suite to one lucky winner! RSVP now for a chance to win this software valued at $749. (Winner must be present.)

During the December 4 event, you’ll also be able to tour Point Blank’s home at the famous hundred-year-old Mack Sennett Studios (where Charlie Chaplin once filmed) and check out our state-of-the-art equipment and workstations. After his presentation, MECHA will also host a Track Feedback Session, so if you’ve got a track you want help with or just want to share your music with other producers and industry pros, we’ll be happy to take a listen and provide feedback.
