As part of the ongoing course development for our BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree and equivalent online degree, Point Blank have commissioned a series of masterclasses from renowned instrumentalists at our London studios. To kick things off this week, the highly-accomplished Sirishkumar Manji hosted a particularly unique masterclass session on the Tabla, a south-asian percussive instrument. In coming weeks, Point Blank will also be hosting Basement Jaxx percussionist Oli Savill and Japanese instrument specialist Clive Bell – all for the benefit of our students!
Over the course of this weeks’ masterclass, Sirishkumar covered a wide range of Tabla rhythms, time signatures and ragas before splitting the students into groups to try it for themselves, inviting them to play the Tablas as well as practise counting opposing time signatures. This session was an opportunity for our students to get some inspiration and advice from an internationally renowned musician, with the resulting session also able to be accessed by all Point Blank students to complement their studies. Check out the pictures from the session below, and you can watch our FFL with Sirishkumar from 2016.
At Point Blank, we have a wide range of industry professionals join us at our studios to present masterclasses for our students’ benefit. We’ve had electronic producers, DJs, live performance artists, sound engineers, film score composers and many more come and share their knowledge at our studios in London, LA and Ibiza. To gain access to these events and more, head over to our website and check out our courses. Our BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree covers everything from production and sound design to mixing and mastering and is now also available online. We are also currently offering 35% off selected online courses until July 17th, so there has never been a better time to enrol!
