Introducing Our Newest LA Instructor: Brian Markman

Here at Point Blank, one of our foundational beliefs is that our students should learn from the very best in the music industry. Our elite instructors are established figures, the leaders in their field. With this in mind, we’re excited to announce that Point Blank Los Angeles will be welcoming a brand new instructor starting this September.

Brian Markman may be familiar to some of you already. In May, he led a hugely popular workshop as part of a Point Blank Los Angeles Open House. A renowned engineer, producer and DJ, Markman began his career over 15 years ago playing in acid jazz clubs. One of the first in LA to evolve his sound to include the then-burgeoning influence of drum’n’bass, he became affiliated with the Presha Crew and WreckIgnition, helping to create one of Los Angeles’ first D&B clubs. However, his commitment to musical evolution didn’t stop there – Markman also launched Pull, Los Angeles’ first club devoted to UK garage. Nowadays, his live sets see him combining Ableton Push, Korg Volca synthesizers and Native Instruments plugins to craft his unique, compelling sound that draws on house classicism, garage and bassline.

It’s precisely his devotion to musical and technological developments that ensures Markman remains a vital force within the LA scene – both as an artist and teacher. An Ableton Certified Trainer and former SAE instructor on the Electronic Music Production Program, we’re excited to announce that he’ll be sharing his unique experience and skill set as an instructor of Music Composition.
