We’re back with another PBLA Open House event at our gorgeous location at Mack Sennett Studios in LA. Point Blank Los Angeles will be open to the public on the evening of Thursday, 14 March from 7pm at Mack Sennett Studios, 1215 Bates Avenue, LA, giving anyone curious about our LA school the chance to get the answers they need right from the mouths of those who teach them. For this one we’ve enlisted PBLA expert instructor Sweatson Klank for a special masterclass in beat-making and creative production, teaching how to build out tracks quickly and easily in Ableton Live. Also, take a tour of our home in the famous hundred-year-old studios and get a look at the state-of-the-art equipment we exclusively use.
