Roland holds an important place in music history with its iconic music-making machines, marking the years through electronic music’s progression,” says our Point Blank CEO and Founder, Rob Cowan. “Point Blank Music School has been sharing the secrets of the creative music-making process since the ¢90s and has long held Roland’s technology in high regard. Now with our blended learning model of learning in-person and via the Virtual Classroom, it’s the perfect time to cement this partnership as we bring the fun and engagement of making fantastic tunes to future generations of beatmakers.”

Roland Cloud has been steadily evolving into what it is today, a market-leading service for music creation tools, including both new and classic virtual instruments and applications,” adds Roland Cloud CEO Brendan Callinan. “Inspiring young, creative artists via education is at the heart of our philosophy, and as an industry leader in arts education, Point Blank is the perfect partner to help us take our sounds to the next generation of music creators.
