The time is finally upon us and the PBLA Open House is today (Saturday September 12th) and we’re hugely excited to announce that we’ve just installed 16 brand new Native Instruments Maschine units in our Los Angeles school just in time for you to check out when you come down. This is huge news, as the highly intuitive Maschine is going to play an integral part in the teaching of our numerous LA courses.

The PBLA Open House event is a superb chance to check out our Los Angeles school – you’ll even have the chance to learn some production tips and tricks in masterclasses from expert instructors Dot (Team Supreme, Low End Theory) and Computo (Flying Lotus, A-Trak, Zedd).

The event will start at 12:15pm at Mack Sennett Studios, 1215 Bates Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90029. After an introduction with Head of School Jesse Rogg and Course Advisor Hart Thorson, Point Blank expert instructor Kate Ellwanger aka Dot will be giving you a flavour of her creative workflow in Ableton, as she dives into some key production tips in and creates a track from scratch, giving you an insight into what you can expect from our courses at PBLA.
Computo is one of our expert instructors at Point Blank Los Angeles, and he’s worked with Flying Lotus, A-Trak and Zedd
We’ll also have an Ableton masterclass with PBLA expert instructor Computo. He’ll be covering a taster session with Ableton, taking you through the basics of production using the fully equipped Ableton Push and Komplete Kontrol stations that are at Point Blank Los Angeles.
Finally, we’ll round the Open House off with a studio tour and Q&A session with US Course Advisor Hart Thorson.
