There are many aspects of the music industry to consider. Even if you’ve mastered production, composition and mixing, getting yourself out there, heard on national radio and booked at gigs is a whole other art form. At Point Blank, our courses aim to give you all the ammo you need to not only get to grips with music-making, but to understand how the wider music industry works. One of the ways we do it is to give our students the chance to speak to those at the very top of their game, and when we teamed up with International Music Summit for their first IMS College, that’s exactly what we did.
No one can doubt Pete Tong’s legacy as one of the most influential figures in modern music history. His role as a broadcaster, in breaking new records, signing the latest talent, developing big name artists and DJing in clubs all over the world, he’s the perfect person to advise the next generation. Joined on stage by producer duo Eli & Fur, Laura Newton from CAA and Listen Up!’s Lucy Allen, we talked about all angles of the industry, from the early mistakes the panelists made to promoting yourself and artist development.

At our schools in London and LA, we regularly have guest artists and speakers come in to pass on their invaluable knowledge about the industry, production, promotion, performance and more. Our Music Industry module – part of our Music Production and Sound Engineering Master Diploma – is just one of the ways you can learn about the ins and outs of the industry. Find out more here.
