Point Blank Student Opportunities: January 2019 (Warner, Decca, Axtone & More)

At Point Blank Music School, we strive to provide our students with the best opportunities we can. We know how difficult it can be to break into the industry when you’re starting out, so we aim to help you make as much noise as possible – and get noticed by the best in the business.

Becoming a student at Point Blank certainly has its perks: each month our calendar is populated with insightful panels and artist masterclasses, as well as numerous presentations and events for you to attend. Many of these are delivered by industry experts and employers who are invited here to give first-hand insights into their organisations and music industry careers.

If you’re keen to benefit from these kinds of opportunities, why not enrol on a course? We offer programmes in Music Production & Sound Engineering, DJing, Singing & Songwriting, Radio Broadcasting and more. See our upcoming, exclusive-to-students opportunities below. If you are interested in applying to any, please be sure to email Nina at nina@pointblankmusicschool.com.
