Last month, we made our way to Miami Music Week to attend the annual Winter Music Conference 2019. Whilst we were there, we attended a variety of eye-opening panels and parties as well as getting the chance to catch up with some legendary producers and DJs – not to mention some exciting newcomers. During the many musical Q & A’s we got stuck into, we made sure to ask one simple question each time: “If you could go back in time and give one tip to yourself as a beginner what would it be?” The results were inspiring to say the least.
Find out what advice the likes of Ferry Corsten, Roger Sanchez, Kayzo, TV Noise, Wooli and others would give their younger selves below. If you want a consistent stream of sterling advice and golden tips, our Point Blank lecturers have decades of experience in the music industry they’re happy to share. Check out our range of acclaimed courses here.
From solid tips on improving your workflow and honing your craft to staying positive and believing in your creative vision, these are all major keys for those who are just starting out. Now you’ve heard some tips from those working in the industry today, here’s one of ours: When starting out, it’s great to keep your own focuses and goals in mind and try not to pay too much attention to other people’s progress – remember, everyone’s journey is different. If you’re feeling inspired by what you’ve seen in this video, we have a whole library of them on our YouTube channel. We regularly host masterclasses, track breakdowns and industry discussions which pull back the curtain on some of your favourite artist’s secrets.
If you study with us at either London, Los Angeles, China, Mumbai, or Online, make sure to keep an eye on our socials so you’ll be the first to know when we have something exciting to attend.
