If you have ever dreamed of a job making music or playing a role in the wider music industry then it’s well worth considering the innovative online degree options offered by Point Blank Music School starting September 24th 2012.
There are several very good reasons for studying with Point Blank online:
Point Blank incorporates the most innovative learning techniques and technology in the world. They use patented technology for live online video broadcasts and personally designed video feedback on your work – DVR™. For an explanation, watch this: http://www.pointblankonline.net/about-point-blank/what-makes-us-unique.php
Choosing to study for a music industry career in this way is an attractive option to those on tighter budgets as it is way cheaper than studying at other ‘normal’ universities. At £3500 per year this programme is less than half the price of the usual £9000 tuition fees you’ll find at other institutions. And that doesn’t factor in the money you will save on accommodation as you don’t have to move anywhere – you study from the comfort of your own home.
Maybe you can’t devote your entire lifestyle to a more traditional form of education and would rather have the flexibility of online learning. Apart from attending weekly live masterclasses online, you learn when it suits you. If you can’t make the masterclass (each one lasts an hour and there are two per week) you can view the video of the class at your leisure after it has been uploaded by your tutor. Working through the videos, audio examples, downloading projects, uploading assignments etc is scheduled by yourself when it suits you.
The online approach fits modern lifestyles and budgets much more closely than many traditional study methods, particularly for mature students, yet still features formal academic learning processes and qualifications. It’s just that Point Blank delivers the learning in an engaging and practically useful way. The first two years will gain you a diploma (DipHE) which you can turn into a degree by completing the 3rd year at validating body Middlesex University, either continuing online or by choosing to study on the actual campus in London.
