If you want a cost effective but high quality alternative for going to uni, this could be the course for you. That is if you don’t mind sharing your classroom with fellow students who are already pumping out successful tunes or working in the music industry, people like Claude VonStroke, Gareth Wynn, Gemma Cairney, Detboi and loads more…
Point Blank Music Production School is well known for its relevant, practical, music industry-based courses and successful students. So we were excited to hear the news that the UK’s favourite music school has decided to offer degree level courses to take care of those who want to come out the other end of their studies with a qualification as well as the knowledge to actually get ahead in the music business.
As you are no doubt aware, it costs £9,000 a year to go to university not including accommodation. With the Dip HE in Music Production and Business you can qualify entirely online and at less than half the price! Study for a degree with Point Blank Online for £3500 per year: less than half what you’d pay at a ‘normal’ uni.
The course lasts two years, is internationally recognised and is validated by Middlesex University. If you prefer, you can study for one year and get a Cert HE – equivalent to one year of a degree.
Using pioneering teaching methods including interactive live broadcasting to small classrooms made up of students from all over the world and DVR™ (personally recorded video feedback from your tutor on your assignments), you’ll be taking part in a creative global community with all the interaction and communication you would expect from a cutting edge multi-media company. The program takes you from the basics of music production through to highly advanced techniques using Logic and other software such as Ableton Live. Modules on Sound Design, Production Analysis, Mixing, Mastering, Remixing plus working with Sound to Picture (AV) complete your skills as a producer. You’ll also learn key business skills and acquire industry contacts to help you launch your career in music. The Dip HE is taken entirely online so you do not need to be in the UK to attend. It is worth 240 HE recognised credits.
The year starts on September 24th 2012 and places are strictly limited so if you’re interested, don’t leave it too late….
