Outstanding experience to date. The course has been amazing so far and I cannot wait for what comes next. This course has prepared me to enter the music industry in a way I would have never thought was possible.

I didn't expect Point Blank to offer this amount of support. The tutors are great and I'm learning a lot every lesson. The skills I've learnt so far have helped me massively with my personal music, and the knowledge of the tutors is out of this world.
