With schools open in Los Angeles, Ibiza and Mumbai and a hugely active online school which caters to students worldwide, Point Blank has now turned its attention to China.
Point Blank Music School is taking its specialist brand of dance music education to the Far East. The new school will be based in Hangzhou, the creative capital of China, which is an hour’s ride on the bullet train from Shanghai. It is scheduled to open its doors in the summer of 2019.
Hooking up with giant Chinese internet company NetEase via its dedicated music subsidiary Fever, Point Blank has found a partner with an equal passion for spreading the electronic music message from as far and wide as Burning Man, Ibiza and throughout Asia.
“We are thrilled to partner with Netease and Fever to open the first electronic music school of its kind in China. We are looking forward to training the next generation of Chinese artists and opening the doors to their success in China and on a global scale,” said Point Blank CEO Rob Cowan.
The aim is to bring the music industry specialist education that Point Blank is known for to a passionate audience in China, who have been discovering a new kind of music for themselves in recent years. With a burgeoning interest in EDM, pop and DJing, together with hundreds of clubs springing up across the nation, Point Blank China aims to illustrate a wide variety of music styles to its students with the goal of engendering a new generation of Chinese superstar music producer/DJs. Fever, with its audience in the hundreds of millions, has the reach, resource and wherewithal to make this happen.
Point Blank will first focus on delivering a specially formatted and comprehensive year-long Music Production & Sound Engineering Diploma which includes the following subject areas: music production, DJ skills, music composition, sound design, sound engineering, the art of mixing, audio for games, mastering and more. Thereafter, it’s the school’s intention to deliver its BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering degree at the Point Blank China site. Chinese students will get a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the UK’s most revered dance music education brand.
