Leading music school Point Blank have launched a full accredited online degree qualification.
The Dip HE in Music Production and Business is equivalent to two years of a BA (hons) study and gives students the chance to benefit from the practical music industry expertise and innovative teaching methods that Point Blank is known for, whilst also achieving an internationally recognized Higher Education qualification awarded by Middlesex University. (There is also an option to study for one year only for the 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), students take part in a creative global community with all the interaction and communication expected from a cutting edge multimedia company.
The program takes students 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 a full range of skills as a producer.
Key business skills are also taught where students will acquire valuable industry contacts to help launch their music career. The Dip HE is taken entirely online so there is no need to be in the UK to attend. It is worth 240 HE recognised credits (subject to validation).
The year starts on September 24th 2012 and places are strictly limited so early booking is strongly advised.
