Richard Rivera Course rating: 10/10
The course has more than exceeded my expectations. It has been great to receive unbiased and honest feedback from Danny. The lessons that he put together were really easy and clear to follow. Just amazing how much knowledge is packed into this 4 week course.The assignments were great, having the sense of direction needed to actually finish a track. It's so easy to get stuck. But, the integration of new techniques every week kept things moving forward. The main goal I had before starting the course was to improve my workflow. I acheived that and much more. I still have a long way to go down production lane, but thanks to Danny and this course I know I reached a new level of understanding and direction. Thanks you to everyone at Point Blank. Cheers Danny! Richy Rivera

Really enjoyed the course - While i had a knowledge of ableton and its capabilities the course really helped me in changing my thinking in the approach i take in producing house, or any music for that matter. Danny was very helpfull with all my questions as well as other students via the forum. The videos were really good and there were plenty of 'penny dropped' moments. I would serously consider another course , very soon !

I'm very happy with the course. I already did some other online courses in different schools, and i can say im really surprise with the quality from Point Blank course in comparison with the other online schools i tried. I love the the material covered in the course, the tutor was great, very capable and very supportive. And i loved the DVR feedback, it really helps and it is a personal thing for each student. For me it was really important to have that. Im already enrolled myself on another Point Blank course, and im sure it won't be the last one. Cheers, T
PaulKC Course rating: 9/10
The course was full of great insight, tutor feedback and video/written tutorials. Geared with a clear mission in mind - steer budding deep house producers in the right direction in order to actually finish a track from start to end, with flair. Although already aware of some of the techniques taught, they had never previously been put into a context that really helped to carve out a full and cohesive track. 100% recommended. Paul KC
