Award-winning music school Point Blank has expanded it's range of online music programmes with a newly redeveloped course aimed at producers of Trance. The course is the latest in their Pro Producer series and will be enrolling monthly from August 31st. Taught on Logic 8, the four week course is priced at £295 ($489 US). The course has been developed in association with Grammy-nominated producer and remixer Mike Koglin and reveals the production techniques behind a variety of current trance styles from the likes of Deadmau5, Sander van Doorn, Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren and Tiesto. It includes a wealth of course materials including tutorial videos, comprehensive notes, samples, song files and other resources. Each week students have the opportunity to upload their own tracks and get personal feedback, tips and advice from a pro producer. Koglin burst onto the scene in 1998 with his top 20 hit "The Silence". Since then he has released a string of productions and remixes, winning support from all the major players on the scene including Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto and Paul Van Dyk. Mike also runs his own label Noys Music, described by Mixmag as 'one of the hottest trance labels in the UK'. Last year he was named as one of the Top 100 DJ's in the world in DJ magazine's annual poll. In addition to providing students with regular one-to-one feedback, course tutors also host a weekly webchat where the class can discuss course topics and exchange ideas with like-minded music producers from all over the world. This unique interaction has proved especially popular with students: "I've learned more about music production in the past few weeks online than I have in the past 7 years battling on my own" said David Eserin. All course materials are accessible for one year from enrolment. Class sizes are strictly limited and enrolment is now underway.
