Follow a Dream
Children obsessed with DJing or music? Don’t despair says Hillary Wilce- they could just make a career out of it.
Now, at 23, Sami’s up in the morning, totally focused. What has wrought this change? Taking a years production course in music production at the Point Blank Music College in east London. “It’s a passion. I want to make my records on my own label. The course is practical, and the teachers know the industry. My father looks at me now and sees a changed person.”
David Reid, the sales and marketing manager, says the college is part of the London Open College Network, its courses are accredited and award-winning, and that it is an official training centre for Steinberg, the music software giants. “We’re very transparent. We do a studio tour each week, and parents are welcome to join it and see lesions in progress.”
