Dirtybird and Point Blank Music School Partner on Equal Opportunity Scholarship
Attention! Calling all up and coming producers! Dirtybird Records has partnered with Point Blank Music School to launch its second annual scholarship program! If you are wanting to learn from the best of the best, then this is your chance to shine! This scholarship program is designed to support and give back to the next generation of aspiring BIPOC producers. If you are selected, the innovative west-coast record label will give you the funds for a six-month program to grow your skills. The program is designed as an equal opportunity program to support diversity in dance music, giving those with limited resources a chance to gain mentorship and production skills from some of the brightest in the business. Sounds like a win to me!
The scholarship will allow the winner to get training from the legendary Point Blank in their renowned 6-month online music production diploma program. In this program, the winner will learn how to write and produce music professionally. And as an added bonus, Dirtybird will supplement Point Blank’s curriculum with specialized mentorship in career branding, development, and marketing. These are all important aspects of the program and Dirtybird wants you to succeed! Plus, Dirtybird will also provide a gear grant for any equipment necessary to participate in the curriculum. This is a killer deal!
In the past, Dirtybird has partnered with the renowned Beat Lab Academy in Los Angeles to offer a similar scholarship. The 2021 recipient, Sampson. has already found success releasing on his favorite label, Kyle Watson’s label, Box of Cats. You can be the next winner!
Dirtybird founder and label head Claude VonStroke says the label is “excited to partner with Point Blank who they believe to be a premier education school for electronic music producers and mentor the next chosen scholarship winner over the next six months.” Point Blank has previously partnered with other electronic music staples on scholarship opportunities, such as Resident Advisor and DJ Mag.
