Academy of Electronic Music launched

Armada Music, Point Blank Music School, DJ Mag and Google+ have officially kicked off the ‘Academy of Electronic Music’. It is the world’s first socially-driven online music school, giving aspiring music producers and DJs the chance to share their best tracks, get feedback from peers, industry experts and their favorite DJs and producers, plus the chance to be mentored as the world’s next superstar producer. The ultimate prize is to get your track signed to Armada Music – awarded best global dance label for the fifth year running.

This will be driven through an all-inclusive global community but in addition, seven talented students will be selected for professional music production training provided by world-renowned music school Point Blank via their flagship Electronic Music Composition course. As education partner to the Academy, Point Blank has 20 years’ experience teaching producers how to take their music to the next level through personal one-to-one interaction with the UK’s leading producers.
