LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hip-hop lovers hoping to make a career out making dope beats can now get schooled on living a hard knock life.

Instead of choosing art or philosophy as a college major, the Point Blank online music production school is offering folks the chance to learn about something they truly love that’ll disappoint their parents just as much.

The school has been training DJs, music producers, songwriters, and sound engineers for more than 15 years, and has a long roster of tutors who are experts in all styles of beatmaking. Singer Leona Lewis even took classes there.

CEO Rob Cowan says the school teaches the basics of making sweet party jams and sets up students to graduate into a successful career in the music industry.

However, they don’t teach all the important elements of hip-hop, including swagger and how to perfect the style of a rapper, so posers can’t learn to fake street cred.
