Alongside his production work, Ski also holds the position of Content Development Manager at Point Blank Music School and has featured in more than fifty videos for the school’s YouTube channel. His relationship with Point Blank began when he was commissioned to write an online course entitled ‘Electronic Music Composition’ which introduced the method of track deconstruction to illustrate music theory. It became one of the school’s most popular courses, and has highlighted the desire for electronic artists to acquire keyboard skills and a foundation in music theory in order to progress their tracks to a finished state.
