BIMM London

Now one of a network of colleges across the UK, Ireland and Germany, BIMM London has established itself as one of the capital’s leading modern music schools. BIMM has an excellent record of graduates gaining employment in the music business, and has seen many of its students go on to big things – George Ezra, James Bay, The Kooks and Marina Diamandis are all BIMM alumni.

The college also prepares students for careers behind the scenes, with many working in areas such as publishing, A&R, songwriting and production. BIMM’s contacts book is impressive enough to draw music legends in to impart their wisdom in masterclasses – the likes of Brian May, The Edge, Nile Rodgers and KT Tunstall have all popped into BIMM in recent years.

Its courses are wide-ranging, covering guitar, bass, drums and vocals, as well as areas such as live sound and event management, and with all BIMM tutors experienced music industry professionals, students benefit from first-hand knowledge and guidance throughout their studies.
