ICMP, based in London, has been developing and delivering music education and training to students of contemporary music for over 30 years, longer than any other UK school. We pride ourselves first and foremost on the continuing success of our alumni – who within 6 months of graduating, over  90% of our graduates are in employment or further education; around two-thirds are engaged in music-related jobs or study; and the average salary of ICMP graduates is almost 12% above that for arts graduates*.

Key to our philosophy is the understanding that every student is unique. We have always focused therefore on the needs and potential of individual students, ensuring that the music education we provide is tailored and personalised, giving you the best chance of success in the very competitive and challenging environment of the music industry.
