ICMP is one of the Europe’s leading providers of contemporary music education. We have been developing and delivering degree and postgraduate courses in music for longer than any other UK-based school from our campus in London. 

We offer a specialist range of music industry-aligned Masters Programmes, Music degrees, Diplomas & 1 year Higher Education Programmes (HNC/CERT HE) for students of Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals, Songwriting, Music Production and Music Business. These courses are all focused on preparing musicians, producers, performers, creative artists and entrepreneurs for a successful and rewarding career in the music industry.

We pride ourselves on our small class sizes, 121 tuition, high number of teaching contact hours, personalised approach to student engagement, regular one-to-one support, and dynamic use of technology in the classroom – innovations you just won’t find to the same extent at any other modern music college.  Our personalised learning approach means we really get to know you as a musician. We’ll provide a learning experience that’s unique to you, and will work with you to nurture your natural talent, explore your future ambitions, and provide ongoing opportunities for live performances, auditioning, songwriting, recording and touring. We understand that each student will have different career motivations and your vision of ‘success’ will be unique, so we encourage you to follow your own individual path. At ICMP, your future is in your hands, and you’ll graduate feeling emboldened and inspired, with the tools, connections, self-confidence and head start you need to drive your career in the music industry forward.

Building a career in the music industry is a real challenge, but at ICMP we have been helping our students successfully achieve their goals for over 30 years. And we must be doing something right, because 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.*
