Course Description

This vocational diploma pathway is available in both two-year and one-year course options.  The two-year option is equivalent to three A Levels, whilst our one-year ‘fast track’ diploma is equivalent to two A Levels.

This course is designed to develop your skills as a professional musician, with a specific focus in Songwriting, Live Performance and Music Business.  You’ll learn to compose your own music, perform at live events, record and produce music in the studio and learn more about music theory, giving you a wider understanding of the music industry and of how to get music out to an audience.

You will develop essential composition, arrangement and studio skills, including DAW music production, theory and ear training, live performance and music industry career development.  In addition to this you will study the links between music and society, and work on a professional development project.

You’ll have a fantastic time studying a subject you feel passionate about, collaborating creatively with fellow musicians, producers and entrepreneurs, to begin connecting to the music industry.  As a BIMM student, many exciting networking opportunities will come your way, from gig opportunities to masterclasses with globally successful industry professionals – your career in music starts here!

Throughout the course you will be supported and guided toward your future career and study goals by expert tutors and prominent music industry professionals, providing you with a holistic view of the music industry and the way it operates.

Studying on the diploma is a great way to take your first steps into the music industry.  A course like this can either kickstart your career or provide a valuable foundation for study at a higher level by progressing onto one of the BIMM degree courses, such as the BA (hons) Songwriting, the BA (hons) Music Production or the BA (hons) Professional Musicianship.
