  • WELCOME

    BIMM London as many of you will know, previously incorporated Tech Music School, a prestigious and long standing leader in modern music education, founded in 1983. Together, the BIMM organisation and Tech Music School amalgamated their strengths and proudly opened a new site in Fulham in September 2013. As a result we are an innovative, forward thinking, dedicated institute priding ourselves on delivering high quality music education and ensuring professional standards are met by our tutors, staff and students.

    You have joined us at a very exciting time! We have spent the summer developing the facilities, growing our team of music industry experts, increasing performance and employment opportunities and expanding the already large musical connectivity we have with the industry to ensure that all of our students get the best experience possible while studying with us.

    October 2015 also sees us welcome a brand new course to BIMM London which is our BA (Hons) in Music Event Management. We believe this course is a vital addition to our music microcosm here at BIMM London and we are incredibly eager to see what the new Event Management students will bring to the BIMM table! Surrounded by exceptional and enthusiastic performers, songwriters, producers and business students, we are certain that not only event management, but all students, will have a prolific and successful year with us in 2015/16.

    As college manager, I would like to take this opportunity to again welcome you on board, and urge you to get involved. This can be anything from auditioning for our gigs, to setting up your own, from networking to helping, try to use us up and your time here as much as you can. Be creatively adventurous, while being courteous. Be a pioneer.

    Being able to indulge a passion and develop your talent is one of the greatest gifts of all, so enjoy it. Have fun!

    All the best for the coming year, and I look forward to meeting and working with as many of you as possible.

    Best,

    JULIA RUZICKA
