BRITISH AND IRISH MODERN MUSIC INSTITUTE
BIMM has colleges in six cities where music matters most – London, Berlin, Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham and Dublin and is proud to be the largest and leading provider of contemporary music education in the UK and Europe.
Each BIMM campus provides state-of-the-art professional facilities, with equipment and software provided by the world’s leading musical instrument manufacturers who actively support and endorse BIMM.
Nearly 80% of BIMM graduates make a living solely from the music industry.
BIMM graduates include The Kooks, Tom Odell, George Ezra and James Bay.
BIMM has over 5,500 students, all of whom have access to a range of amazing opportunities as part of their aligned network of campuses.
BIMM offers unrivalled access to the $50bn global music industry via regular collaborative experiences, including weekly Masterclasses with internationally renowned guest artists, gigs at small and large scale venues, access to industry A&R panels, connectivity with the thriving festival circuit, and the production of the annual BIMM albums.
London is at the centre of music and the arts, both in terms of national and international reputation. As a culturally diverse city with a large student population, London offers inspiration and opportunities to many musicians and artists.
Dublin has a long history of embracing creativity and celebrating diversity with a passion for live music, a large student population and one of Europe’s most vibrant arts scenes.
Attitude and ambition are synonymous with the Manchester music scene, qualities that have seen the city spawn some of the UK’s biggest bands and artists.
A thriving underground music and arts scene is at the heart of Bristol life, where individuality is celebrated and creativity rewarded.
Creativity and freedom is at the forefront of Brighton life. The city is packed with free music events, and its vibrant, vast live music scene is spread across pubs, pop-up gigs and landmark venues.
At the moment Birmingham is the UK's fastest growing music city, so it made total sense for BIMM to have a college in this vibrant city, which has a history of such a diverse range of music, including Duran Duran, The Streets, Black Sabbath, UB40, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, The Streets, Editors etc.
When it comes to music and the arts Berlin is creative, avant-garde, subversive and open-minded. It gives our students direct access to a vibrant community made up of diverse events, festivals, venues and gigs.
