BIMM Music Summer Schools
Calling all guitarists, bassists, drummers and vocalists who are looking to rock out this summer!
Every year at BIMM we run a range of Summer Schools for musicians looking to develop their technique and confidence as live performers. So if you're a guitarist, singer, bassist or drummer a BIMM summer school is a fantastic way to spend your break.
We run two different courses, the Music Radar Summer School for those who love classic rock and the Metal Hammer Summer School for all the metal heads out there. Each Summer School is a 5 day week and will consist of dedicated tuition on your instrument, followed by a live performance workshop every afternoon to hone your performance skills on a stage guided by your tutors and a different special guest each day. The last day will involve forming bands, rehearsing your favourite track of the week in preparation for an afternoon performance for your friends and family.
The Summer Schools are open to all musicians who are not absolute beginners on their instrument, and are aged 11+. We always have a good range of ages on the Summer Schools, so remember you're never too old or too young to rock out!
