About BIMM Berlin

Connected to a life in music

BIMM Berlin is part of the BIMM Group – the Europe’s largest and leading contemporary music college.

We offer a selection of contemporary music degrees across a number of different disciplines, including guitar, bass, drums, vocals, songwritingmusic business and music production.

BIMM Brighton was the first BIMM college to open (2001), followed by colleges in Bristol (2008), London (2010), Dublin (2011), Manchester (2013), Berlin (2015), Birmingham (2017) and Hamburg (2018).

All eight BIMM institutes collaborate in perfect harmony, but at the same time, each individual music college has its own unique, independent regional identity which we continue to nurture.

Operating in a city which is cosmopolitan, hip, experimental, creative, historic and open-minded, our students love being part of the BIMM Berlin vibe. Our close connection to the German and international music scene means they get direct access to the most happening music venues, the coolest record labels, the most groundbreaking festivals, and the most iconic music brands in the world.
