WHAT TO EXPECT
All killer. No filler. BIMM’s production courses are structured to help you develop both as an artist and industry professional. Every step of the way, you’ll be guided by our expert tutors – all current and respected figures with years of expertise to pass on. But that doesn’t mean you can’t go off the map, with a varied curriculum designed to prep’ your skill-set for employment.
For upcoming producers making their first moves, nothing beats hands-on experience in the studio. At BIMM, you’ll get all the time you need to master the gear in our cutting-edge Apple Mac and SSL mix suites. Drill into industry-standard software like Ableton, Logic and Pro Tools. Harness our powerful studio facilities and hardware as you hone your recording and editing chops. Then match those real-world skills with tuition in Audio Theory & Acoustics, Mixing & Arrangement, Creative Sound Studies and Music & Sound For The Moving Image.
Our courses are both academically and musically challenging, providing the perfect balance between practical and technical skills, theory and analysis. When you’re not behind the desk, you’ll be exploring and developing potential career pathways through research and professional projects, and learning the vital business skills that drive the modern industry.
You’ll want to plug into one-of-a-kind networking opportunities and collaborate with like-minded fellow musicians during your time on the course. And that couldn’t be easier, with access to the BIMM Connect service letting you hook up fast with fellow student producers, songwriting collaborators, press agents, artist managers and event promoters.
One size doesn’t fit all – so BIMM’s production course puts you in control, tailoring the content to hit your own personal targets. Some students will max out their CV with a choice of optional modules including Live Sound Production, Computer Music Performance, Immersive Environments and Video & Multimedia Production. Others will diversify their skill-set with our five-week, mid-term BIMM Extra mini modules: choose from areas as varied as Photoshop and Video Editing, Mindfulness Techniques, Essay Writing Skills, Entrepreneurship – and more.
