BIMM Institute is set to become the best-connected music college in Europe, when it opens the doors of its newest college in Berlin in October.

BIMM Institute is set to become the best-connected music college in Europe, when it opens the doors of its newest college in Berlin in October.

BIMM (British and Irish Modern Music Institute) is already UK and Ireland’s best-connected modern music college, producing a string of respected, chart-topping artists, including BRIT winners Tom Odell and James Bay, chart-topper George Ezra and million-selling rock band The Kooks.

Uniquely, all BIMM Berlin students will be offered the opportunity to study their second year at BIMM London, giving them vital experience, connections and a head start in the two centres of the European music industry.

The college will offer UK degrees validated by the ,University of West London: BA (Hons) Creative Musicianship courses in Drums, Bass, Vocals and Guitar, as well as BA (Hons) Music Business and BA (Hons) Songwriting courses, all taught in English.

Berlin is the perfect location to continue the mix of top-quality education and close music industry integration that BIMM has built its stellar reputation on.

Vaseema Hamilton, principal of BIMM’s London, Brighton and Bristol colleges, said:

“Opening BIMM Berlin has long been a personal goal of mine, and just like Brighton, Bristol, Dublin, Manchester and London, Berlin is a creative and forward-thinking city. It is a perfect place for our students to study and develop their talent. They will gain a fantastic introduction to Berlin's unique music scene and contemporary culture.

“I don't believe there is any other current contemporary music industry institute that is offering the incredible option to study in both Berlin and London; and with the wealth of transport options, it's so easy for students to move between these two amazing cities.”

BIMM is working in one of the most highly-regarded and high-spec music facilities in the vibrant Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district of Berlin, managed by its partner Noisy Musicworld.

They’re the perfect partner for the best possible learning experience, offering suites of the latest Mac and Ableton equipment and some of the most impressive rehearsal rooms in the city. Robert Witoschek, the Noisy Academy Manager, is excited too:

"We are really looking forward to cooperating with BIMM. This will close the gap between Berlin’s music scene and the high standards of Britain’s music education and music scene. We have the same philosophy as BIMM, so we can’t wait to welcome the BIMM students here in Berlin.” short promo video

BIMM Berlin’s first Open Day is on February 14th 2015, when the city will begin falling in love with Berlin’s newest and best modern music college.Link to site

FURTHER QUOTES FROM VASEEMA HAMILTON:

“Every time we open a new BIMM Institute there is a sense of incredible personal privilege to be involved in the project, and opening BIMM Berlin has long been a personal goal of mine.

“We choose each BIMM location carefully, to ensure that each college has its own unique feel and music industry heritage.

“Just like Brighton, Bristol, Dublin, Manchester and London, Berlin is a creative and forward-thinking city: a perfect place for our students to study and develop their talent. They will gain a fantastic introduction to Berlin's unique music scene and contemporary culture.

“It's a city with a complex cultural past and an open mind — a city where ideas are formed and new connections are made. Students joining us in Berlin will explore the cultural past and contribute to the future of contemporary music, and network with like-minded people from all over the world.

“Importantly, the three year degree program in Berlin is also the same as the one offered at BIMM London: so any Berlin student will be able to spend their second year of study in London, and London students will be able to study in Berlin for a year too.

“I don't believe there is any other current contemporary music industry institute that is offering this incredible option to students; and with the wealth of transport options, it's so easy for students to move between these two amazing cities.”
