For students wishing to maximise their instrumental and performance experience during their studies, the BMus (Hons) Popular Music Performance degree stands unique amongst our courses for its live-performance focus for students within their first year, enabling graduates to have an expert level of knowledge and performance on their chosen discipline.
The Performance Skills module will take you through the process of effective live performance through individual preparation, live ensemble performance and reflective practice. Weekly instrument-specific prep classes will equip you with techniques for effective part-preparation, memorisation and rehearsal strategies. The Live Performance Workshop component will provide you with the opportunity to further your skillset through full-band live performance. Here you will receive guided feedback and feedforward from lecturers and peers to help further your own reflective practice. This will be recorded in a weekly Reflective Journal. You will be encouraged to develop confidence on stage, and the necessary arrangement and communication skills for professional live performance.
At BIMM Institute, you’ll only learn from world-class lecturers. These are the people who live and breathe music. Many are highly respected vocalists themselves, with long lists of achievements and accolades under their belt. And with all these accomplishments comes knowledge, experience and tips that you won’t find anywhere else.
They can provide you with those essential insider tips and exclusive knowledge. It’s their role to help you step into the music industry too.
Exclusive networking opportunities
At BIMM Institute, we believe that collaboration is key. That’s why you’ll have access to exclusive networking opportunities that connect you to the people who can help your industry career. Plus, you’ll have access to BIMM Connect – our own exclusive social media platform. Here, you’ll be able to team up and network with fellow students, alumni, bands, songwriters, press agents, managers and promoters to get the most out of your time here.
Internships and opportunities
What better way to learn the tools of the trade than by getting real life experience under your belt? Our specialist Careers and Industry Teams are here to help you do just that. Thanks to their unrivalled contacts and insider connections, they’ll link you up with real-world experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Being a BIMM student also means you get access to exclusive opportunities other music students could only dream of. This includes the chance to perform at some of the best festivals on the planet (like The Great Escape Festival, Brighton Pride and Glastonbury); performing at our end-of-term gigs; and collaborating with students from other disciplines including Music Business, Event Management, and more.
