The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, widely regarded as one of the world’s leading providers of music education, is investing over a quarter of a million pounds in the learning environment in the coming year.

The investment provides both an enhancement of the existing facilities and provision of new professional equipment, including a broadcast quality recording studio, bespoke teaching rooms, live performance spaces, drum booths, keyboard and technology suites, student recreation areas and associated facilities.

As part of this on-going investment, the Institute is also expanding its London facilities by over 40% resulting in the London campus extending to over 20,000 square feet of new, custom built, facilities. Paul Kirkham, Managing Director at the Institute, said:mac lab young academic

‘We are delighted to announce this new expansion and investment in our facilities in London. We have been focusing on the reorganisation and upgrading of the Institute for several years now, and this is the next phase in our plans to continually provide our students with state-of-the-art equipment in a learning environment of the highest quality.

The extra space will benefit all students and allow us to further develop our teaching provision, across a focused portfolio of industry relevant courses covering music practice, performance, songwriting and music business. New technology will be incorporated at every level, and the enhanced environment will further support our students as they pursue their studies and develop the skills needed to make a career in the music industry.

We are starting the works this summer, which means that continuing students and those enrolling on an Institute course for the first time in September will immediately benefit from these changes. The investment and expansion will continue throughout the year, culminating in summer 2013.’
