Whether you’re a born performer or music is something you’ve always wanted to try, come and join us for five days of unforgettable live performance experience this summer. You’ll dive deep into the world of music as you learn, create, play and, most importantly, have fun with likeminded musicians and music lovers.
Across the week, you’ll be led by our expert industry-active ICMP tutors, taking inspiration from your fellow students and bandmates. Each day, you’ll further develop your musical ability and proficiency on your instrument across a range of challenging lessons. You’ll grow your knowledge of theory and technique while playing, creating and performing music on your chosen instrument.
Summer School instruments include:
The best part for me was being able to sit down with a world-class drummer and learn from him. Actually, it’s hard to pick a best part!”
At the beginning of the week, you’ll be placed in a band with fellow instrumentalists and performers. From there you’ll learn a selection of new songs, with help from your tutors, to sharpen your musicianship skills and improve your ability to play as part of a group. You’ll participate in daily workshops and masterclasses, directed by specialist tutors and industry professionals, which will inspire, guide and challenge you to further your industry experience and technical know-how.
For me, I loved the people – how we shared the same interests and got together and rehearsed. Then, at the end, we performed in front of everyone.”
Over the five days of Summer School, you’ll strengthen your instrument abilities in both the practice room and on stage thanks to regular instrumental classes and band workshops. You’ll develop an innovative technical shorthand that will improve your natural musical instinct and lift your performance to new heights. Your recently acquired skills will shine in an exciting live performance where your confidence and newfound abilities will be on show for all to see.

During the Summer School, you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Jam with other musicians

- Grow your network of like-minded musicians
- Perform at a London music venue with your band
