Experience the ICMP community

like one of our own.

If you're looking to study one of our Music Production courses, our experience days are FREE hands-on taster sessions held at our ICMP London campus.  Each Experience day is made up of workshops, classes and masterclass sessions, giving you the opportunity to learn new skills, master new techniques, interact with your potential tutors and meet your fellow class members.

Masterclasses, recording sessions and facilities tour

The day runs from 11am to 4pm, with lunch included. You will attend a morning and afternoon session: during the morning session,  you will attend a 2 hours lesson going through advanced  techniques on software such as Logic Pro X and Ableton by our Music Production tutors. During the afternoon session, you will apply learnt skills to your own work with the supervision of our tutors.

In between, you'll get to have a tour of the ICMP campus in Kilburn, guided by our staff; you'll be able to see our fantastic facilities, from our classrooms and performance studios, to our recording studios and tech labs: everything across the two buildings!

Following the tour, you'll meet the team at The Hub, our music industry experts and career counselors, which will explain and talk you through their role in helping shape the careers and opportunities of our students.
