ICMP is to host its inaugural Research and Development Conference with a day of talks and presentations spanning the breadth of ICMP’s faculty.
Taking place at ICMP on Tuesday 19th June, the event will see sessions exploring music performance, creation, production, promotion and marketing.
Topics will focus on how to write lyrics, building confidence and overcoming performance anxiety, social media and how best to use it alongside a technical study of 'The Wall of Sound'.
Dr Tony Harris, Dean of Academic Studies, said:
A key part of ICMP’s research agenda is to promote an inclusive approach to research and innovation, where all colleagues have opportunities to share their ideas and practice. This conference represents the full breadth of expertise the faculty has to offer."
The event is open to all ICMP staff and follows a successful series of Research and Development seminars held earlier in the year.
