ICMP hosted its inaugural Research and Development Conference with discussions and talks presented from across the faculty.

Held at ICMP, the day saw presentations from a number of tutors and academics exploring a range of topics.

Subjects included the impact of social media, performance anxiety, how to reduce the risk of injury while playing the guitar and the idea of the 'gift economy' as a future music industry model. 

Commenting, Tony Harris, ICMP’s Dean of Academic studies, said: 

The conference was a great starting point for a number of new conversations; there were themes around songwriting, innovations in the music industry, and well-being for musicians - all linked to how we help our students sustain long-term careers in music.

He continued:

The range of expertise we have across the faculty outstrips many traditional university music departments, and research at ICMP is designed to be inclusive of all tutors.  It aids our development as teachers and practitioners and ultimately benefits the students."
