We were delighted to welcome more than 100 students to ICMP for our fortnight of Summer Schools.
Leading songwriting and ICMP tutor Gerard O'Connell also led a masterclass, divulging his songwriting secrets of working with some of pop music's leading stars including Dua Lipa and Rita Ora.
Each week culminated with an afternoon of live performances from the students in front of family and friends.
Scott Colcombe, Part Time Course Coordinator, said:
It was honestly so heart warming to see communities of songwriters, producers and performers develop over these two weeks, pushing themselves day in and day out. Hopefully we'll get to see their creative partnerships flourish even after the Summer School is over.'
Some of our students also posted and shared about their experiences with us on Instagram. Check out their comments on the schools below.
Our next round of Part-Time Courses in Vocals, Ableton Live, Songwriting and Music Production begins on 4th September.
For all of us music is more than just entertainment, music helps us to show our feelings and let things out that we would never say otherwise. I learned a lot this week, made wonderful friendships and got a confirmation why I love music so much. Music is more than just something you listen to, it unites people and that's what it did to us. No matter where we come from and what our music style is, we supported and cheered each other on. Thank you @icmplondon for one of the greatest weeks.
Thank you @icmplondon for having us, I met amazing and talented people from all over the place, I learned so much throughout the week, it really opened my eyes on songwriting and I even took the chance to perform a song even though I deal with stage fright, you guys were so supportive, that is amazing and I’m going to miss you all so much ! Hopefully we’ll meet again !
