Congratulations to music student Kangmin Kim, winner of ICMP's scholarship in collaboration with South Korea’s Schoolmusic.

The ICMP scholarship competition in South Korea is an annual event organised with Schoolmusic, a leading South Korean online retailer of musical instruments and equipment. 

The competition was established in 2013 and every year ICMP chooses a winner from applicants who uploaded a music video to the Schoolmusic website's online platform. 

The prize includes a music software voucher worth over £1,000, an ICMP online Elevate courses bundle as well as 10 live online one-to-one lessons with an ICMP tutor. 

The latest winner is a guitar player named Kangmin Kim, a busy session guitarist and guitar tutor in South Korea. 

Commenting on winning, Kangmin said: "I think it was very lucky. I didn't expect to win at all. This experience has given me a lot of confidence to carry on playing guitar."

Thank you very much to ICMP for giving me this opportunity and choosing me as the winner. I also really enjoyed the one-to-one lessons with an ICMP tutor; it opened a whole new world of guitar playing for me."

Ace, ICMP's Head of Industry Partnerships and Business Development, said: "This has always been a great competition for discovering great musical talent and learning about current musical trends in South Korea, as well as working closely with the number one retailer in the marketplace who offer their support and advice in our partner school activities."

Due to language differences, Min Woo Han, ICMP alumnus and accomplished guitar tutor in Seoul, administered the lessons this time for Kangmin.

Previously, scholarship winners have enjoyed lessons with ICMP Tutors including Mauro Lacandia and Tolis Zavaliaris.
