ICMP 2009 Drum (and guitar, bass, vocals) scholarships

London’s Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) announce, in partnership with Mapex, Paiste and Drummer Magazine, the launch of its 2009 drum scholarship programme.

The winner will receive a free place, worth £5,250, on the Institute’s renowned Higher Diploma course starting in October 2009, whilst the runner-up will receive a £2,600 award for study on the same programme. The winner will also be a contributor to Drummer Magazine, the UK’s loudest drum Magazine, for a year! Applications are invited from students both from the UK and internationally.

The Higher Diploma is a specialist one-year full-time course, developed by the Institute to train and develop students of guitar, bass, drums and vocals for a career in the music industry. It was the first full-time course of its kind ever developed in the UK and achieving a place on the course continues to be an aspirational goal for young musicians. Institute alumni can be found throughout today’s music industry, working with artists of the calibre of Babyshambles, Lemar, Radiohead, Eric Clapton, Keane and KT Tunstall.

This drum scholarship is part of the annual programme of Institute scholarship awards and represents a fantastic opportunity for deserving students to access world class training and tuition at one of the world’s leading schools of contemporary music. Closing date for entries is Friday 6th March 2009 and there is always a great demand, so any interested drummers should apply now by downloading the application form at www.icmp.co.uk
