The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London, UK has launched its 2012 drum scholarships programme. These sought after awards are for study on the Institute’s renowned one year Higher Diploma drum course. And now is your chance to win a free place!
There will be one fully-funded place for the winner (worth over £5,000, which is nearly $7,750 or close to €6,000) plus a partially funded place for the runner-up (worth over £2,500).
The Higher Diploma is a specialist one-year full-time course, developed by the Institute to train and develop students of drums 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.
The Institute, widely recognised as one of Europe’s leading schools of modern music, counts on an unrivalled teaching and visiting faculty, many of whom regularly work and tour with some of the music industry’s greatest artists.
This faculty includes such names as Thomas Lang, Chuck Sabo and Dom Famularo.
Previous Institute students can be found throughout today’s music industry, for example Nathan Williams, who played with the likes of Lauryn Hill, Shola Ama, Kele le Roc, Duncan James, Shaggy, N-Dubz and Tinie Tempah. Nathan is currently playing with new RCA signing Bluey Robinson and touring and recording with Mclean.
