BIMM School Tours

Get a taste of BIMM life

Throughout the year, BIMM visits schools and colleges to talk to students about careers in the music industry and about the music diplomas and degrees that BIMM offers.

Our tours are an interactive experience featuring live music as well as a presentation and Q&A session with our experienced college tours team.

We’ve consistently had great feedback from the schools and colleges we visit, complimenting us on the mix of entertainment and information we manage to pack into one of our tour events.

At BIMM we offer courses in music performance, focusing on Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals, Songwriting and Production that are perfect for music students, however we also offer courses in Music Business and Event Management which are a great option for business and media students looking at a career in the entertainment and arts industries.
