About BIMM Berlin

Connected to a life in music

BIMM Berlin is part of the BIMM Group – Europe’s largest and leading contemporary music college.

We offer a selection of contemporary music degrees across a number of different disciplines, including guitar, bass, drums, vocals, songwritingmusic business and music production.

BIMM Brighton was the first BIMM college to open (2001), followed by colleges in Bristol (2008), London (2010), Dublin (2011), Manchester (2013), Berlin (2015), Birmingham (2017) and Hamburg (2018).

All eight BIMM institutes collaborate in perfect harmony, but at the same time, each individual music college has its own unique, independent regional identity which we continue to nurture.

BIMM Berlin is at the epicentre of Europe’s music scene. Our students thrive in the city’s creative, experimental and international environment. Our close connection to Berlin’s international music scene means they get direct access to some of the most iconic music venues, record labels, festivals, and music brands in the world.

BIMM Berlin students attend lessons taught in English at our state of the art new building: the ‘House of Music’. Situated in the R.A.W. area between Warschauer Str. and Ostkreuz, we are at the intersection of Berlin’s two most creative districts, Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg.

We provide the very best professional facilities in over 2,000m² of space across three floors. Our facilities include recording studios, Mac labs, live performance spaces, tutorial rooms, a community networking space, and a multitude of teaching spaces.

Our equipment and software are delivered by the world’s leading musical instrument manufacturers who actively support and endorse us. We have a community café shared by prominent music industry companies, such as those within music management, consulting, media and events agencies, as well as developers and producers of music equipment. This gives our students an instant connection to the local creative and music community – and ample opportunities for work experience.

All degrees at BIMM Berlin are validated by the prestigious University of Sussex– a Top 25 UK university listed in the Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings and highly rated for research in the 2019 QS World Rankings.

Our tutors are experts in educational excellence as well as being active in the global music scene as experienced performers, songwriters, producers and music business professionals.

Between them, they have toured worldwide with international acts, interviewed some of the biggest artists and bands in the world, written best-selling rock biographies and appeared on TV and radio as music commentators. All of our tutors and staff have one goal in mind: to help students achieve a sustainable career in music.

These include Masterclasses by music industry legends like performance artist extraordinaire Peaches, celebrated Berghain DJ, producer and label owner, Steffi, and resident Berghain DJ, producer, label manager and magazine editor Nick Höppner.
