  • Our BA (Hons) Music Production is the ideal choice for bringing your technical knowledge and creativity to live and studio settings

Whichever ground-breaking Music Production course you choose, we know how fundamental it is to have the best facilities and equipment around you in order to be the absolute best you can be. That’s why we’ve introduced a new state-of-the-art, purpose-built studio to match the space and facilities used by the industry itself. 

Inside BIMM Institute Berlin's new studio

“Studying at BIMM Institute has frequently allowed me to be in the studio and explore creative ways to use studio equipment that would otherwise be hard to come by. Not only do I get to experiment with the equipment, but I also take part in all sorts of productions of various genres. This has led me to try production techniques that I wouldn’t necessarily find out about on my own.

Now I feel much more confident as an engineer and producer and it’s actually possible for me to understand and harness a larger studio with vast amounts of outboard gear.”

– Rasmus Schmidt, Music Production student

Our industry-standard facilities are available to all BIMM students. For example, as a Performance or Songwriting student, you will have the opportunity to record your material alongside our Music Production students.
