Why Choose Music Production?

Learn all about BIMM's Music Production Courses

Great producers are born at BIMM. Whether you take our two-year diploma or three-year degree, you’ll leave with everything you need to break into the music industry and carve out a fast-lane career at the mixing desk and beyond. Your BIMM production course will teach you far more than working the dials. Our expert tutors are here to give you the specialist knowledge, invaluable contacts and multi-faceted skill set to unlock every door in the modern music industry.

Perhaps you see yourself as a first-call producer working with legendary bands in studios around the world. Maybe you’ve got a hard-drive full of demos but need help to turn them into a world-beating album, or dream of establishing yourself as a composer for games, film and TV. Whatever ambition brings you to BIMM, our comprehensive courses are laser-focused on bringing your skills and business abilities beyond the levels that employers demand.

This is BIMM. You’d expect the most respected tutors and highest levels of modern music tuition. But your production course doesn’t end in the class room. Study at any of our seven international colleges and you’ll dive deep into the BIMM community, enjoying a life full of music as you and your peers collaborate on projects, share the studio and hit the town.

If production is your passion, then BIMM is your launchpad. Take your first step.

WHAT TO EXPECT

All killer. No filler. BIMM’s production courses are structured to help you develop both as an artist and industry professional. Every step of the way, you’ll be guided by our expert tutors – all current and respected figures with years of expertise to pass on. But that doesn’t mean you can’t go off the map, with a varied curriculum designed to prep’ your skill-set for employment.

For upcoming producers making their first moves, nothing beats hands-on experience in the studio. At BIMM, you’ll get all the time you need to master the gear in our cutting-edge Apple Mac and SSL mix suites. Drill into industry-standard software like Ableton, Logic and Pro Tools. Harness our powerful studio facilities and hardware as you hone your recording and editing chops. Then match those real-world skills with tuition in Audio Theory & Acoustics, Mixing & Arrangement, Creative Sound Studies and Music & Sound For The Moving Image.

Our courses are both academically and musically challenging, providing the perfect balance between practical and technical skills, theory and analysis. When you’re not behind the desk, you’ll be exploring and developing potential career pathways through research and professional projects, and learning the vital business skills that drive the modern industry.

You’ll want to plug into one-of-a-kind networking opportunities and collaborate with like-minded fellow musicians during your time on the course. And that couldn’t be easier, with access to the BIMM Connect service letting you hook up fast with fellow student producers, songwriting collaborators, press agents, artist managers and event promoters.

One size doesn’t fit all – so BIMM’s production course puts you in control, tailoring the content to hit your own personal targets. Some students will max out their CV with a choice of optional modules including Live Sound Production, Computer Music Performance, Immersive Environments and Video & Multimedia Production. Others will diversify their skill-set with our five-week, mid-term BIMM Extra mini modules: choose from areas as varied as Photoshop and Video Editing, Mindfulness Techniques, Essay Writing Skills, Entrepreneurship – and more.

Masterclasses

At BIMM, you’ll learn from the best. Alongside our industry-leading tutors, BIMM’s regular masterclasses get you up close and personal with the producers at the top of the tree. But don’t come to a BIMM masterclass expecting autographs and hot air. Our A-list guests are here to share their hard-won knowledge, offer up their brains for picking, give you the career hacks you won’t find in any textbook and guide you around the pitfalls.

What Our Students Say

Frank Collins : BIMM Dublin

I chose to study Music Production because I think the production behind a song or album can have a bigger impact than people think. For instance The Beatles wouldn’t have sounded the same without George Martin. I think production used creatively can make a good album a great album, which is something George Martin did with The Beatles.

I am really in to manipulating sounds, using effects, and finding out how they work, which is something I get to explore by studying Music Production at BIMM. Another reason I chose production was that it opens a door to sound design for film and video games as well as music, which are also areas that peak my interest.
