We are extremely proud our history and heritage, unrivalled in the music education sector. We have earned a reputation for quality, excellence and success. As a result, thousands of students have chosen to study with us, making the ICMP the starting point for their careers in music.
The ICMP was founded in 1986 as the Guitar Institute and Basstech, and was the first institution to provide relevant, practical and professional training for contemporary musicians. Yet, while the name and identity of the ICMP has naturally evolved over time, the underlying focus on the needs of the students has never changed. As a result, ICMP graduates can now be found making successful careers all over the world – playing, performing, and creating or teaching music, both in their home communities and on some of the world’s greatest stages.
We offer high quality, personalized online music courses designed to help you explore your passion for music, sharpen your skills and unleash your creative potential. All of our courses are carefully designed and structured, and your pathway is guided at all times whether they are self-paced or timed. They are accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop so you can learn anytime, anywhere.
We believe that the learner/teacher relationship is key which is why in addition to the range of content provided you’ll also receive personalized feedback throughout your course. This, along with the structured programme of study, gives you the greatest chance of realizing your personal musical goals and ambitions.
We are the online school of ICMP London and we benefit from over 30 years experience in helping thousands of musicians, songwriters and music entrepreneurs achieve their musical goals.
Our course authors and tutors are not only highly experienced teachers but are also successful players, performers and music industry experts in their own right.
