The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance has announced the launch of their new three year BA Honours degree in Songwriting.

As part of the Institute’s rapidly growing Songwriting programme, the course is focused on developing each songwriter’s unique ‘creative voice’, combining both the craft and skill of songwriting with the entrepreneurial and business skills required to create a rewarding career in the music industry. The course prepares each student to graduate with a fully developed artist project.

The Institute Songwriting degree has been developed using the same wealth of experience that over twenty-five years has ensured the Institute has been consistently recognised as one of the world’s leading providers of contemporary music education. Students will have the opportunity to be taught by a range of internationally acclaimed musicians, academics, educators and songwriters including pop writer Amy Studt, producer Peter Cunnah and ASCAP senior executive Simon Greenaway. The course will be delivered at the Institute’s specialist facilities in London, UK.

Sophie Daniels, Programme Leader on the Institute Songwriting course, had this to say:

“We’re delighted to be offering a degree in Songwriting and I believe there is no better place to study than at the Institute. We have spent many years developing our Songwriting courses and now we are able to offer young musicians the opportunity to achieve a degree in the subject.”

Past Songwriting students have gone onto great success, most recently Elena Tonra and Igor Haefeli, graduates of the Songwriting Diploma who have gone on to sign a major publishing deal with Universal Records.
