Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone!

    I'm new here and have recently decided to look into studying songwriting at a connected industry college. Seems like the above three are the best in London.

    I would very much like a comparison of the degree courses, or even HE degrees if anyone has any experiences they'd like to share, for example module content, that'd be great!

    I have already auditioned at BIMM London and have been recommended a place, but was a little put off by how much the assessor rushed me through it and didnt even both to listen to my songs all the way through, but perhaps this was just an off day. Bit worried though as I have seen some bad reviews on this place. I really liked it when I first visited though.

    I'd like a course that allows me to brush up on my other instrumental skills too, whether through tutorials or non credit modules if necessary. It seems like BIMM doesnt give you much in the way of theory/aural too? How does that compare to ICMP?

    Basically, I want to learn something and be worthwhile my time, but I also really want a place with excellent industry connections, and lots of opportunities.

    I also saw that ACM metropolis does a Songwriting with Creative Artistry two year accelerated degree. This looks great, and as my second degree would be great as only 2 years . Has anyone taken this course? And does it go into depth of songwriting at all? Is it less connected with industry and other students, with only being that one course at that campus?

    Many thanks!
