BIMM Institute Dublin, part of Europe’s most connected and successful music college, has today announced the launch of two new college courses which are set to be game changers for the Irish music scene.

The BIMM Institute Dublin Diploma in Music and Audio Production and the BIMM Institute Dublin Diploma in Music Business are the latest courses to be added to the range of courses available to students.

The Diploma in Music Business and Audio Production is a part-time course that will serve as a fundamental introduction to Music and Audio Production, providing students with the core knowledge, technical and creative skills required for a range of creative industries including music production, audio engineering, audio for games, broadcast, post-production, corporate audio, pro-audio sales and audio system installation.

Director of Music for 2fm Alan Swan said: “At 2FM, we have always been a big supporter of Irish talent and emerging Irish talent so offering a scholarship like this is incredibly important for what 2fm stands for, considering the amount of BIMM artists past & present that 2fm airplays or works within the industry.

"It seems like a natural progression to help nurture & support the Irish industry music talent of the future with this scholarship. It’s a privilege that we launch it today with BIMM."

BIMM Institute Dublin College Principal, Alan Cullivan said: “Here at BIMM we are over the moon to be working with Ireland’s biggest radio station for new music.

"In a way it seems as though we have always had an unofficial partnership with 2FM considering the amount of BIMM bands the station plays.

"2FM give such amazing support to new Irish artists so it’s a very easy relationship to have and we are extremely excited here in BIMM for us to be finally and officially working together.”

The Diploma in Music Business is also a part-time course and is designed to offer students a practical skillset precisely designed with future employment in mind including Music Promotion and Marketing, Artist Management, Tour Management, Physical and Digital Music Distribution, e-commerce in the Music Industry, Music Publishing and Recording, Live Music Events and Touring.

The course is ideal for those with no experience of the industry and who wish to use it as a foundation for further study or entrepreneurship.

BIMM is the largest and leading provider of music education in Europe and have taken raw talents and turned them into industry professionals, earning a living doing what they love.

Both programmes will be delivered at BIMM Institute Dublin, Irelands most vibrant and diverse community of musicians providing unique opportunities for collaborative student learning, as well as direct connectivity to an industry that will enhance future career prospects.

The courses, like all qualifications at BIMM Institute Dublin, are delivered by tutors with experience working at the highest levels of the music business, which ensures that the delivery of this qualification will be distinctive, relevant and uniquely cutting edge.
