The guitar programme combines instrumental study with the opportunity to develop collaborative and entrepreneurial skills while performing a wide range of original and adapted music.
At BIMM Berlin, we understand that live performance is the key to you becoming a great guitarist, so you’ll spend a lot of time on stage to help you develop and find your niche as a performer. You’ll participate in weekly Live Performance Workshops (LPWs) in all three years, performing with your fellow students while receiving expert guidance from highly skilled BIMM tutors.
Perhaps the most exciting part is that you get to choose where you complete your second year of study – BIMM Berlin or BIMM London. Wherever you decide, you’ll study guitar techniques in both Years 1 and 2, ensuring the development of performance excellence is facilitated alongside the pursuit of creativity and artistry, and you’ll have the choice to continue with it in Year 3 at BIMM Berlin as an optional module.
You’ll explore and develop your potential career pathways through research and professional projects, learning the essential skills required to work successfully in the music industry.
Through a range of optional modules, including Showcase, Music for the Moving Image, Creative Technology Applications and Music Pedagogy in Practice, you can tailor the degree to fit your own personal goals.
Above all, the BA (Hons) Professional Musicianship offers an opportunity for you to explore your creative side as a musician, encouraging you to experiment with your style, try new things and push yourself to become the most unique and original individual artist you can be. As a graduate you’ll be ready to pursue a range of different career options, including artist, band leader, band member and arranger/composer.
