BIMM Berlin is the sixth and newest campus to open in the BIMM family, and the first on mainland Europe. The school is quickly establishing itself as the go-to option in the city for music students who wish to develop as performers and launch their careers.
The fourth BIMM Berlin Open Day provided another opportunity for the college to show off its achievements, and its facilities, staff and study options, and gave plenty of curious would-be undergraduates a chance to see behind the scenes and imagine themselves as BIMM Berlin students.
The event took place on Saturday 20th June at Privatclub on Skalitzer Strasse, Berlin, opening with welcome speeches and an overview of the courses on offer, as well as the career opportunities that are part and parcel of being a BIMM student. Both prospective students and industry representatives attended the busiest Open Day event yet, and excitement was expressed across the board for the new BIMM Centre.
After the introductory talks, applicants were taken for a site visit around the BIMM Building at Noisy Academy on Warschauer Strasse where they were given tours of the facilities by BIMM Berlin partners, Noisy Musicworld. Students were able to get more detailed information about potential courses of interest and ways to apply.
No BIMM event is complete without some live music of course, and the sounds for the day were provided by BIMM alumni artists all the way from Brighton, LuAmi and The DuBarrys. Guests were also treated to special Q&A’s with drummer Mike Joyce of The Smiths and Tina Funk, General Manager of music site Vevo.
Following on from recent exciting staff appointments, such as legendary drummer Budgie joining the BIMM Berlin as Drum tutor, plus the first official live event, with a Q&A session with Kasabian’s Ian Mathews, there’s plenty happening in Berlin right now and the Open Day had lots to be proud of.
