This one-year practical and vocational course is ideal if you want to further your musical abilities on a part-time basis of 4.5 hours a week.
At BIMM Dublin, we understand that a mixture of theory and practice is the key to you becoming a great songwriter, so you’ll spend a lot of time working on your songwriting techniques, composition and arrangement methods, and musicianship skills. You’ll learn what makes a brilliant pop song by studying a selection of those that display a good dose of much sought-after songwriting magic.
Highly skilled BIMM tutors will be on hand to offer friendly guidance and expert advice, all of who have had vast experience in the music industry, and continue to be a part of the business today. During your time on the course you’ll connect with likeminded fellow musicians for exciting collaboration projects, and will get to plug into one-of-a-kind networking opportunities, such as Masterclasses with global music industry professionals and the BIMM end-of-term gigs. All in all, it’s a fantastic part-time introduction to modern music and the industry that surrounds it.
The course is fully validated by BIMM Institute, and successful completion will gain you 60 CATS credits. Graduates achieve 60 Level 4 CATS credits at UK Level 4 which is the equivalent to 30 ECTS at Level 6 on the Irish National Framework of Qualifications. It’s a great gateway to either taking your first steps in a music industry career, or continuing on with study in the form of the BA (Hons) in Commercial Modern Music – Songwriting at BIMM.
