ICMP’s one-year CertHE Creative Musicianship is a newly redesigned programme which will help you explore your unique artistic identity, provide you with an extensive introduction to how the music industry operates, and guide you on your first steps towards success as a highly skilled creative artist. Suitable for vocalists and instrumentalists, the programme is ideal for those looking to eventually become entrepreneurial and creative music professionals with varied and enduring portfolio careers. Through a practical and theoretical examination of performance, composition and music business, you’ll improve your technical understanding of musical language and begin to explore your potential for a career in music and the creative industries. The modules address a variety of specialisms within creative music practice, ensuring you acquire skills in creative collaboration, songwriting, recording, entrepreneurship and career development. The programme also lets you progress an individual learning path relevant to your preferred way of learning, interests and ultimate career journey, and there are ongoing opportunities to explore the areas you feel support your personal artistic goals. You’ll be encouraged to consider a variety of different directions as a creative artist, but will make your own decisions about what’s best for your future career.​ You’ll be supported and mentored by exceptionally experienced tutors – all experts in the creative industries – while also learning how to work autonomously. With a strong focus on entrepreneurship, the course introduces you to tried-and-tested approaches to building yourself as a successful brand and business. Tailored to reflect the realities of the modern music industry, it gives you access to regular masterclasses, industry events and visits by special guest musicians. At the conclusion of your year of study with ICMP, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a versatile and confident self-producing creative artist, with the entrepreneurial skills, networking contacts and drive to succeed, and an artistic uniqueness to stand out from the crowd. SUBJECT TO VALIDATION Please note, this course is currently subject to validation from the University of East London and module details may change.
