Each undergraduate & graduate music course at AIM maintains its own Head of Department, with its own list of professional music, entertainment & performing arts teachers. We also have a fulltime student services support team, marketing/admissions team, web team & purposed music library. AIM students can individually tailor their studies to integrate performance skills, business management, marketing, individual instrument or voice lessons, audio & sound engineering, music production and many more specialised units. Some students also undertake industry placements as part of their course. With purpose built facilities, performance spaces, industry standard music production studios - and industry staff on-hand, students can develop the confidence and skills needed to pursue a successful life-long career in the music industry, performing arts & wider entertainment fields.
