About The Institute
The Institute is an independent, specialist education provider widely recognised as being one of Europe's leading schools of modern music. Founded over a quarter of a century ago, we are located in the heart of London's live music scene, and we provide our students with state of the art teaching, practice and performance facilities to support a wide range of courses.
We are proud of our extensive experience in developing and delivering high-quality courses for contemporary musicians and songwriters. We have pioneered the teaching methods, curriculum and philosophy that have become the benchmarks for contemporary music education, and we are able to offer the kind of rigorous training that conservatoires have offered classical musicians for centuries. And our teaching faculty, almost all of whom are actively involved in the music business whether as educators, professional musicians or creative artists, is unrivalled in the UK and probably anywhere in the world.
Our retention and achievement rates are exceptional, and our graduates go on to play, perform and build careers at the highest levels in the music industry armed with the essential knowledge, expertise and contacts that we can provide. Past or present Institute students can be found everywhere, touring with the likes of Moby and The Noisettes, playing with bands like the Vaccines, Radiohead and Babyshambles and artists like Eric Clapton and Kylie Minogue, and also working as teachers all over the world.
