IMW helped me to make the jump from destitute musician to working music producer. I did the IMW H.E. course and went on the get a first-class BA at the London Collage of Music (UWL). I now produce all kinds of artists, work in large format recording studios and make music for advertising. IMW Campus has a team of very dedicated people and I am hugely grateful for everything they did to support me through that transition and for giving me the confidence and practical skills to build a career in music. It led to jobs at some of London’s top recording studios and to a career as a freelance engineer and producer. Thank you IMW.

I joined IMW for the Fast-track Music Production course and followed that up with HND in Music Technology. With that qualification I got into the University of West London and gained a BA (Hons) of Arts in Music Technology.
I believe IMW was a great choice for me, it gave me the opportunity to learn a lot in all aspects of Music Production, Studio Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Post-Production, Live Sound and DAW’s.
Having access to professional studios, a wide range of SSL desks including SSL Duality, SSL Matrix, and SSL Nucleus for individual work stations gave me a lot of confidence to develop my technical skills in all aspects of music production, recording, mixing and mastering.
I had the opportunity to study with renowned Teachers who were essential in order to develop my confidence, skills and to progress towards my goals within the music industry.
Since my graduation in 2017 I have been working with Live Sound. I work as an Audio Engineer for all kinds of corporate events and live shows. I am extremely happy with my career choices and the work I’ve been doing for the past years. The Music Production course at IMW was essential for me, I am very grateful for being part of the IMW Alumni’s family and I highly recommend IMW for anyone looking for a career within the music industry”.
