WHAT OUR STUDENTS AND TUTORS SAY


“One of the things that I like most about studying at LCCM is the teachers. They’re great teachers, fun, relaxed, really experienced and they know a lot about what they are talking about.”

Benjamin Harrison

Cert HE Music Performance 1st year student

“I chose LCCM because the atmosphere was totally different to the other schools that I looked at, it seemed much more genuine and the teachers were really friendly.”

Sahil Batra

BMus (Hons) Performance and Production student

“I think the thing I like the most about studying here is the people: the staff and my peers make it a very encouraging environment and a very positive one. I feel like sometimes music can become quite competitive and I don’t feel that here.”

Kathleen Fitzpatrick Milton

BMus (Hons) Performance and Production student

“My favourite thing about LCCM is the fact that, having taught in a number of similar institutions, LCCM doesn’t have that corporate vibe that you get in a lot of the competition schools.”

Pete Cater

Drum Tutor

“If you are looking for a place where you want to develop your professional skills but also be very excited by the actual business of making music, then LCCM is a good place to study.”

Roland Perrin

Head of Piano

“I chose LCCM because it’s the most well-rounded music college in London. The facilities are fantastic, they offer one-to-one tuition, which is really good, and the level of teaching is really high.”

Aaron

Bass Course

“If you want to be at a school where you do performance, theory and live music every day of your life, then yes, I would recommend it.”

Tom

Bass Course

“This is the best place to go. Unlike other places that have classes of twenty to thirty people, with the one-to-ones it’s just you.”

Frankie Connolly

BMus Guitar course

“It’s been a hardworking year, but I've learnt a lot and it has been very inspiring.”

Joe

First year piano

“This course is a programme that I envisaged as interdisciplinary. It brings in musicians to work with authors, technologists and having the experience of testing all of that within a supported environment and a set of professional relevant with a mentor that does one-to-one.”

Denise Stanley

Program Leader

“Enrolling at LCCM was the best thing I've done for my music career, you have to be in London to do music.”

Andrew

First year piano

“I chose LCCM because there's no other music course that I've discovered that goes in the direction I want. Here there is a big focus on the horns, learning jazz and harmony.”

James

BMus performance course - Trumpet

“I wanted to go somewhere where I felt comfortable. Teachers are very relaxed but meticulous at the same time, making you focus on your weaknesses.”

Happiness

Singer

“You would want to come on this course if you are interested in working with musicians, writers and other people in creative media and the creative industries.”

David Harvey

Program Leader

“We give you industry-led tutors, access to professional organisations and networks that we are all part of.”

KT Foster

Program Leader

“What I'm looking for in a song writing student is someone who’s got the drive and the passion to develop the kind of discipline of writing all the time. That passion, that urgency and that need to create and express something in their songs are ideally the main ingredients we’re looking for.”

Mike McAvoy

Subject leader in Songwriting

“We’re into all sorts of music - we’re not a rock school or a pop school, we’re into everything. We’ve had heavy metal bands, jazz bands and everything in between, and this make us quite unusual.”

Darius Khwaja

Principal
