As well as his strong position in the music industry, Dave holds previous experience in education at the University of East London where he established their Music Business degree and saw many of his graduates go on to successful careers in the music industry.

“Dave was a great teacher and his help and encouragement played a huge part in me getting my first break into the Music Industry” – Isabel Dakin, Marketing Assistant, Sony Music.‘

Some of you might already know Dave from his involvement in chairing ‘Music Industry Mondays’, our free series of events providing discussion about music industry issues from significant music business guests, including Steve Tilley (Ed Sheeran, The 1975), Miller Williams (Kobalt), Lorraine Long (Rag ‘n’ Bone Man) and many more.

Dave says, “I am completely chuffed to be joining the team at LCCM. The Music Box campus in Waterloo is amazing and both their staff and students are quite exceptional. I think together we can make a real difference to the quality and relevance of music industry education over the next few years. I can’t wait to get started.”

We are very excited to welcome Dave Wibberley to our team and know he will be invaluable to our growing involvement in the music industry and beyond.
