London is the beating heart of the British music and creative industries. If you love music, writing words or songs or want to learn more about the modern music business, studying at the brand new London College of Contemporary Music (LCCM) campus – the Music Box in Waterloo – provides the closest link to industry and best opportunities for future work in your chosen field. You will benefit from the only purpose-built music campus in London with a live venue, three recording studios and multiple performance and rehearsal spaces.

The music degrees at LCCM are all about preparing you for a life and career in the music industry, learning from the best tutors in the business. We help our students to create or engage in new work that will be taken seriously. We regularly introduce students to producers, managers and artists looking for musicians and run workshops and field trips with our industry partners to ensure real-life and relevant experience, knowledge and skills. As a musician, songwriter or producer you will be able to master your art whilst the modules in our Music Industry Management degree are future-facing, embracing social-media marketing and the data insights needed to build audiences in the streaming economy.

Our recent graduates work at leading music companies like Domino, Notting Hill Music, Global Radio and Live Nation or are founding members of bands such as Husky Loops and Whilk and Misky. Our alumni also include major label signed solo artists like Tom Walker (Relentless/Sony) and Rhys Lewis (Decca/Universal) and the celebrated young composer Nicholas Morrish Rarity. We’re proud that many of our students become highly sought-after professional musicians and vocalists working with the likes of Dua Lipa, George Ezra, Jess Glynne, Sam Smith, Labrinth, Ellie Goulding and Jordan Rakei.

When the music industry needs professional London based talent they turn to LCCM first.
