RSL Awards Launches Teach Today Programme at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance!

RSL Awards are delighted to partner with The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance’s Careers & Industry Hub to extend its Teach Today programme, helping ICMP students and alumni develop teaching as a valuable part of their portfolio careers.

Located in London, the heart of the global music industry, ICMP has been developing and delivering contemporary music education for over 30 years – longer than any other music school in the UK. The school offers a specialist range of industry-aligned courses focused on preparing musicians, producers, performers, creative artists and entrepreneurs for a successful and rewarding career in the music industry.

The Careers & Industry Hub team is also on-hand to support students and alumni throughout their studies and after their graduation as they work towards their goals. Most ICMP graduates build portfolio careers across different projects; many will look to teaching as a key revenue stream that offers flexibility and develops key transferable skills as well as enabling them to share their passion with others.

“It’s imperative that we support talented musicians with world class education materials, which is why we are delighted to extend RSL Awards’ Teach Today programme with The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. Music teaching is such an important part of a musician’s portfolio career, which is why we’re so excited to see how ICMP graduates will embrace our teaching materials on their journey to a successful music career.” Suzanne Harlow, CEO RSL Awards.
