ICMP, one of the leading popular music education centres based in London, has launched its new blog, Spotlight, featuring the best in music industry articles, insight and advice.
With pieces written by contributors from leading music industry organisations, think tanks and commentators alongside our own in-house experts, the blog will act as an information hub to help ICMP’s students as well as emerging acts take the first steps in their careers.
To kick Spotlight off to a flying start initial articles include pieces from BBC Music Introducing, Help Musicians UK and the Musicians’ Union as well as ICMP tutor and Jamiroquai multi-instrumentalist Nathan Williams. Future content and insight is planned from music industry events including BBC Music Introducing’s Amplify.
Jim Ottewill, social media and content manager, said: ‘We’re delighted to launch our new blog Spotlight, which we hope will become the online destination as a definitive resource for new artists launching their music industry careers, provide an insight into student life at ICMP and illustrate the student journey from the classroom to top flight industry roles.’
New articles on the blog include 11 tips to help you improve how you use social media, how to be a radio plugger with Hart Media’s Poppy Raine, How to use BBC Music Introducing and How to Join a Touring Musical with Doug Weekes.
