Fast track your skills with a Higher Diploma in Vocals

Studying a Higher Diploma in Music Performance at ICMP is a great way to progress your vocal ability by immersing yourself in a fully vocals-orientated musical learning environment for a one-year period. You may wish to accelerate your singing skills in order to start your career in the music industry; you may view a diploma as the first steps to studying a music degree at ICMP; or you may simply be after a fun vocals-centred gap year… but whatever the reason, studying a Higher Diploma in Vocals at ICMP London will be a year full of unique musical experiences and challenges you’ll always remember.

As an ICMP Higher Diploma Vocals student, you’ll become skilled at performing a wide range of different singing styles and will take part in classes where you’ll learn vocal techniques, sight reading, improvisation and will sing within a range of ensembles – from duets to multi-voice choirs. You’ll also study musical foundation subjects, such as aural skills, harmony and theory, and will gain an understanding of how today’s music industry operates, and the context of popular music. All your learned theory will be put to the test in regular weekly Live Performance Workshops, where you’ll join forces with your fellow classmates and together will develop your on-stage performance skills.

We pride ourselves on our personalised approach to music industry education at ICMP, and offer our Higher Diploma students focused one-to-one tuition, small class sizes, dynamic use of technology in the classroom and a high number of teaching contact hours – advantages you just won’t find at any other UK music industry education college to the same extent.

As an ICMP Higher Diploma Vocals student, you’ll be able to both use and hire a huge selection of industry-standard equipment, and can practise in our free-to-book modern rehearsal facilities. We offer high-tech Audient and Soundcraft studios, plus a range of pre-production rooms featuring DAWs and large-diaphragm capacitor mics, and boutique synths by Moog, Novation and Roland.

You’ll be able to take part in a variety of unique industry-related career development opportunities, courtesy of our exclusive partnership with Tileyard Studios in London – home to artists and companies including Mark Ronson, John Newman, Tinchy Stryder, The Prodigy, Spitfire Audio, Notting Hill Music and Marathon Artists, and also the UK’s biggest professional music community.

At ICMP, we strive to make our students the best prepared they possibly can be for a career in music. To do this, we offer them regular first-hand music industry experiences – the type of education which just can’t be taught in a classroom. We believe that the best way to learn about music is through participation, so we bring the music industry to life for each one of our students, every single day. Our goal is to make sure that, for our students, starting at ICMP also means starting in the music industry.

So why not immerse yourself in singing with a one-year Higher Diploma in Music Performance at ICMP London? It’s the ultimate space to learn, create and discover your place in the music industry.
