From education to employment


LCCM, London’s higher education music college, is hosting Youth Jam this half-term, a free one-day interactive performance masterclass for musicians on Friday 18 February. 

Aimed at young instrumentalists aged 16 to 19, the masterclass will allow teenagers across the capital to perform on stage, network with leading session musicians and learn what it means to be a skilled instrumentalist. The event will be held in LCCM’s own venue, The Music Box, which has recently hosted the likes of Moses Boyd, Amber Run, DECO and Novelist.

The young musicians will meet at LCCM’s campus at 241 Union St, London SE1 0LR and the band masterclass will start at 10.30 a.m. Lunch will be provided with an opportunity to network between 12.00 pm and 1 pm. There will then be a tour of the Music Box, followed by a jam session before the day ends at 3 pm.

“This is a great opportunity for teenagers to get a taste of the music industry,” says LCCM’s Youth Music Officer, Evie Asio. “Not only will they have a chance to jam, but they can also pick the brains of the experts.”

Earlier this month, LCCM’s Music Box proved to be an inspiring and aspirational venue for workshops and away days for 15 Ark Scholars embarking on an exciting new music journey with the launch of the Ark ‘Inspiring Excellence’ Music Scholarship.

LCCM is the highest-ranked provider of music performance and music business degrees in the UK by student satisfaction (NSS 2019, 2020 & 2021).

About LCCM

London College of Creative Media (LCCM) – formerly London Centre of Contemporary Music, is the highest-ranked provider of music performance and music business degrees in the UK by student satisfaction (NSS 2019, 2020 & 2021). 

We believe we can collectively change the music industry for the better – helping to bring about a fairer, more diverse, better educated and musically more exciting future! We’ve been doing this since 2002, when our founders, all professional musicians themselves, decided to launch a new college for contemporary popular music in the centre of London. The aim was to create a new approach to teaching music that mixed the best of the good universities and conservatories with an art school environment. 

We’ve always been based on Union Street, SE1 and in March 2018 we opened our brand new purpose-built creative campus, The Music Box, which is located in the heart of London’s cultural Southbank. LCCM offers undergraduate courses in Music Performance & Production, Music Business Management, Creative Music Technology and Composition for Films, Games & Other Media. Postgraduate awards are available in Creative Entrepreneurship, Music Performance, Music Production and Entertainment Science.

Higher education should have value for life and we strive to provide our students with a time of creative and cultural experimentation as well as personal development during their studies with us. Our students develop lifelong skills in communication, creative expression, collaboration and cultural understanding as well as furthering their talent, passions and personal ambitions.
