The LCCM story first began in 2001, when Geoff Hemsley and Darius Khwaja resolved to found a new college for contemporary popular music in the centre of London. Their aim was to create a new approach to teaching music that mixed the best of the good universities and conservatoires with an art school environment.
By January 2003, LCCM had moved into in its main building at 50-52 Union Street, London SE1 offering a two year full-time HND in Music Performance and Production and a one year NVQ Level 4 In Music Performance.
Work began on the development of the first degree for professional authors entitled “BA (Hons) Creative and Professional Writing” with a focus on how the written word was used across all formats, channels and platforms.
LCCM also sought to expand its focus on the business side of music by adding a BA in Music Industry Management. Completing this diversification, the college developed an MA programme in Creative Entrepreneurship.
The aim is to create a new approach to teaching music that mixed the best of the good universities and conservatoires with an art school environment. The courses that emerged embedded production with performance, establishing LCCM as the first music college where all students had to master both performance and production; a development that was increasingly evident in the music industry.
