Plus: Tama/Zildjian link-up revealed
The London College of Creative Media (LCCM) has announced a scholarship competition.
A series of live events will give players the opportunity to perform for the chance of receiving one of 20 scholarships. The scholarships, of which 10 are full and 10 are partial, will have a collective total value of £300,000 in fees in respect of music degrees at LCCM over the next three years.
Darius Khwaja, Principal of LCCM, said: “We are looking forward to finding the most talented musicians and welcoming them to our college. This is a fantastic opportunity for all prospective students to take part in this great competition, and have a chance to win a scholarship towards their music degree.
“We believe it will be a great experience for all participants and their personal musical development. At LCCM, we will develop your passion for music and help you take your career to the next level.”

It’s a busy old time for the LCCM, as the organisation has also recently revealed a partnership with Tama and Zildjian. According to the LCCM, the partnership means that its students will be able to perform and practise on the same kit used by professional musicians. The link-up will also enable LCCM to hold regular master classes and clinics with TAMA or Zildjian artists.
The equipment includes seven Starclassic Maple kits, a Star Walnut kit, five SLP snares, three Starphonic snares as well as K Custom, A Custom and Avedis A series cymbals.
Ian Aguado-Bush, product manager at TAMA and Zildjian said of the partnership: “We recognise LCCM as one of the leading and progressive music institutions in London. Tama and Zildjian has always been focused on education, which is why we are very proud to be partnered with LCCM, where students can play and experience our very top level of drum kit. We believe that the college will benefit from advanced learning with the new equipment provided.”
