Rhythm - - BEAT! -

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.”

To find out how you can get in­volved, head over to and reg­is­ter your de­tails.

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.”
