Music Technology Course - A Huge Success!
The first IMS two day LOGIC COURSE was hailed as an outstanding success! Justin Welch (ex "Elastica" & now IMS Manager) and James Atkin (lead singer with "EMF") who ran the course said of the pupils' recordings "These would not sound out of place on any MP3 player or Radio Station" By the end of the course the 10 students from South Molton Community College had confidently written, arranged and produced high quality GCSE compositions. If you would like a course at your school or college please contact Justin on 07962 205 426 or e-mail to email@example.com
New Music Academy For Talented Players
Another ex IMS Devon pupil has initiated a new opportunity for Drum Kit players, Percussionists and Harpists with the launching of an Academy for talented pupils - in Austria!

Courses focus on developing high quality musical skills, theory and World Music. Jamie is also an Examiner for Trinity Guildhall in the UK.

The IMS Team
IMS Pupil in London Success
A pupil of Michelle Farley recently performed a very challenging marimba concerto at the Amaryllis Fleming Concert Hall in London to great acclaim. Edward Skull, who comes from Shaldon, was selected from hundreds of pupils for a prestigious place at the Royal College of Music and is clearly making the most of his talent and is heading for a very successful career in the music business!
Trinity College has completely rebranded their Rock & Pop examinations for Vocals, Drums, Guitar, Keyboards and Bass. From 2012 a new set of qualifications will be available which put performance at the core of the syllabus. Graded songs will include music by the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, ABBA, Muse, David Bowie and Rihanna. Watch this space: www.trinityrock.com
