The Institute

The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, in partnership with their industry sponsors, held a series of scholarship live finals last week in which places worth over £30,000 were awarded for the Institute’s renowned Higher Diploma course.

For the Drum Scholarship, sponsored by Mapex, Paiste and Drummer magazine, each finalist had an interview with a panel of judges followed by a five minute live performance with their fellow finalists and guests in the audience. The Institute is now delighted to announce that the award of the 2012 Drum Scholarship has been made to Jake Woodward.

Jake impressed the judges with technical ability and overall confidence on the kit. He commented on his experience: ‘"It was a great feeling to win a scholarship to one of the best music schools in the world. It was a brilliant day and I look forward to studying at the Institute."

Jake will now receive a full scholarship onto the Institute’s Higher Diploma drum course starting in September, worth £5,450, with runner-up Ed Owen receiving a partial scholarship worth £2,500.
