Bimm (British and Irish Modern Music Institute) Birmingham has appointed Antony Greaves as its principal.
Greaves pioneered the UK’s first electronic music production degree and has an extensive background in music and education, having worked in the industry since 1999.
Last year he became a development consultant and author of the world’s first music production graded syllabus, which is now delivered in 42 countries around the world. Formerly technical manager at the Mayfair Recording Studios, he continues to write songs and develop unsigned artists.
He described his new role as ‘the best job in the world for me.’
Dara Kilkenny, executive principal for Bimm Birmingham, Manchester and Dublin, said: ‘Antony is going to be a great asset to the new BIMM Birmingham. His experience in both education and the music industry is a perfect combination, and he will be a great mentor to all our students. I am really delighted to welcome him to the team.’
Bimm Birmingham will be the 7th college in the expanding group of music colleges. The new £4m college is due to open in Digbeth in October 2017.
The next Bimm Birmingham open day will take place at the Custard Factory at 11am on 22 April.
