About us

LCCM is a specialist higher education college for creative people. We are the only independent college in the UK offering degrees in music, words, along with a postgraduate degree in creative entrepreneurship.

Our Story

The LCCM story first began in 2002, when Darius Khwaja resolved to found a new college for contemporary popular music in the centre of London. The aim was to create a new approach to teaching music that mixed the best of the good universities and conservatoires with an art school environment. The course that emerged embedded production with performance, establishing LCCM as the first music college where all students had to master both performance and production; a development that was increasingly evident in the music industry.
