Institute of Contemporary Music Performance Partners with Ampeg

The Institute
of Contemporary Music Performance,
widely known as Europe’s finest school of
modern music, and Ampeg, one of the most revered names in bass amplification,
are delighted to announce a brand new partnership.

The Institute, originally known to
bassists the world over as the Basstech, has long been the only serious
destination for bassists looking to develop their playing and performing skills
to the highest levels. With a faculty composed of some of the world’s finest
and most experienced tutors and located in state of the art facilities in
London, UK, the Institute practically invented the concept of organized and
formal training for the contemporary musician. Hundreds of students now study
every year across a broad portfolio of professional courses, and Institute
graduates can be found working throughout the music industry.

Ampeg, whose legendary amps are the
stuff of dreams for all rock bassists, have for more than 50 years been at the
forefront of developing amplification equipment that has been the choice of
some of the most famous names of the last 50 years. Names like the Stones,
Kiss, Beastie Boys, Billy Sheehan, Michael Anthony, Kiss, AC/DC, New York
Dolls, Tony Levin and many more awesome bands and players have chosen Ampeg as
their amp of choice.

Pete Whittard, Managing Director at
the Institute, said:

‘This is a great honour for us, since this is the first education-related
partnership for Ampeg in the UK,
and great news for all of our students. Having spent the last three years
investing hundreds of thousands of pounds in the development of world class
premises and the latest industry-standard equipment here at the Institute, our
students can now count on some of the best-equipped facilities in the country.
However, with the addition of Ampeg to our stable of world class partners,
students will now have access to equipment made by one of the top names in bass
amplification. Everybody knows that the Ampeg story is pretty much the story of
the last 50 years of rock and roll!’

In addition to Ampeg, their sister
company Crate will also be joining the roster of Institute partners with their
great range of quality bass and guitar combos and practice amps. So if you are serious
about playing and studying the bass and looking to develop a career in the
