ABOUT ICOM

The International College of Music (ICOM) was founded in November 1995. From our inception in 1996 through to 1998, the ICOM 3-year Diploma with four specialist majors in performance, arranging, music synthesis and music production & engineering opened the minds of students and parents alike on the width and range of career options available for the contemporary musician. The course offerings introduced opportunities for academics and music industry professionals to connect and network closely in order to pave the path for young musicians to get a job in the music industry. Malaysian music industry giants such as Freddie Fernandez, Michael Veerapen, Mac Chew, Jenny Chin, Helen Yap, Ahmad Izham Omar, Boon Tan, the late Farid Ali, Louis Pragasam and Aubrey Suwito played key roles as clinicians, faculty members, external examiners and consultants to open the doors of the regional music industry to ICOM graduates. Today, the name ICOM opens many doors in the regional music industry, thanks in part to the strong industry network continuously developed through our faculty, students and alumni.
