We’re proud to announce that the winner of our exclusive Songwriting scholarship has started her studies at BIMM Institute Hamburg. Mariama Ceesay was awarded this life-changing opportunity by our partners, RockCity Hamburg e.V.

Earlier this year, we announced the launch of our brand new scholarships for students who show incredible talent and creativity in music. Not only are these scholarships designed to cover the chosen student’s three-year undergraduate course, but they are also awarded by none other than Hamburg’s unique and supporting music network, Rockcity Hamburg e.V.


“It’s a unique opportunity, which I am very grateful for”

– Mariama Ceesay


Rockcity Hamburg e.V. – which supports the Hamburg music scene and a community of 5,000 bands and musicians with career advice, networking, coaching and more – offered this full-time scholarship to Mariama Ceesay. She chose to study our BA (Hons) Songwriting undergraduate course.

The Hamburg-based talent Mariama is the perfect fit for the scholarship, with her talent and experience meeting business and education”, says RockCity Hamburg e.V. In fact, it was Mariama’s initial experience that saw her impress the selection committee. Mariama built up her experience of the music industry and practical studio time while she was still in high school and effortlessly stepped from stage to business.


“The scholarship comes exactly on point for this new talent…Entering BIMM Institute Hamburg seems to be the perfect next step for her career. We’re pleased to have her and are looking forward to the next three years!”

– RockCity Hamburg e.V.


Mariama is already loving her time at BIMM Institute, “BIMM Institute has established a wonderful network of like-minded people, who have all decided to start their journey into the music business – and I’m now very pleased to have the chance to be a part of it”. Mariama is also really excited about being able to witness the creation of our first wave of graduates here in Hamburg. “I see this as a privilege to be able to call myself one of the first students of BIMM Institute Hamburg.”
