ITEMM stands for European technological institution for the music professions.
We are one of Europe’s leading schools for education in all technical aspects of musical instruments : making, repair, restoration and tuning of guitars, wind instruments (brass and wood), pianos and accordions. In addition, we offer training programs in sound engineering and musical instrument business in retail and in management.
We have established working partnerships with the musical instrument-making industry in France and abroad.
Itemm is a non-profit organisation set up by professionals of the musical instrument making industry. It was created following 1988 European Parliament resolution outlining that “it was important for Europe to have an innovative school which would reassert the value of music professions […] and would help to communicate the knowledge needed to establish training courses for these professions“.
Itemm is funded by AGEFA PME, the French state, the Pays de la Loire region and the city of Le Mans.
