Royal Academy of Music

The Royal Academy of Music moves music forward by inspiring successive generations of musicians to connect, collaborate and create. It is the meeting point between the traditions of the past and the talent of the future, seeking out and supporting the musicians today whose music will move the world tomorrow.

From pre-school to post-doc, our students come here from more than 50 countries. We challenge them to find their own voice, take risks and push boundaries. Simon Rattle, Felicity Lott, Elton John and Harrison Birtwistle all learnt their craft here. We are excited to discover who’s next.

Every student benefits from a stimulating curriculum and an ambitious range of concerts and events. Legendary artists come here not just to perform, but to become mentors, friends and musical partners.

A world of music comes to us – and we send music back out into the world. As we enter our third century, our aim is to shape the future of music by discovering and supporting talent wherever it exists.
