General Information

The Royal Academy of Music has been training musicians to the highest professional standards since its foundation in 1822. Its impact on musical life, both in the UK and abroad, is inestimable. The music profession is permeated at all levels with Academy alumni, including classical giants Sir Simon Rattle and Sir Harrison Birtwistle and pop stars Sir Elton John and Annie Lennox.
Every year some of the most talented young musicians from more than 50 countries come to study here, attracted by renowned teachers and a rich culture that broadens musical horizons, develops professional creativity and fosters entrepreneurial spirit. Students benefit from an ambitious calendar of concerts, operas, musical theatre shows and other events, in the run-up to which they work regularly with leading practitioners.

Fast facts

Ever since its inception, the Academy has been committed to transporting its musical activities from its central London home to national and international audiences. Today, students perform at leading venues and collaborate with distinguished partners in high-profile projects. In 2015 the Academy and New York’s Juilliard School joined forces in sensational concerts in Leipzig, Boston, New York and London, and in 2018 an orchestra comprising students from both the Academy and Tokyo University of the Arts performed in London, Oxford, Koriyama and Tokyo. The Academy’s recordings with Linn Records have received critical acclaim.

The Academy Museum is home to one of the world’s most significant playing collections, including instruments by Stradivari, the Amati family, Broadwood and Érard, and an impressive collection of art and photography. As well as being an integral part of Academy life, the museum can be accessed free of charge by members of the public, schools and educational groups.
