About the Academy

The Royal Academy of Music moves music forward by inspiring successive generations of musicians to connect, collaborate and create.

We are 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.

As we enter our third century, our aim is to shape the future of music by discovering and supporting talent wherever it exists.
