Music's Future Is in your hands

For 200 years, we have moved music forward.

With your support, we can help new generations discover, develop and master their craft – for the whole world to enjoy.

We need to invest in state-of-the-art facilities, to attract and retain the best teachers and collaborators and, most of all, we need to find and fund the talent that shouldn’t be overlooked. We believe that musical excellence matters, and that talent should thrive regardless of background.

‘Coming to the Academy felt like a pipe dream for me, especially as my family was homeless for a time. My donor made it a reality. I can’t explain how thankful I am.’

Sonny, MA (Vocal Studies)
