One great teacher changes many lives

A student’s professor can be the most significant musical influence in their life.

We need your support to help attract and develop the best teachers from around the world. Your gift could:

  • endow a distinguished chair for a renowned teacher
  • establish a professorship for a leading artist
  • provide early-career fellowships for rising stars

Our line-up of regular teachers and visitors includes Professor Joanna MacGregor CBE, Sir Mark Elder CH CBE, Jack Liebeck, Helen Grime MBE, Claude-Michel Schönberg and Lucy Crowe. With your help, we can add more names to that list.
