American talent, creativity and vision have long been a driving force at the Academy

This year alone, the Academy will be host to more than 40 students from the US, in addition to American faculty and staff.

With international fees and costs of living rising, we’ve redoubled our commitment to supporting the best students, no matter where they come from.

To do this, we need your help.

As a US taxpayer, you may wish to make a gift to the American Society for the Royal Academy of Music (ASRAM), a 501(c)3 championing the aims of the Academy in the USA.

To do so, you can either:

  • Make a credit card gift
  • Contact Lucie Kennedy, Director of Philanthropy for wire transfer details
  • Send a check, made out to ‘American Society for the Royal Academy of Music’ (see 'contact in the USA' below)
