Patrons Programme

The Royal Academy of Music has become my second home. I know of no other institute of learning which is so welcoming to members of the general public. It is wonderful to see how students are nurtured and one can feel the very vibrant atmosphere within its four walls. I am happy to support the work of the Academy.
