Since its foundation in 1822 the Royal Academy of Music has had a huge impact on cultural life, both at home and abroad.
The music profession is permeated at all levels with Academy alumni, including classical giants Sir Simon Rattle and Sir Harrison Birtwistle, as well as pop superstars Sir Elton John and Annie Lennox.
Each year, talented youngsters from more than 50 countries come here to study, no doubt attracted by the Academy’s internationally renowned teachers and the opportunity to broaden their musical horizons, develop their professional creativity and foster their entrepreneurial spirit.
Students benefit from an unrivalled calendar of concerts, operas and theatrical events, in which they are able to work closely with leading practitioners such as Sir Mark Elder and Sir Thomas Allen. Audiences benefit, too, as they are able to hear the next generation of musical elite perform at local London venues, such as Wigmore Hall and the Academy’s own Duke’s Hall.
The Royal Academy of Music also maintains a museum, which is home to one of the world’s most significant collections of instruments and artefacts. These include stringed instruments by Stradivari, Guarneri and the Amati family, along with manuscripts by Purcell, Handel and Vaughan Williams.
