The Royal College of Music (RCM) is one of the world’s great conservatoires, training gifted musicians from all over the world for international careers as performers, conductors and composers.

Founded in 1882 by the then Prince of Wales (later Edward VII), the RCM has trained some of the most important figures in British and international music life, including composers such as Holst, Vaughan Williams, Turnage and Britten; conductors such as Leopold Stokowski, Sir Colin Davis and Sir Roger Norrington; singers such as Dame Joan Sutherland, Sir Thomas Allen and Alfie Boe; and instrumentalists such as Sir James Galway, John Lill, Gervase de Peyer, and Natalie Clein.

With 840 students from more than 60 countries studying at undergraduate, Masters and doctoral level, the RCM is a vibrant community of gifted and open-minded musicians. RCM professors are musicians with worldwide reputations, accustomed to working with the most talented students of each generation to unlock their artistic potential.

Without the generosity of individuals, companies, charitable trusts and foundations, and legators, the future of the RCM would not be secure. To ensure that the RCM can continue to provide its students with the highest levels of training and performance opportunities and remain one of the leading conservatoires in the world, we rely on your generosity.

Your support will help further our vision of excellence in music education, performance and research, both at home and around the globe.
