  • The Royal Academy of music is the oldest higher musical institution in England. Founded as a private school in London in 1822 on the initiative of a group of patrons. From 1832 formally adopted under the patronage of the King of the Royal Academy of music Museum is located in a separate building near the Accademia, a stone's throw from Regent's Park. This is not only a collection of musical instruments and artifacts, but also scientific research center of the Museum has three permanent galleries. On the ground floor there is a collection of tools known musicians. Second floor is devoted to stringed instruments-here you can see masterpieces by Stradivari, Amati, Guarneri, Ruggeri, as well as drawings, prints, historical documents. Third floor takes Piano Gallery. Its exhibits illustrate the stages of development of the English square piano in the first half of the 19th century, to compare it with the tools of fine Viennese style. All pianos are in excellent condition and are used to demonstrate sound. It's not every day I recommend to visit all musicians and lovers of classical music.

  • I wouldn't change anything about the Academy - All the staff took time to get to know me and help me to the best of their abilities and I came out the other end with a degree I am proud of and friends I will keep forever. The building has a magical yet homely buzz about it and the music-making is of the highest standard I could have imagined. There is such a solid support network and community created by the presence of like-minded and hard-working people. I couldn't recommend this establishment highly enough.
  • The Academy was the perfect place for me to study - to be surrounded by world class musicians every day (both teachers, visitors and fellow students) was incredible. I would recommend the Academy to any aspiring musician who wants to work in a professional and stimulating environment and have great fun whilst doing it! The staff were always friendly and I had so many great musical experiences - even just within my first term. Thanks to the Academy for providing me with the best possible springboard to the music profession and for the best four years of my life so far!
  • There is no way that I would be where I am today without having studied at this establishment. The opportunities provided to me throughout my time studying here were second to none, getting to play under some of the best conductors in the world. All of the staff are incredibly friendly, supportive and helpful and I would recommend studying here to absolutely anybody.
  • The Royal Academy of Music is a wonderful building, with incredibly good facilities for teaching musicians. I studied here, and the teaching is unparalleled, it provided me with a wealth of skills that I use every day in my career, not only musically but socially and professionally as well. The building itself is incredibly historical, with many interesting antiques for the public to browse in the museum, a fantastic large scale performance platform in the spacious Duke's Hall, with a phenomenal newly built organ donated by Elton John. The small chamber music spaces are also acoustically brilliant, specifically in the David Josefowitz Recital Hall, where in summer you can come and watch the final recitals of the musicians who study here. There is a vast range of concerts that they provide (most for free!), as the numerous students have new and exciting programmes that they perform on a daily basis. The lunchtime recitals are a particular favourite, as the variety of works portrayed shows the increased diversity of musical interests that only students can have. I couldn't recommend the establishment any higher than saying that the people I worked with, the staff that taught me, and the building itself are all completely incomparable to other institutions.
  • I and thousands like me owe quite literally my whole career to this fantastic place, the staff, and the students themselves. First rate teaching and an incredible support network.
