Every year talented young musicians from over fifty countries come to study here, attracted by renowned teachers and a rich culture that broadens their musical horizons, develops their professional creativity, and fosters their entrepreneurial spirit. Students benefit from an unrivalled calendar of concerts, operas, musical theatre shows and other events, in which they work regularly with leading practitioners. In 2012 and 2015, the Academy and New York’s Juilliard School joined forces in sensational concerts at Lincoln Center, Boston Early Music Festival, Leipzig Bach Festival, BBC Proms and the Academy’s own Duke’s Hall.
All these facets of Academy life contribute to what The Guardian has described as the Academy’s ‘cosmopolitan confidence that is in tune with the global music industry’.
The Academy’s Museum 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, manuscripts by Purcell, Handel and Vaughan Williams and an incomparable and growing collection of performing materials that belonged to eminent musicians.
As the Academy approaches its bicentenary it goes from strength to strength, and regularly tops league tables for teaching and research.
