Research Centres at the RNCM

Our research centres give the chance for essential collaboration with artists, conservatoires and universities across the world

The Centre for Practice & Research in Science & Music (PRiSM) has a team from the RNCM and the Universities of Oxford and Liverpool; the Experimental Exploratory Music Research Centre is connected to Decontamination, a concert series of exploratory music performed by students and visiting professionals; the Hub for Artistic Research in Performance (HARP) fosters research links with external organisations. Musicians’ Health is a rapidly developing research field, and the College is part of the Arts and Humanities Research Council funded Musical Impact project. The RNCM has many other music-research specialists, in music psychology, music education and musicology, many supported by UK and EU grants.
