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.


COVID-19 Update: In order to provide the best possible student experience over the coming months and to ensure maximum access for staff and students while social distancing is in place, the RNCM will remain closed to the public until further notice. More information...
