Improvisation is an integral part of undergraduate study at the RNCM, and something that is embraced across all Schools of Study.

For the first two years of our Bachelor of Music with Honours degree, it is a core compulsory component of the musicianship module, enabling students to develop key skills and explore their interests.

Led by Steve Berry, Head of Jazz and Improvisation, performance opportunities include the MIUAWGA ensemble (Making It Up As We Go Along), RNCM Big Band and RNCM Jazz Collective, as well as student Spotlight Concerts and Lunchtime Recitals.
