Fees and Bursaries for the RCM Junior Department

Fees for the 2016-17 academic year are as stated below (fees for the 2017-18 academic year are in brackets). Please note that it is our intention that students who are successful at audition should not be unreasonably prevented from coming to RCMJD through financial hardship. Those needing support may apply for a bursary from RCMJD.

Fees

Fees are set for each academic year and are subject to increase as required. Unless otherwise explicitly agreed/arranged with the Head of Junior Programmes in advance, students are expected to take part in all elements of the core curriculum. There are a total of 30 teaching weeks within each academic year.

Core Curriculum: £1,280 per term (£1,330 per term)

  • First study (45 minutes per week)
  • Musicianship studies (1 hour per week)
  • Choral training (1 hour per week)
  • Orchestra (between 1 and 2 hours per week)
  • Ensemble (1 hour per week)

Additional Individual Study Supplement: £324 per term (£334 per term)

  • Additional individual study lesson (30 minutes per week)

Individual Study Extension: £162 per term (£167 per term)

  • Extra 15 minutes per week individual tuition (where agreed by teacher and parent and at the discretion of the Head of Junior Programmes)

Mini-bass Course: £512 per term (£531 per term)

  • Individual mini-bass lesson (30 minutes per week)
  • Mini-bass group (1 hour per week)
  • Choral training (1 hour per week)
  • Orchestra (up to 1 hour and 15 mins) for more advanced students where agreed by teacher and parent and at the discretion of the Head of Junior Programmes.

At the start of the mini-bass course fully-insured instruments up to quarter-size are provided free of charge by the RCMJD. As a student progresses there is a possibility that they may outgrow the instruments in our collection and require one of a size and/or level that we cannot provide. We regret that we cannot cover the hire cost of mini-basses in these circumstances.
