RCM Sparks is the Royal College of Music’s groundbreaking learning and participation programme. It provides opportunities for everyone to make or learn about music at the RCM, regardless of musical ability.
Complementing the RCM mission to provide professional training at the highest international level, RCM Sparks involves specially tailored and comprehensive training for students, preparing them for diverse roles they will undertake as professionals.
Trib-Borough Music Hub
As part of the Tri-Borough Music Education Hub, RCM Sparks is an official partner of the Royal Albert Hall and the Aurora Orchestra. Together, the three organisations provide music services to children in three London boroughs – Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster – and aim to ensure that every child aged 5–18 years has the opportunity to sing and learn a musical instrument, to develop their skills and to play with other children as part of an ensemble or choir. These key projects offer a number of opportunities for RCM students to develop their professional skills.
