KE projects

Our KE arises from impactful research discoveries, cutting-edge music innovations, collaborative projects with under-represented communities, student entrepreneurship and skills development programmes. 

Our aim is to maximise the real world benefits that music can bring to our society and economy through meaningful, sustainable knowledge exchange activities. We are strengthening our relationships with organisations ranging from the United Nations, local charities and government and the creative industries.

Here you can see how Royal College of Music knowledge exchange projects make an impact by solving real-world problems through the power of music.

If you would like further information about how we can help your organisation or community, or any aspect of RCM knowledge exchange, please feel free to contact us at
