'The Royal College of Music Junior Department is an environment of great enthusiasm, opportunity and enjoyment.'
RCM Junior Department
Our students come together from all over the UK to enjoy a tailor-made programme of outstanding individual lessons, chamber music, musicianship, orchestral and choral training.
Every Saturday during term time, the RCM buzzes with the excitement of talented young musicians aged 8–18 making music at a high level in every corner of the building.

The RCM Junior Department (RCMJD) is a fantastic opportunity for musicians aged 8–18 year to flourish in a supportive community of similarly talented students and the very best teachers.
If you want to make the most of your musical ability, we are here to help you. We are committed to nurturing potential and offer a warm, creative yet disciplined environment in which you will flourish. Enthusiasm, energy, focus and dedication are at the heart of everything our staff and students do.
