Royal College of Music

Course Introduction

The Royal College of Music's Artist Diploma courses represent the highest level of taught postgraduate study. They are aimed at musicians who want to hone their skills by working intensively on particular areas of their artistic development as a prelude to entering the music profession.

The course provides time for preparation of concerts, recitals and competitions, under the guidance of the RCM’s staff and instrumental faculty specialists. Students of Collaborative Piano develop all aspects of a professional accompanist's skills as a collaborative artist, including duo repertoire, repetiteur work and orchestral continuo.

Places on our Artist Diploma programmes are only offered to students who have already demonstrated a high level of ability at masters level. All our Artist Diplomas focus on one'to'one provision and practical project work, tailored to your particular career aspirations. Final examination for the Artist Diploma in Performance takes the form of a concert, recital engagement or concerto performance.
