A new vision for RIAM 175

The RIAM’s mission is to be the benchmark for excellence in classical music education in Ireland.

We believe that music vitally enriches society. Nurturing this passion for music is our driving ambition. We do this by offering inclusive and innovative learning and assessment experiences to both non-professional and professional musicians.

In 2023 the RIAM will be 175 years old. We are using this milestone year to roll out a new vision which is based on the traditions and values that have brought us success.

Key pillars of our vision include:

Here are just some of the ways in which you can offer us vital support:

  • Create a scholarship for a child to have access to a musical education – a child who might otherwise not be able to study with us due to financial constraints
  • Invest in our Young Scholars Programme for extremely gifted and motivated junior students
  • Support our programme of international visiting artist masterclasses

Whatever choice you make, your support will have a transformational effect on the lives of our young and gifted students. To find out more about our Benefactors, please click here.
