Open Day 2021


The Royal Irish Academy of Music is home to many of Ireland’s finest musicians, industry leaders, and teachers. RIAM is also home to hundreds of ambitious students on a clear pathway to becoming professional performers, composers, conductors, educators, and administrators.

The RIAM Open Day for students interested in starting their studies from September 2022 or 2023 took place on Friday 8 October 2021, 4:00 p.m. We have included recordings of the day below.

Future RIAM students got to meet our teaching staff, hear from alumni who have gone on to enjoy successful careers, and interact with our amazing current students in this informative and enjoyable session.

We are a national conservatoire that takes great pride in knowing our students individually and nurturing them in the kind of music career that they wish to achieve.
