Published: 12th May, 2020

As we continue to navigate these unprecedented times, we at the Royal Irish Academy of Music are as committed as ever to the providing high-quality tuition to dedicated musicians in whatever way we can. This year, the RIAM Summer Programme offering is moving online, so that students from across the country and abroad can benefit from the expertise of our talented and accomplished faculty members.

Young composers (and would-be composers) age 13-18 are invited to take part in the RIAM Young Composers' Summer Project, working remotely with Composer and RIAM Faculty member Jonathan Nangle, as they explore the vast possibilities of using technology to create their own compositions.

Singers age 13-18 can take part in the RIAM Virtual Youth Choir Project, honing their choral singing and musicianship skills, and learning about healthy vocal technique as they receive online coaching from Dublin Youth Choir Founder, Lynsey Callaghan, and work on a collaborative social-distance singing project.

Instrumental players age 13-18 can take part in the RIAM Virtual Chamber Music Summer Project, working on socially distanced chamber music projects with their fellow musicians in triosquartets, and quintets, under the guidance of RIAM faculty and Irish Chamber Orchestra member, Robin Panter.

Pianists age 13-18 can take part in the RIAM Young Pianists' Virtual Summer Intensive, training remotely with RIAM Keyboard Faculty members Professor Thérèse Fahy and Professory Anthony Byrne, to bring their performance to the next level and develop the skills every musician needs in their toolbox.

We have also joined forces with Bands of Ireland to launch an Adults Virtual Band Summer Course, which will give adult instrumentalists the opportunity to engage remotely with some of Ireland's finest performers and educators over a two-week online course, and to be a part of a unique community of their fellow musicians with both musical and social activities.
