Support our students

These are unprecedented times for the RCM and its students. Many of our young musicians rely on gigs, teaching, performances and other work to cover their living costs and student fees. As a result of Covid-19, most of this work has been cancelled. We are asking our community to support our Covid-19 Hardship Fund to support those RCM students facing significant financial hardship as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Any donation that you are able to give will support RCM students in urgent need of financial assistance at this time. Thank you for your kind support.
