We have designed the Composition programme of the Royal Irish Academy of Music to bring students to the highest level in music composition. It is supported by academic studies and complemented by performance studies. This ensures that the developing composer is equipped with the necessary skills and attributes to make a successful career.
This degree is unique in the Irish musical landscape fostering integration and collaboration with your performance peers. We admit a maximum of four students per year. This guarantees the necessary individual attention required for each student to be nurtured, find their individual voice and blossom. Furthermore the small student cohort ensures meaningful performance opportunities for works composed.
