Hooray for Hollywood!
The Hollywood Reporter (THR) has named the Royal College of Music as one of the industry’s top 10 music schools.
The RCM was the only institution from outside the U.S. to be included in the THR’s inaugural ranking of the industry’s top 10 music schools, which is based on a survey of academic and entertainment insiders, including composers, arrangers, music supervisors, editors and engineers from The Society of Composers & Lyricists. The other nine institutions on the list are located in Philadelphia, Boston, New York, and Los Angeles.
The RCM Composition for Screen programme is internationally renowned as one of the world’s leading training programmes for film and TV composers. In its article, the THR states that the RCM “has trained greats from inside its South Kensington walls for more than 130 years”, and quotes from an interview with RCM alumnus Christopher Tin (winner of two Grammys and composer of the opening note for Microsoft's Surface tablet).
