Upbeat - the magazine for the Royal College of Music

Since 1904, the Royal College of Music has published a regular magazine celebrating the achievements of its students, graduates and staff. Under its current title Upbeat, the magazine is not only bigger and brighter than ever before, but distributed worldwide and read by key figures across the music industry.

The latest issue of Upbeat can be viewed above, or pdfs of previous issues can be downloaded below.

Upbeat is published seasonally, coinciding with our autumn, spring and summer terms. Any students, graduates and staff of the RCM can submit details of their latest news to the Upbeat newsdesk: simply send your stories - and any good photos - to news@rcm.ac.uk. If you're a graduate, please also let us know when you studied here and what your principal study was.

Please note, we cannot guarantee to include everything we receive and that we reserve the right to edit any submissions.

The final deadline for the next (autumn) issue is Monday 29 April 2013. We look forward to hearing from you!
