The Royal Danish Academy of Music is the oldest music academy in Denmark. It is a dynamic and vibrant artistic educational institution, centred on teaching, which counts among its principal tasks the aim of continuing to develop classical music and enhance its relevance on an ongoing basis, as a central part of contemporary musical and cultural life.The Academy has a broad musical and stylistic span, ranging from period music to classical-romantic, as well as more recent and new contemporary music, including the compositional music of tomorrow. The majority of the Academy's courses are aimed at a performance at the highest level, and many also include pedagogical training with a view to professional music teaching. Besides the pure instrumentalist and vocalist programmes, specialised courses are also available within the fields of music teaching, composition, conducting and church music, as well as recording direction. In recent years, a broad range of co-operation and practical training agreements have intensified links with the labour market and have contributed to good employment statistics for our graduates.The Academy's fundamental artistic activities find expression in a comprehensive and richly varied range of concerts, as well as high-profile projects within educational and artistic developmental work and research. A wide network of international contacts and partners rounds off the picture created by the Academy's many committed teachers and other staff – and above all, by the large body of talented students who form the heart of it all.Since the summer of 2008, the Royal Danish Academy of Music has been housed in outstanding architectural surroundings at Rosenørns Allé 22. During the previous year, the beautiful and atmospheric buildings designed by the architect Vilhelm Lauritzen underwent a thoroughgoing renovation and conversion which transformed them from a radio centre into a modern academy of music. The result is a complex of top international quality, with plenty of room for teaching and rehearsal, as well as offering unique concert and production possibilities. Read Less
