The RMC Academy – FAQ’s
What is it?
The RMC Academy is the new name for our non-accredited learning service, which will incorporate the current Private Instrument Tuition department.
The Academy offers the same high quality, standardised Riverside approach to teaching, amazing tutors and all the benefits of studying at Riverside that you would expect – but will now offer a wider range of instruments and services, a renewed focus on community learning, plus a host of additional features to compliment your tuition including; specialised workshops, masterclasses and live showcase events.
