Learn with us

Please note that we now have a new website – www.rscm.org.uk – the below information will not be updated.


The RSCM provides training, resources and advice in many forms for singers, organists, choir trainers, instrumentalists and worship leaders. Central to this are our core programmes:

Voice for Life – a training scheme and resources for singers of all ages
Church Music Skills – theoretical background and practical skills for music leaders

These programmes embrace formal and informal learning through practice, experience and reflection, all related to the local situation. Education and training are undertaken formally through courses and programmes of learning, which can all lead to awards and qualifications. Informal and ongoing education and training are achieved through publications, advice and events offered by the RSCM. All of these seek to offer models of good practice and opportunities for individual and/or group development.

Complementing our core programmes are training choirs and courses in the UK. To find courses, events and resources that would be helpful to you, click on one of the subject areas below, or search our local events in the UK and Ireland here.

We also offer Pipeline Organ Scholarships to teenage pianists wishing to learn to play the organ.
