From small rural church to thriving cathedral, whatever your age and ability, RSCM supports choral singers through training schemes, awards, choirs and courses.
It includes a range of training materials, repertoire, courses and training choirs that will enable you to encourage and develop a singing culture in your church, school or the wider community.
The RSCM provides a system of awards assessed by formal examination: the Bronze (or Dean’s), Silver (or Bishop’s) and Gold awards.

Saturday Schools are the RSCM’s new initiative to take high quality training to small town and rural centres across the UK. Parallel sessions for choirs and choir trainers and instrumentalists and worship leaders run through the day, offering workshops led by skilled trainers, before coming together at the end of the day for an act of worship.

Enthusiastic and competent singers are invited to audition for the RSCM Residentiary Choir, formed to sing cathedral services each summer. This choir provides an opportunity for adults of any age to participate in cathedral-style repertoire under expert direction and with the guidance of a vocal coach.
