The RMA organises and supports a number of conferences and study days throughout the year. These include the RMA Annual Conference and annual Research Students’ Conference, regular study days organised by postgraduate students, and annual events organised by the RMA Study Groups.

RMA Research Students’ Conference

The RMA Research Students’ Conference takes place in early January every year. It offers students a great introduction to academic conferences, whether through giving a paper or simply attending.

RMA Study Days

The RMA holds regular study days on a wide range of topics in the study of music.

RMA Study Groups

Three of the RMA’s Study Days were so popular that they developed into long-term study groups, which now organise events throughout the year: the RMA Music and Philosophy Study Group, the RMA Music and/as Process Study Group, and the RMA Music and Visual Arts Study Group.
