What is the RMA?

The Royal Musical Association is the foremost society in the UK dedicated to the study of music. You can find out more about our work on the activities page. The RMA Council has adopted a formal statement setting out our mission.

Equality and Diversity

The Royal Musical Association promotes diversity and equality in respect of race, gender, and any other characteristic by which people identify themselves or are identified by others. The encouragement of such diversity is an explicit goal in the development of membership, the selection of candidates for elected or remunerated office, the consideration of candidates for awards, the consideration of submissions for presentation at RMA conferences or for publication, and in every other aspect of the Association’s activities.

Our Music Higher Education Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Working Group is working on a number of events and other initiatives.
