Always great to keep up with how well the accordion students at the Royal Academy of Music are doing and watching them develop in to fine young artists. It is now 30 years this coming September that the accordion was introduced there.The Academy was the first British conservatoire to introduce teaching for classical accordion as a principal study. Owen Murray has been Head of Accordion since the department was founded in 1986. Going along to support these events enable the students to play for a good size audience and I have seen concerts becoming more and more well-attended over the years which shows that there’s plenty of interest in the accordion out there.

Accordion students will play solo and chamber music works by JS Bach, Scarlatti, Trojan and Berio.
