Who are we?

Rhythmic Music Conservatory (RMC) offers the most advanced education available in rhythmic contemporary music – a multifaceted concept that embraces widely diverse forms of expression in such genres as rock, pop, jazz, hip hop, heavy metal and electronic music.

Rhythmic contemporary music is a creative and performative art form that builds upon a solid foundation of professional and cultural traditions, and in which the creative approach is central. At RMC, rhythmic contemporary music means openness, curiosity, challenge, diversity and open-mindedness.

In addition to providing music education at the highest level, RMC also operates research and development projects in the Conservatory’s core areas. The Conservatory also helps to promote musical culture in Denmark in general, and acts as a meeting-point for all of the stakeholders in the music industry. RMC provides a framework for a diverse range of public artist meetings, concerts, seminars, conferences and symposia.

RMC is located in Holmen in Copenhagen, amid beautiful waterside surroundings, and in the heart of a vibrant artistic educational community that also includes the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ Schools for Architecture, Design and Conservation, the National Film School of Denmark and the Danish National School of Performing Arts.

The Conservatory’s unique physical setting offers all the facilities one would expect of a modern academy of music of the highest international standard.
