Pedagogy and Community
We are proud of the instrumental teacher and music leader education we offer at RBC. We strive to ensure that our graduates are equipped to engage, inspire and support music making in children, young people and adults in diverse communities and contexts. As such, our Alumni enjoy fulfilling portfolio careers.
Students are offered numerous opportunities to develop their teaching and workshop leadership skills beyond the lecture room through credit-bearing placements, volunteering schemes, engagement with external organisations, and through our Learning and Participation Department.
We have a variety of tutors who provide specialist teaching and advice within the Pedagogy and Community department at RBC.Our tutors
