The Royal College of Music, based in London, is the first major conservatoire to adopt nkoda’s newly devised simultaneous user model, designed to provide access to every RCM student at an affordable cost.

The licence is for the maximum number of accounts currently available to institutions, and comes at a time when musicians are turning to online resources following restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Of the agreement between nkoda and the Royal College of Music, Peter Linnit, RCM Librarian says: “I am delighted that the Royal College of Music has become the first institution in the world to partner with nkoda. Having access to nkoda’s comprehensive library will have a significant impact on student learning, greatly increasing the range of music they can experience and opening up new ways of working. This is particularly important whilst lockdown measures remain in place and students are looking to online resources to support the continuation of their studies.”

Lorenzo Brewer, Founder & CEO of nkoda, says, “We’re really proud to be partnering with the RCM, one of the best institutions for music education in the world. This partnership marks what we think is a major shift in the importance of digital resources for learning - brought into stark relief by what we are all living through right now. We can’t wait to see the amazing things that the students, professors, and staff at RCM will do with nkoda.”

The agreement marks the culmination of several months’ work, and nkoda is humbled by the confidence RCM has shown in the service. We hope this is the beginning of a long and rewarding partnership between nkoda and a cornerstone of musical education.
