Chenmei Jiang, Strings

'It has been wonderful to study at the RCM. I have opportunities to learn from world-leading musicians and I also enjoy the friendly learning environment. It’s been great to work with fellow musicians and professors. I feel privileged to be situated in an environment where everyone loves music.' 

'London is a great place to study music. Renowned musicians from all over the world visit the RCM to perform and/or give masterclasses. I always remember attending a masterclass given by the RCM Polonsky Visiting Professor of Violin and renowned violinist Maxim Vengerov. Even as an audience I learnt so much, in terms of technique and performance practice – it was a memorable experience.'

He Wu, Vocal

"What I learned from singing, from the stage, and the time spent together with my operatic colleagues at RCM, are the most precious of my experiences. The experience of playing the role of the Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte is still vivid in my memory.

My vocal professor Amanda Roocroft from RCM inspired me so significantly, and contributed to my musical achievements.

It was an honour for me to return to RCM as a celebrated member of the Vocal Faculty, to perform for Madam Peng Liyuan in 2015. I also have countless other unforgettable moments from when I studied at RCM, so I would like to say, as we say in Chinese, thank you, my ‘mother college’!"
