List of Accredited Conservatory Institutions

Note: The vast majority of the institutions listed below have not been notified of their accredited status, since they are not members of RICM.  Their accredited status is determined by RICM in its sole discretion in consultation with industry professionals not affiliated with these institutions.  Since our funding source is not from the conservatories themselves, RICM maintains integrity of the highest order and assures the public that there are no conflicts of interest in the accreditation process.
