Intergrating entrepreneurial skills and thinking into the curriculum at the Royal College of Music

Nearing the end of the five-year experiment, MTSC is collating the learnings and impact on the partner institutions and venture development from participating in this experiment. In this piece, we look at how MTSC activities are integrating entrepreneurial skills and thinking int other curriculum at the Royal College of Music. Bringing in £344,592 in funding to the institution through the support of three ventures across three cohorts there has been great success. The supported ventures include a digital musical instrument to encourage collaborative music making for children with disabilities, a therapeutic trumpet for those with Cystic Fibrosis, as well as a digital learning platform to enhance the teaching of complex performative skills.
