‘All known cultures have music, and all cultures expect their members to be able to make sense of their music by making music or listening to it. In the CMS we explore musicality as a fundamental human capacity. We investigate the full range of musical behaviour from private listening to interacting with others, whether in expert performance or just having fun. Music is not just sound: it is dynamic pattern in embodied minds, movement, and social interactions; it is shaped by biology and culture. In the CMS we study music from all these perspectives; we aims to identify its relationships with other domains of human life, particularly speech and language.’

‘Originally founded in 2000 at the Royal College of Music, the CPS has become an internationally distinctive centre for research, teaching, and knowledge exchange in music performance science. Now, nearly two decades on, we are opening a new chapter in performance science: a cross-institutional partnership between the Royal College of Music and Imperial College London. Performance is at the very core of progress in the arts, business, education, medicine, science, and sport. Increasingly, new methods and technologies are emerging that allow us to understand better how and why we perform and the reasons we find great performances so compelling.’

‘We are a UK Charity. Our aim is to preserve, promote and celebrate the causes of jazz in the UK and beyond. We also interview musicians and other jazz icons! ... “People have died for jazz" said the legendary trumpeter John Birks 'Dizzy’ Gillespie" - and you still have a problem calling it 'serious music?'" The great British tenorist Alan Skidmore echoed the thought on a recent visit to 'The Jazz Centre (UK)'. "I've given six decades of my life to this art-form" he said " - and I appreciate its full celebration in words and deeds". Our Trustees believe him. And while we have a long way to go we believe that “The Jazz Centre (UK)” can soon remove the brackets from its last two letters.’
