About Us

Welcome to the Rachmaninov Rostov State Conservatory!

The Rostov State Conservatory is a national and international centre of excellence for performing arts education. We are one of the best Conservatories in Russia, offering specialised and intensive teaching in music.

Located in the heart of Rostov-on-Don, the Conservatory is also the region’s busiest performing arts centre with hundreds of concerts taking place each year. We welcome thousands members of the public every academic year, who come to watch our talented and passionate students perform on stage.

Currently around 20% of our students come from outside Russia. Between them they represent a lot of different nationalities and add a rich multicultural diversity to the Rostov State Conservatory.

We value hard-working, talented and curious students, and, in exchange, we provide an inspiring and supportive environment in which to excel.

The Rachmaninov Rostov State Conservatory is cooperating with the leading Academies of Music and Conservatories in Russia, Belorussia, Moldova, Ukraine, Armenia, Turkey, Romania, South Korea, China, and Great Britain.

We have long and strong relationship with the Royal Conservatory of Scotland (Glasgow, Great Britain). Our successful and fruitful cooperation with the Royal Conservatoire is marked with two mutual projects of the academic mobility in the frame of the programme ERASMUS funded by the European Union.


Erasmus+ mobility programme

Erasmus+ — Programme combines seven EU education, training and youth programs, including the university exchange programme, formally known as the Erasmus Programme.

As part of the Erasmus+ the Rachmaninov Rostov State Conservatory is a partner of the «George Enescu» National University of Arts from Iaşi .

”The «George Enescu» National University of Arts from Iaşi works as a State institution according to the Romanian Constitution, the Education Laws, the By-Laws of the teaching personnel and the Human Rights Declaration.

The University is a higher education institution that has as a mission:

  • to shape the personality of future artists and to contribute to the development of Romanian and universal culture;
  • to train specialists in the domain of art (music, visual arts, drama) for the specialised education system.”

(The Charter of the “George Enescu” National University of Arts from Iaşi)

The academic mobility programme was launched in February 2020 and will last until the end of 2022. While being the third academic mobility programme for the Rostov Conservatory in the frame of the ERASMUS, it includes both Student and Staff Mobility programmes.

The pandemic became a great obstacle for the realization of the mutual project of the two leading musical institutions, and major events were postponed until better times. But we continue supporting our collaboration and hope to fulfill our plans successfully.

The mobility component of the Erasmus+ program enables higher education students to study for part of their degree or to pursue a traineeship in a European or other associated country, encourages teacher and staff mobility and promotes transnational cooperation projects among universities across Europe.

As part of the Erasmus+ Rachmaninov Rostov State Conservatory is a partner of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Mobility for students means the possibility of studying and / or internship abroad at a partner Conservatory for a period of 3 months. Mobility for teachers means teaching abroad at a partner Conservatory, conducting consultations and master classes.

The academic mobility program was launched in February 2017 and lasted until May, 2018. 11 students from the Rostov Conservatory and 5 students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, along with more than 40 teachers from the both institutions took part in it. ERASMUS+ was the second successful and rather fruitful mutual project, which gave the opportunity to students- pianists, accordionists, violinists, musicologies and composers to enrich their experience in musical research and creative work.
