David Wood is a ‘RNCM Member’ and donor to the Royal Northern College of Music ‘Support a Student’ scheme.
The RNCM is very much in David’s heart. His son (the bassist Harrison Wood) was both an undergaduate and junior there; his daughter (the percussionist Jess Wood) was a junior there; and his partner (the cello teacher Rachel Lucy Moore) did her postgrad there and has gone on to teach at their RNCM junior department for nearly thirty years.
The Royal Northern College of Music’s ‘Support a Student’ scheme offers awards, bursaries and emergency funding to ensure that no young musician is unable to take a place at the college, or to continue their training due to hardship.
Founded in 1973 – through the merger of the Royal Manchester College of Music and the Northern School of Music – the Royal Northern College of Music (aka RNCM) is continually recognised as one of the world’s most forward-thinking conservatoires. It is home to circa 900 students from more than 60 countries; and dedicated to providing an outstanding education that propels students into careers as inspiring and versatile musicians, fully-equipped for exciting futures both on and off stage.
