September 1898: Glasgow Academy of Music

An article on page seven of The Dundee Courier and Argus (Dundee Courier, in The British

Newspaper Archive), on Thursday the 22nd of December, 1898, reads:


“Glasgow Academy of Music.—A new Academy of Music is, it is understood, to be inaugurated in

Glasgow during the course of next month. It is to be called the ‘Glasgow Academy of Music,’ and

will be carried on in that building known as Albany Chambers, at the west end of Sauchiehall Street.

The scheme has been conceived and put into practical shape by a number of leading musicians and

professors of music in the city, who are convinced that the establishment of a music school in the west

end of Glasgow, where every branch of musical education may be studied under thoroughly competent

masters, will meet a very evident want.”
