Course summary

This Masters, taught jointly with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly RSAMD), combines vocal or instrumental study with performance-related academic research and an element of apprenticeship with professional ensembles. If you’re aspiring to perform professionally or wishing to undertake historical research relating to performance practice, or both: this programme is designed for you.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

You will benefit from access to our facilities including seminar and practice rooms, the University library, two audio labs and an electroacoustic music studio, the University’s Concert Hall and attached studios. You will also have access to facilities at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

We offer the unique opportunity to study alongside world-class performer-scholars, and to work both within the University and the Conservatoire environment. Where possible, RCS can arrange involvement in the work of professional historically-informed ensembles, including Dunedin Consort and Concerto Caledonia.
Glasgow is the UK’s first UNESCO city of music, and home to the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Opera and National Theatre of Scotland.
