Course summary

Introduction

Designed for students interested in furthering their development in jazz at postgraduate level, this specialist pathway is led by internationally renowned jazz saxophonist and composer (and Head of the Jazz BMus pathway) Professor Tommy Smith OBE and offers bespoke tuition from some of the best jazz musicians and educators in the Scotland.

We offer 90 minutes of one-to-one lessons each week on your principal study instrument ­­(the highest amount of contact time offered anywhere in the UK at time of publication), allowing you to maximise your instrumental skills and potential.

In addition to this we also offer second study modules should you have an interest in developing a second instrument at an additional 30 minutes per week of one-to-one tuition. This does not detract from your 90 minutes of principal study.

The jazz scene in Glasgow and Scotland is thriving and there are many performance opportunities both within the Conservatoire and without - our students have negotiated many external performance opportunities in surrounding venues which means there’s live music happening almost every night of the week. Students can also exit with PGDip awards.
