Course summary

Introduction

You begin your postgraduate studies with the core of your musical personality the skills, understandings and attitudes that define you as a traditional musician or piper already established; your postgraduate studies should nurture that existing artistic personality so that you can really make a difference in the fields in which you choose to work. The programme offers advanced training to talented traditional musicians from a diverse range of undergraduate degrees or their equivalent, allowing you to refine and extend your musicianship in the context of your own aspirations. Most importantly, we have designed it so that you take ownership of the learning process throughout the degree and beyond it, whether in the professional world or in higher studies (such as a PhD).

The MMus degree is intended for students who are seeking an extended and thorough professional grounding at master’s level in their chosen area of specialism. This is a two-year, full-time programme, leading to 240 SCQF credits at level 11 (120 ECTS credits). Most of the teaching and learning takes place in terms one, two and three of both years, to a total of 81 hours across the two years. (Nine extra hours may be allocated to additional study of a related instrument, where appropriate).

Graduate Destination

The Royal Conservatoire’s MMus graduates work professionally in orchestras, ensembles and opera houses in the UK and abroad. Many build portfolios careers, combining part-time and freelance performance with teaching, community engagement, and work in allied areas such as music administration.
