Why this programme

-We offer the unique opportunity to study alongside world-class performer-scholars, and to work both within the University and the Conservatoire environment.
-The UK’s first UNESCO city of music, Glasgow is home to the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Opera and National Theatre of Scotland.
-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.
-As an accomplished performer, this programme will enhance your performance skills and knowledge with detailed, rigorous study of historical performance practice (particularly of music of the 17th and 18th centuries).
-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.

Programme structure

Two routes are available: one weighted toward performance, the other toward musicological enquiry.

Core courses include
-Two series of seminars in historically informed performance practice
-Practical presentation

Are you a professional musician with a goal? Do you have a specific vision of your future? Then the Master of Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire could be the suitable study to achieve your personal goals. The Prince Claus Conservatoire is internationally known as an innovative institute of high quality with a large regional and international network. The Master of Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire is there for ambitious musicians who want to develop themselves in a self-chosen direction.

There are five study routes within the Master:

High Musical Artisanal Level: Unique

The Master of Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire is innovative compared to other Masters of Music. The educational profile is unique because of the integration of musical mastery, innovative strength (practice based research) and entrepreneurship. In the final exam students show that they are capable of combining musical mastery, research and entrepreneurship in relation to a specific (social) context and thus find their way in the professional field.

High musical artisanal level

A high musical artisanal level is expected from you. The focus is on refining your playing and on developing your ability to improve your skills. This is why your main subject is most important, which is the instrument that you play. Experimenting is important, as is the relation of your music with specific contexts (your audience, a specific event, a special target group). This all corresponds with the goals in your personal study plan.

Personal study plan

You carry out practice based research in order to become a better musician. The research is directly related to your personal study plan. Your research will be linked to individual, methodological coaching which also focusses on the content. Your research finally leads to a presentation which is directly related to your musical practice. An entrepreneurial attitude is essential to be able to successfully translate your musical passion to social contexts. Your vision on your personal future is the main focus.

Four reasons why the Master of Music at the Prince Claus Conservatoire is unique:
1. You choose your own study subject and development: you determine what you want to learn and how you want to learn it. This is your study plan.
2. You determine largely who will be your teachers. You can optimally make use of our teachers' expertise. We also make sure that we get the expertise somewhere else if we cannot offer it within the school.
3. You have the possibility to study abroad for a period of time. For example within the study route New York Jazz: the third semester takes place in New York.
4. This Master is unique in its concept and curriculum compared to other Masters of Music in the Netherlands.

You will understand the rhythm of a working film set and develop the confidence to use your own voice on future projects, confident in the knowledge that you know how to work creatively with actors. You will be given in depth preparation for the profession including interview technics and wide range of lectures from visiting professionals, such as agents, casting directors, working producers and directors.

You will be challenged to experiment, take risks and continuously create: developing your individual artistic voice.

For MA students, the year culminates in an independent project, allowing you to build on the ideas encountered in the programme and undertake self-directed research, experimentation and reflection.

The MFA Extended Project is a self-directed module during which you consolidate your independent choreographic perspectives and practice. You will create and present a substantial body of work that evidences your capacity to research and realise your ideas as a coherent choreographic project.

The Secondary PGCE ‘Musicians in Education’ is a collaboration between Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and the University of Greenwich. It combines our expertise as one of the country’s leading conservatoires with a long tradition of teacher education at the University of Greenwich. The aim of the programme is simple: to prepare flexible and creative musicians who are confident working across a range of educational contexts. In addition to working in and qualifying for the formal school context, you will develop the skills to lead young people in making music in other settings too.

Programme Content

Training is provided through collaboration between Trinity Laban (16 days) and the University of Greenwich (44 days), and is underpinned by significant placement learning opportunities within the schools sector (120 days, of which 10 are placements in alternative contexts with Trinity Laban's partners). These elements will enable you to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills required to teach in secondary schools, and you will be formally assessed against the national statutory requirements for Qualified Teacher Status.

In addition to practical teaching experience gained in two main schools, the partnership between Trinity Laban and the University enables you to gain training and teaching experience outside of classroom settings, for example in instrumental/vocal teaching for a Music Hub, school Musical Futures or community rock/pop projects, or leading orchestral outreach projects. As part of a collaborative team you will also design, coordinate and lead a two-day immersive creative composition project in a school.

In support of this work, you will be able to undertake instrumental/vocal lessons with Trinity Laban's outstanding teachers and will also be mentored by subject specialist teachers from whom you will receive daily feedback and guidance.

Progression Routes

By gaining Qualified Teacher Status you become a qualified teacher for both the maintained and independent sectors. The majority of our graduates become secondary music teachers. However, there are other opportunities, such as working for local authority music services in instrumental teaching or curriculum support. Some students use the skills they have developed to pursue a career as freelance workshop musicians.

PERFORMANCE AND PRACTICE FACILITIES

- 100-seat Peacock Room
- 100-seat Theatre Studio, with sprung dance floor
- Elegant Stuart & Mackerras Rooms for chamber music
- 80+ practice rooms
