This programme is for people who want to make music their life’s work. Perhaps you aspire to become an opera singer, a concert artist or orchestral musician; to accompany, compose or arrange; to work as a freelance instrumentalist or to be a conductor, music leader or animateur. You may be planning to coach or teach, either as the sole focus of your professional life or as part of a portfolio career. You might have your sights set on doctoral study, on making a contribution to Scotland’s vibrant traditional music culture or may perhaps wish to fulfil one of the vital specialist music roles in related art forms such as ballet. Whatever your rationale for joining the programme, you will be able to refine and extend your musicianship in preparation for your next steps.

We offer two Masters degrees, the one-year MA and the two-year MMus. The MA runs full-time for three trimesters, with the
third trimester being dedicated to a largely independent project. The MMus in Historically Informed Performance Practice in conjunction with the University of Glasgow also runs on this pattern. The MMus occupies four trimesters across two years, with a summer break in trimester three. Part-time pathways are available for the MA and MMus degrees, as is a 120 credit exit award of PGDip.
