Masters in Music Performance in Scotland in United Kingdom. Master of Music (MMus) Are you aiming to make music your life’s work? Are you aspiring 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, more likely, 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 applying to the Royal Conservatoire’s MMus, you will be here to refine and extend your musicianship in preparation for your next steps. With this range of individual aspiration in mind, we have designed the Masters framework to offer you a great deal of choice and flexibility around your core principal study, however that is defined. The level of choice and flexibility also reflects the reality that you will probably pursue a portfolio career, either by necessity or through choice.Whatever your individual rationale for study, the Royal Conservatoire’s Masters framework takes as its starting point the notion that you already have a broad base of skills, knowledge and understanding, and a realistic and well-focused sense of what you need to build on that base to reach higher levels of accomplishment and understanding. Taught postgraduate programmes are aimed at graduates from Conservatoires and universities or individuals who have attained an equivalent standard through experience. The programmes lead to a postgraduate Certificate (PGCert), Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip), Master of Music (MMus) or Master of Opera (MOpera). You can progress through a choice of options determined by your individual needs, ability and aspirations. You will experience rehearsals and performance in a wide range of contexts. Our flexible programmes include studies in: Performance (includes all string, woodwind and brass instruments, guitar, timpani and percussion, piano solo, piano ensemble, piano repetiteur, harpsichord and concert singing) Scottish Music Opera Studies Composition Conducting Advanced Accompaniment Repetiteur Pianist for Dance Research Preparation (for students planning doctoral level studies). We have designed the framework to encourage a meaningful interaction between your artistic and your broader intellectual development; to give you space to develop and take ownership of a specialism without reducing the versatility that you will need to succeed as a professional musician. Most importantly, we have designed it so that you can and must 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). We have set ourselves high aims for Masters study at the Royal Conservatoire – nothing short of changing your relationship with the work you do as a musician. This is what distinguishes study at Masters level from the undergraduate experience. You begin your postgraduate studies with the core of your musical personality – the skills, understandings and attitudes that define you as a musician – already established; we want your postgraduate studies to nurture that existing artistic personality so that you can really make a difference in the fields in which you choose to work. We will also encourage you to be curious and resourceful, because however great your musicianship, you will only sustain a satisfying career if you can constantly renew yourself artistically and professionally, and draw nourishment from the diverse professional and intellectual challenges and opportunities that a life in music will pose.
