Summary

Introduction

Welcome to the MA (Traditional Music). 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).

Our staff are professional performers, composers, and scholars of Scottish traditional music with active careers. They understand the challenges that you’ll face in your own career and can provide help and advice as you progress. As well as working with our elite core staff, you’ll get the opportunity to learn from visiting artists and academics from all over the world.

There’s a great atmosphere in the department and the Conservatoire as a whole; it’s a close-knit community where you end up performing and gigging with other students and staff, and making friends for life.

The MA degree is designed for students who wish to achieve a Masters level qualification in one year, with 180 SCQF credits at level 11 (90 ECTS credits). The programme runs full-time for four terms, 43 weeks in total, with the fourth term being dedicated to a largely independent project. 31 weeks of 90 minutes principal study lessons are offered, to a total of 46.5 hours. (Nine extra hours may be allocated to additional study of a related instrument, where appropriate). Students can also exit with PGDip awards.
