Professional Graduate Diploma in Musical Direction Graduate Diploma




What will I learn?

This one-year programme aims to teach you the core skills and processes required to progress on to full-time Masters study. Studying within our distinctive conservatoire environment will allow you to work closely with musical theatre performers, actors, musicians and artists from across RCS.

You will focus on the development of skills with regular one-to-one lessons in keyboard skills, scoring, arranging and conducting, while project workshops will look to provide the space and insight needed to explore all musical directing processes. These sessions will include coaching the voice, working with a creative team, band coaching, advanced sound programming techniques, leading an ensemble and ultimately, performance.

You will also work with specialist project mentors to support your individual aims and goals, and to gain insight into how your artistic practice relates to musical theatre. Opportunities to observe, assist and lead on projects will be explored as you grow in skill and experience, with the aim of supporting the next generation of innovative and highly skilled musical directors.
