Studying Scottish traditional music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

The Scottish Music course of study provides excellent traditional teachers and opportunities for professional experience. While the undergraduate course is highly structured (a bit too much, I think), the masters course is relatively new and under-attended, so they are still figuring it out.  The course leaves a lot of choice up to you, but doesn't really try to familiarize you with how the teaching and classes are organized. I only learned what comprised my course - besides learning traditional Scottish singing - when I arrived, and had to figure out what classes to attend virtually on the spot. I've since learned from the undergraduates what sorts of classes are available; and there is such an immersive and inclusive musical atmosphere of a very high calibre in Glasgow that it is easy to supplement my studies. My advice would be to be firm with the director of your course in explaining any and all confusion, and trust that it won't reflect negatively on you.
