Professional Graduate Diploma in Musical Directing

    1 year full-time

Course Description

We want to work with aspiring musical directors on this exciting new Professional Graduate Diploma in Musical Direction at Scotland’s national conservatoire.

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.

Entry Requirements

Applicants are normally expected to hold an appropriate undergraduate degree, or its overseas equivalent, in a subject area relevant to the demands of the programme.
