Course content

This Masters will provide you with opportunities to develop insight and experience in historical performance practice of music. The MMus, taught jointly with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly RSAMD), combines vocal or instrumental study with performance-related academic research and an element of apprenticeship with professional ensembles.

  • We offer the unique opportunity to study alongside world-class performer-scholars, and to work both within the University and the Conservatoire environment.
  • The UK’s first UNESCO city of music, Glasgow is home to the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Opera and National Theatre of Scotland.
  • If you’re aspiring to perform professionally or wishing to undertake historical research relating to performance practice, or both: this programme is designed for you.
  • As an accomplished performer, this programme will enhance your performance skills and knowledge with detailed, rigorous study of historical performance practice (particularly of music of the 17th and 18th centuries).
  • You will benefit from access to our facilities including seminar and practice rooms, the University library, two audio labs and an electroacoustic music studio, the University’s concert hall and attached studios. You will also have access to facilities at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
