The MMus degree is intended for students who are seeking an extended and thorough professional grounding at Masters level in their chosen area of specialism. This is a two-year full-time programme, leading to 240 SCQF credits at level 11 (120 ECTS credits). The majority of the teaching and learning takes place in four 15-week trimesters, with a break for trimester three of the first year. 27 weeks of one-and-a-half hour principal study lessons are offered, to a total of 81 hours across the two years.

As a student on the MMus/MA Repetiteurship programme, you will work and study as part of the internationally reputable Alexander Gibson Opera School. In your studies you will work regularly with staff from the Alexander Opera School, who have considerable professional experience both nationally and internationally.

The programme will give you the opportunity to learn and study all of the core and related skill sets; piano lessons, languages, coaching, continuo playing, style, repertoire and conducting. A large part of your training will be in practical sessions, playing for classes, opera scenes rehearsals, full productions and, where appropriate, conducting.
