Course Summary

Introduction

As a student on the 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.

Previous students who have studied this discipline at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland have gone on to study and work at the highest level including at the National Opera Studio, the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House, Scottish Opera, English National Opera, Opera North, Dortmund, Darmstadt and the Amsterdam Opera Studio. Students can also exit with PGDip awards.

Modules

The primary focus of your learning will be the Principal Study. This core activity ? and in particular, the individual lesson ? will refine the skills essential to meeting the artistic and technical expectations of the programme. It will equip you with many of the skills needed to exercise independent learning and develop the autonomy necessary for a professional career. In the case of the degrees in Performance, and Historically Informed Performance Practice, the Principal Study is your instrumental or vocal discipline; for the degrees in Opera, Conducting, Repetiteurship, Piano for Dance, and Accompaniment, it refers to the full range of skills associated with those roles, including high-level performance skills.
