Course Summary


As a student on the MMus 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.

Supporting Studies incorporates many of the distinctive features of conservatoire study, and contributes towards the creation of a near-professional learning environment. In this module, you will have the opportunity to take part in a range of negotiated activities in support both of your Principal Study and your development as an emerging professional. The emphasis is on working with your peers, whether through the presentation of performance classes or collaborative activities such as chamber music, orchestra or ensemble work. The module also incorporates a series of cohort-wide graduate seminars, addressing such areas as research skills, critical thinking, professional development, reflective practice, health and wellbeing, and equality and diversity.
