The Joint Principal Study pathway is a 4 year programme aimed at performers of outstanding potential and who are equally accomplished in two Principal Study disciplines (e.g. Flute and Composition, or Trumpet and Conducting, etc.) and who wish to maintain this intense level of dedication in their musical studies. The degree prepares you for either specialist postgraduate study or for employment as performers, teachers or other 'portfolio careers' in the music profession. Along with your Principal Study, the core units are key practical studies (performance classes, workshops and masterclasses, orchestral and ensemble work), practical and contextual studies (teaching and community placements) and applied Academic Studies. Choosing to study music in Glasgow means you will be part of the UK’s largest music economy, outside of London. Glasgow is home to the national companies including the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Opera, Royal National Scottish Orchestra and Scottish Ensemble. We have partnerships with all of these organisations and our students benefit from playing opportunities, internships and masterclasses with our professional neighbours.
