MMus Scottish Music

Welcome to the MMus/MA (Scottish Music). You begin your postgraduate studies with the core of your musical personality – the skills, understandings and attitudes that define you as a piper – already established; your postgraduate studies should nurture that existing artistic personality so that you can really make a difference in the fields in which you choose to work.

The National Piping Centre delivers the piping tuition on the MMus Scottish Music in collaboration with the teaching from the Royal Scottish Conservatoire, to deliver the very best programme of tuition. 

The programme offers advanced training to talented traditional musicians from a diverse range of undergraduate degrees or their equivalent, allowing you to refine and extend your musicianship in the context of your own aspirations. Most importantly, we have designed it so that you take ownership of the learning process throughout the degree and beyond it, whether in the professional world or in higher studies (such as a PhD).
