This programme will be attractive to advanced performers on early keyboard instruments: organ, clavichord or harpsichord. Teaching is undertaken by an experienced keyboard performer within Music and in the city of Edinburgh.
A particular strength is the teaching and research potential of world-famous Raymond Russell Collection of Early Keyboard Instruments housed at St Cecilia’s Hall. There are also excellent and varied organs available (in particular the Ahrend in the Reid Concert Hall, which is built in an early 18th-century German style).
Three taught or supervised courses are taken over two semesters, making a total of 120 credits. A final keyboard recital is prepared for over the remaining four months and gives a further 60 credits. The structure of the programme is as follows:
|Individual Research Project||20|
|Early Keyboard Performance A (harpsichord or organ)||40|
|Early Keyboard Performance B (harpsichord or organ)||40|
|Final Keyboard Recital||60|
