The right direction
In your October issue, you explored whether music colleges are preparing students sufficiently for today’s world. Originally from Scotland, I am a soprano in my third year of studying at Royal College of Music: I graduated from the two-year Masters in Vocal Performance in 2018 and am now on the Artist Diploma in Opera (Royal College of Music Opera Studio). The staff at the RCM are passionate about tailoring students’ educational experience and making it relevant to them as individuals: they challenge us all to go further in our studies and make the most of the broad skill set naturally available to musicians. We are preparing to enter into an increasingly competitive industry: the extensive range of opportunities available here at the RCM encourage us to follow our initiative and harness our creativity to carve a portfolio career path.
