Music beyond the classroom

Higher music pupils enjoyed an interesting afternoon with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's Dr Diana Salazar.

Diana, who is the Associate Head of BMus and Creative and Contextual studies delivered a talk explaining the advantages of studying music and the exciting opportunities available beyond the classroom.

Following undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Flute and Composition at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, Diana completed a PhD in Composition at the University of Manchester and regularly has her works performed both nationally and internationally.

As an experienced composer and sound artist, Diana went on to teach at Kingston University London and City University London before moving back up to Glasgow to lecture at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Answering lots of questions, Diana talked about the courses available to study at the Conservatoire, highlighting what to expect when applying and the expectations of students at the institution which has been ranked third in the world for performing arts education by the prestigious QS World Rankings 2017.

Staff and pupils thanked Diana for her insightful talk.
