PROFESSIONAL MUSIC PERFORMANCE DIPLOMAS IN DRUMS

Structure and accreditation
Music Performance Diploma courses run partially full-time and are between 6 to 7 months in duration depending on the qualification level and size of the group. They are very intensive in nature with three days attendance required per week consisting of 3 hours (9.30am – 12.30pm).

Each qualification is UK accredited offering UCAS credits towards further university study. Each diploma offers a different amount of credits on successful completion:

Level 4 (DipRSL) = 90 credits
Level 6 (LRSL) = 180 credits

Real world qualifications
DipRSL at Level 4 is quality equivalent to the first year of a BA Degree and Level 6 is quality equivalent to the third year of a BA Degree. The Level 6 is also referred to as a Licentiate in Music Performance. These qualifications can enhance teaching career prospects at a formal institution. It is possible to gain both Level 4 and Level 6 qualifications in one year with a committed attitude and enthusiastic study focus.
Outstanding value and quality

As a diploma student you will enjoy these benefits on each Performance Diploma course:
• Around 220 hours of specialist interactive tuition
• Expert guidance all the way
• Thorough pre exam preparation
• Diploma exam entry fee included
• Study materials included (minus candidate research)
• A motivating and inspiring student environment
• Small group classes offering individual attention

Course content and what’s covered
As an RSL Music Performance Diploma student you will improve your overall standard and playing ability while gaining an internationally recognised professional music qualification. The intensive curriculum improves motor skills, technique and sound, explores contemporary and traditional musical concepts, and encourages research into a wider range of repertoire across different styles. Additionally, it develops modern stagecraft requirements and informs students of important music business and promotional practices essential for any independent musician in todays industry.

Eligibility requirements
Level 4 – DipRSL
Entry requirements require at least a Grade 8 or equivalent music qualification. Exemption can be applied for if you have sufficient proven evidence of performing ability and experience (Shows, recordings, tours, etc). One letter of reference will be required from a music professional. Prospective students will need to submit their qualification and also pass an audition process to be eligible.

Level 6 – LRSL
Entry requirements require at least a Grade 8 with sufficient proven performing experience or a Level 4 or equivalent music qualification with experience. Two letters of reference will be required from music professionals. Prospective students will need to submit their qualification/s and also pass an audition process to be eligible.
Useful advice: South African students who are successful in gaining a diploma can apply to SAQA (South African Qualifications Authority) to obtain the equivalent local NVQ accreditation should they require this for a local job application.

If you are interested in applying for any of these courses contact us to arrange an initial assessment session to evaluate your eligibility.

Courses begin when the required number of at least 5 students has registered.

PROFESSIONAL TEACHING DIPLOMAS FOR INSTRUMENTAL AND VOCAL TEACHERS

Overview
These specialist courses are offered on a full-time and part time basis at level 4 (DipRSL) and level 6 (LRSL) which is a Licentiate.

They are intended for music teachers who would like to gain a professional music teaching qualification and be expertly guided throughout the learning process. While choosing to go it alone in opting for the online option which fundamentally means paying the exam fee and receiving guidelines on how to proceed might work for some, these courses eliminate all guesswork and are aimed at a highly successful outcome.

Your highly experienced instructor with a 100% success rate in delivering these courses will skilfully navigate you through every step of the programme. While this is validated fact, it is the responsibility of every candidate to apply everything learned and put in the required amount of effort to gain maximum benefit.

In choosing to take a course part-time you will gain your qualification in a much lesser time frame and in doing so will prove to be more cost effective when compared to the cost of attending a full-time institution awarding a similar level professional qualification. The full-time option is a week long and is very intensive in nature requiring a full-time commitment for the entire course length.

Both part-time and full-time course options are carefully structured with a focus whereby all students maintain pace comfortably and complete all tasks effectively within the given time periods. Of great significance is the delivery process that incorporates a positive and interactive environment, whereby all involved benefit from enhancing their teaching skills and knowledge. In short, you will not only receive a career advancing qualification offering post-nominal letters after your name, your teaching knowledge will be expanded and enriched.
