The Junior Conservatoire in Aberdeenshire 

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland delivers two of its renowned Junior Conservatoire music and drama courses in Aberdeenshire: Acting and Traditional Music.  These courses are for talented and committed young people who aspire to develop their skills and potentially work towards full-time study and a career in the performing arts.

The Acting course is for young people aged 14–18 and focuses on developing core technique and craft to enable students to fulfil their ambitions of attending drama school.

The Traditional Music course is for musicians aged 11–18 who show potential in their instrument. You don’t need to be a certain grade to join the Junior Conservatoire – our goal is to spot your potential and work with you through one-to-one lessons and ensemble work to develop your skills to the highest possible level.

The Junior Conservatoire

For more than 50 years we’ve been encouraging thousands of young people to fulfil their artistic potential, develop essential life skills and explore a world of possibilities within the arts and far beyond.

Our Junior Conservatoire students are nurtured and empowered to be the best they can be in a vibrant, happy and encouraging environment where supporting young people is at the heart of everything we do. Our students access specialist training across the performing and production arts from world-class teachers and visiting artists who are leaders in their particular field.

Students study with us throughout the academic year and, as well as developing their artistic skills, they also meet other young people who share their passion for the arts, have fun and make friends for life.
