About the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Dumfries House partnership

Currently, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland offers strings and modern ballet programmes at Dumfries House, giving young people the opportunity to access high-quality, specialist tuition in the beautiful surroundings of this 18th century Palladian mansion, set in a 2,000-acre estate.

Dumfries House is one of Scotland’s architectural jewels and was saved from closure by HRH the Prince of Wales (known in Scotland as the Duke of Rothesay) in 2007 to become a centre of education and regeneration, offering training opportunities to the local community in engineering, art and hospitality.

With Dumfries House wishing to add performing arts to its growing portfolio, a partnership with Royal Conservatoire of Scotland was formed in 2016 through HRH the Prince of Wales, who is patron of both institutions.

I've also taken techniques that I will utilise in my classroom… building softer skills – confidence, risk taking, interacting with others, feeling safe to do all of this – is important.' - Dan, Special Educational Needs Teacher (SEN), AYG CPD Training, Corelli College

  • 'I love doing it and it is something that I want to do alongside my artistic work. It’s a necessary part of what we do, how the art lives out and what we learn from each other.' - Tara Siddall, actor, poet and singer and one of our workshop leaders for AYG

John McCusker, Musicians in Museums

Musicians in Museums

National Maritime Museum, London, United Kingdom

Staff members of the National Coal Mining Museum on Bryony Griffith and Andy Seward's residency:

  • “I must admit I enjoyed singing much more than I expected. I was surprised how quickly we all picked up the music and lyrics. I felt good that I had been asked to be part of the group. I realise also that I like folk songs and their portrayal of life years ago.”

    “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Bryony and Andy.  It’s been great fun learning our coal mining songs and being able to perform them at the Museum’s 30th anniversary celebration, as well as contribute to the Radio Ballad.  It has been great to spend time with colleagues (both staff and volunteers) outside of our ‘day jobs’ and I think the experience has brought us closer together as a team too.  I would love it if the Caphouse singers could continue into the future, perhaps getting more colleagues and visitors involved.  I think that music is a really great way to encourage more people to connect with the coal mining heritage and its stories.”

  • To offer a creative opportunity for a professional musician working in the English folk idiom (song/instrumental) to draw upon the collection(s) and themes of the museum to inspire a new piece of music;
  • For the artist to develop their communication skills through leading workshops with eg young people, schools, adult groups, which will illuminate their creative practice and process and providing a different way to present the museum’s collections.
  • To bring together tangible and intangible heritage through the creation of a new musical work and associated education projects and develop new audiences for both.
