I should have explained that the RSAMD is the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. These days it is really a University of the performing arts. The students following the degree programme in Traditional Scots Music are encouraged to build onto that a teaching qualification. My information is that successful graduates become full-time performers, arts officers in local authorities, music teachers in schools etc. Personally I think that having music teachers in schools who have a thorough appreciation of traditional music is an enormous plus (so is having arts officers in LAs with that background, I'd have thought).
Onward and upward,
