Emily Norris MMus Performance, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow The support The Cross Trust has given me to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has been truly life-changing. The Trust's generosity allowed me to get the very most out of my studies and to develop as a vocalist, performer and music educator. Throughout my Master of Music degree, my vocal technique improved and I was given an array of wonderful performance opportunities that helped prepare me for a career as a professional musician. I was also fortunate enough to continue specialising in Kodály Musicianship: a method that I am passionate about and that I utilise regularly in my own music teaching. Without The Cross Trust's continued support, completing a Master of Music degree and beginning a career in music would not have been possible and so I am hugely grateful. Thank you!
