MUSC 179

Applied Conducting

This course will focus on developing each student's ability to organize and lead rehearsals of vocal and instrumental ensembles. During the term progressive exercises on beat patterns, transpositions, and score reading, combined with score analyses, will lead to an investigation of rehearsal procedures and teaching strategies. By arrangement with the instructor, students will have the opportunity to lead ensembles in rehearsals to acquire practical experience in applying techniques examined in the classroom. May be repeated for credit. Applied music fee required.
