MUS 0181 - Introduction to Conducting: Choral Emphasis


2 Credit Hours
The three primary objectives of this course are to prepare the mind, train the body, and cultivate the soul so that each conductor may clearly, artistically, and powerfully communicate with members of an ensemble. Each student will learn fundamentals of conducting and how to apply those skills specifically in the choral setting, while also having the chance to do that in the instrumental setting. Individual conducting skills will be developed through in-class conducting opportunities and out-of-class practice. Baton technique and non-baton technique, along with factors in interpretation, score reading, and rehearsal procedures for both vocal and instrumental organizations, with specific focus on the choral ensemble, will be the focus of this introductory course. 2-hours of lecture, with a 1-hour lab per week. Course Charge: $20.00 Music Equip Maintenance Chg Prerequisite:MUS 0211  .
