MUS 52.01 Conducting and Artistic Direction

This course provides a practical introduction and the theoretical underpinnings for the art of conducting and study of the musical score. At the center of this endeavor is the analysis of music through the lens of the conductor-scholar, which develops in the expression of music through gesture. Students will be required to attend weekly workshops in the art of conducting, as well as in the study and analysis of three major works of contrasting styles. The course culminates in a final conducting workshop with professional musicians.




Two courses from MUS 21-23, and one course from MUS 6, 10, 11, or 40-44, or permission of the instructor

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
