MUS 52 Conducting

The conductor has ultimate responsibility for an ensemble's performance. This course is designed to provide a philosophical basis and practical introduction to the art and discipline of conducting music. Preparation of the score (melodic, harmonic and form analysis, transposing instruments and clefs), baton technique, historical styles and performance practices, and rehearsal procedures will be studied and applied. Instrumental and vocal music will be incorporated into daily class assignments as well as midterm and final project performances.


MUS 20, or permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
