This module aims to equip students with the essential skills required for conducting choral and instrumental ensembles. It addresses the technical skills involved, in addition to skills relating to rehearsing, rehearsal-planning, and other administrative functions.
Students on this module acquire practical experience of conducting choirs and orchestras. In addition, the technique of other conductors is analysed, and issues relating to performance practice and repertoire choice are considered. The module also addresses issues surrounding intellectual property and financial matters (such as contracts for hiring music and soloists). It prepares students for direct experience of conducting, working with both professional and amateur musicians (including children and musicians who do not read musical notation).
