MMED 732 Instrumental Music Education with Passion

3 credits 45.0 hours
700 level graduate course

This course offers an opportunity to explore conducting and rehearsal techniques, critical listening and the teaching of ensemble performance skills. The focus will be on developing specific ways to correct, prevent or elicit a musical outcome, while improving our ability to motivate and inspire students in rehearsals. Simply put: how to change what we are doing, to get what we want. Rehearsal concepts, as well as gestures and techniques will be studied to elicit a physical as well as emotional response from performers. The goal is to develop greater control while achieving extremely musical results using a cause and effect approach for emulating sound in motion. In addition, the course examines common misunderstandings and errors made by conductors, offering ideas to solve these problems.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
