Conducting 1 with Live Keyboard Ensemble

Course Number
COND-216
Description

This course emphasizes in-depth score study and elements involved with the formulation of musical ideas, the role of the conductor, and the proper kind of relationship between the conductor and the orchestra. Students gain valuable experience rehearsing and conducting an ensemble. The course utilizes eight keyboards, allowing the formation of an in-class live keyboard ensemble creating a virtual orchestral sound. Each of eight performers play their own individual lines from the score while one person conducts and rehearses the ensemble. Each conductor will be videotaped while in front of the ensemble for further study.
