Choral conducting mastery is within your reach

Prepare for a successful career in choral conducting in a wildly collaborative environment where you’ll have ample opportunities to learn and create.

You’ll spend your academic hours in a bustling environment with nine choral ensembles, as many as six opera choruses each season, a pool of over 300 gifted singers, and one of the most comprehensive music libraries in the world.

You’ll benefit from a comprehensive curriculum with a full sequence of courses in conducting, choral literature, rehearsal techniques, and score reading, and receive private lessons with a faculty member each week.

And you’ll put what you learn into practice both as a conductor and as a teacher.
