The Conducting Department
In the Performing Arts study program – module Conducting, significant attention is given to the development of students’ creative artistic capacities, with an aim to form the music personality of a higher-level professional conductor.
In addition to acquiring abilities for independent artistic activity and participation in work of diverse performers and ensembles, students gain competencies for work in the field of music pedagogy in music and general education schools, as well as in the cultural institutions.
The classes are individual (in the main subject – Conducting, Piano, Music score playing) and group (Basics of vocal technique, Solfeggio, Harmony, Musical forms, Counterpoint, and other courses).
The main subject program requirements are precisely defined, leaving nevertheless the space for the individual program to be formed according to each student’s capabilities. Gradualness in the rise of the program requirements enables continual development of interpretative-technical potentials in students.
Learning outcomes include obtaining skills for practicing and rehearsing, playing in ensembles, artistic expression and public performance, understanding the repertoire and music material, along with skills in teaching conducting using contemporary principles and methods.
Professional title gained upon completing master academic studies in module Conducting is master musician.
