(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.

MUSIC 366 focuses on the development of more advanced physical skills and gestures appropriate for conducting expressive performances and rehearsals of music ensembles. The instructional format includes instructor demonstrations, student conducting of the class ensemble, and active participation as a performer and observer for peer conductors. Outside of class, students are expected to practice conducting gestures and use basic score study skills as preparation for conducting assigned music. Students prepare several music scores and conduct the class ensemble in practice episodes and instructor-evaluated performances. Students receive feedback and peer feedback on their performances in both practice and evaluated conducting episodes. Students are graded through instructor evaluation of conducting performances, completion of self-assessments involving review of a video of their performances, and participation in providing feedback for peers.
