The program trains the student in all the different facets of the conducting profession from the choice of repertoire to the final concert presentation and all the intermediate stages of planning and organisation. The program balances broad theoretical knowledge with hands-on practical experience conducting groups in an academic context (for example in the Conducting Practice class) as well as a more professional environment (Artistic Internship class). At the end of the degree, the students will organise and conduct a joint concert for choir or symphony orchestra depending on the specialisation. Capitalising on Esmuc’s unique position as an academic reference in Barcelona, the capital of a region with a long tradition of choral and orchestral music, the student will have access to multiple professional and semi-professional groups to work with on their personal projects.

Objectives The main objective of the Master of Advanced Conducting degree is to provide future conductors with the necessary specialised education. This is achieved by developing the following specific objectives: Train the future conductor in all the facets of the conductor’s profession in the XXIc. from the choice of a repertoire adequate for the particular group to the performance including the intermediate stages of studying, rehearsing and resource management. Provide the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge to conduct choral or instrumental groups of various configurations, characteristics and proficiency levels. Expose the student to the western repertoire of both choral and orchestral music and the different aesthetic tendencies. Give the student the tools to project and develop herself professionally using traditional channels and resources as well as those particular of new technologies. Student profile The Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya, as a center for specialised higher education, offers this master’s program to students holding an undergraduate degree in music.

This measure is to ensure an even level among the student body.
