MUSC 641 Conducting for Media
This course is a tutorial in the art and science of conducting live orchestra in film, television, and new media recording sessions. Instruction focuses not only on the traditional role of the conductor in interpreting the score and bringing out the strongest performance, but also on issues of preparation and execution unique to media music recording sessions. Students will practice conducting each others’ scores as well as their own, in order to prepare them for a future that early on will likely include work as composer’s assistants. In addition to conducting technique, intense solfege training using all clefs commonly encountered in media music orchestra sessions deepens the students’ ability to read and work with scores. Exercises to hear and identify playing mistakes during a recording session round out this intense and important part of the program.
