If this line of inquiry is interesting to you and you'd like to become a lab partner, the Glenn Korff School of Music offers MM and DMA degrees in wind band conducting. Applicants to the wind band conducting program should be individuals who wish to join a community of scholars, performers and pedagogues dedicated to the study and practice of band conducting as an applied performance medium. Enrollment in the wind band conducting studio is intentionally limited and auditions are competitive. Typically, the studio includes three students (a variable combination of MM and DMA candidates), therefore a high degree of musicianship, scholarship, and professionalism, as well as an engaging interpersonal style are essential. The objective of the program is to develop skillful, artistic, and innovative conductors who are prepared to excel and explore in both professional and academic settings. Specific information regarding application and audition procedures, including graduate teaching assistantships, is posted on the Glenn Korff School of Music site.
