The Choir Conducting programme at Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music familiarizes students with general knowledge in music theory and music history and also the technique of choral conducting, the human voice, the theoretical and practical issues of sound and voice production and voice care, the history of choral art, the choral repertoire, the styles and their related knowledge of performing arts in the various specializations of choral art.
Certain personal qualities and skills are also necessary for conductors to conduct choirs, and acquire advanced conducting techniques. It is important to possess artistic sensitivity, advanced hearing and individual, well-trained vocal culture and proficiency in vocal chamber music.
The work of choral conductors belongs to the field of choral arts, which covers creating new ensembles, managing and conducting various types of choirs. Essentially, it is required that they manage the choirs artistic work continuously as well as in the longer term. Choral conductors can apply their theoretical, vocal and partly instrumental skills in the field of choral arts, and they are prepared to play an active and initiative role in cultivating Hungarys choral culture.
