About

The Orchestral Conducting program from University of British Columbia features private conducting study and significant podium time. Teaching Assistantships in conducting and ensembles provide vital experiential learning opportunities throughout the degree.

Overview

Entrance to the M.Mus. in Orchestral Conducting at University of British Columbia is based upon the admission portfolio (including a pre-screen video) as well as an in-person audition for invited candidates. Artist teachers seeking to advance their conducting studies are also encouraged to apply.

What makes the program unique?

The M.Mus. with emphasis in orchestral conducting gives the aspiring professional orchestral conductor an unequaled opportunity to receive consistent, ample podium time with a high-level conservatory orchestra. Students work extensively one-on-one with conducting professors and fulfill leadership roles as assistant conductors.

This is an extremely selective program that usually accepts only one student per year to ensure optimal podium time and opportunities.
