The Master of Music in Choral Conducting prepares students to pursue careers in high school teaching, church music, professional conducting or to undertake further studies at the doctoral level, positioning them to become college professors. The program develops knowledge and skills in historical context, performing practice, interpretive issues, performance techniques, kinetic control, non-verbal communication, vocal techniques, rehearsal techniques, aural skills, organizational techniques and marketing.

Students applying to the M.M. in Choral Conducting program at SMU Meadows School of the Arts must submit video of their conducting and interview with the Director of Choral Activities. Finalists will be invited to campus for a conducting audition with our ensembles.
