13CON

NCEA Level 3 Music Conducting

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Dr H. Renaud

The 13CON course is aimed at students who would like to develop their skills in leadership and Conducting in Music. Approval from the HOD Music is required and students will need to have completed level 2 Music before being considered. It is expected that students taking 13CON will also be taking 13MUO although this can be negotiated on an individual basis. 

Students will be taught to conduct music to a rudimentary standard. This will involve preparing pieces for music conducting, performing rudimentary music conducting gestures, and conducting three music pieces of contrasting speed, style, and dynamics.

Students will also be able to make a significant contribution to a music performance ensemble in terms of its musical preparation, organisation, and live performance.
