PaTRAM Institute is pleased to announce a new online course to its catalog, entitled “Score Analysis for the Conductor.” Designed and taught by PaTRAM Senior Faculty member, Dr. Peter Jermihov, the course addresses a rarely taught aspect of the church musician’s education.
“Score Analysis for the Conductor” will expose the aspiring conductor to a method of score preparation that will deepen his/her ability to grasp a composition’s operative principles, enhance his/her connection to the central idea of the work, improve his/her ability to read a score at the piano, and make possible a sensible vision and presentation to the ensemble; it will enable the conductor to develop rehearsal strategies based on concrete musical processes in the score and merge a theoretical understanding with a practical preparation of the score for conducting.
Every serious conductor should develop a method for thorough score preparation and have a clear vision of what to ask of the singers under his/her leadership. This course will give you the skills necessary to be a well-prepared conductor.
Registration begins immediately and anyone interested in taking this unique course offering should go to the registration page and fill out the application. Musicianship I is a pre-requisite for this course.
