The WVU School of Music has a unique environment where our students can work with a faculty consisting of internationally known performers, pedagogues and scholars. The Master's in Conducting is a comprehensive program where students will not only have a primary area of emphasis in either orchestral, wind band, or choral conducting, but will also take lessons and courses in the other secondary areas. It is strongly recommended that those desiring admission to this degree have a minimum of two years successful teaching/conducting experience beyond their undergraduate conducting courses.
