    Choral Emphasis

  • Encounter a blend of the latest music education theory and real-world applications. 

    The Capital University Conservatory of Music is excited to announce the addition of a Choral Emphasis in our Master of Music in Music Education. In just three summers of intensive coursework and hands-on workshops, you’ll be challenged to elevate your teaching and conducting technique. Then you can bring what you learn in the summer to your classroom in the fall.

    In the Choral Emphasis program, you’ll encounter a blend of the latest music education theory and real-world applications. Course topics include Advanced Choral Conducting and Choral Repertoire, as well as the pedagogical concepts of Curriculum, Assessment, Music Psychology, and Educational Frameworks.

    A master’s program designed to work around — and for — you.
    Capital University's Conservatory of Music includes a distinguished faculty of respected scholars, sought-after teachers, conductors, clinicians and world-class performers who will teach and mentor you in a small class setting. Your master’s program will culminate in a Capstone Project consisting of either a Master’s Thesis or a Master’s Presentation. Along the way, you’ll develop a network of first-tier music educators — professionals to whom you can turn throughout your career for advice and guidance.
