Conducting

波士顿音乐学院-指挥

波士顿音乐学院能够让你成为一个有足够自信诠释作曲家作品并且能够带动观众的指挥家。

波士顿音乐学院的指挥课程基于这样一种理念:当今的指挥家必须精通各种乐器演奏曲目,不论是管弦乐队、室内乐团、合奏、歌剧、又或者音乐剧、合唱团等。在受人尊敬的指挥家Bruce Hangen指导下,学生们可以观摩和参与管弦乐团和合唱团的排练和指挥,还能有机会与有才华的作曲学生合作,他们热衷于为波士顿观众创造高质量的演出。

学院为指挥学生准备许多站上指挥台的机会,这是指挥课程重要的一部分,例如波士顿音乐学院乐团就是专门为乐队指挥学生准备的,每个学期,指挥学生与管弦乐队排练,并为公众演出。第二年,指挥学生有机会与波士顿音乐学院乐团一同演出。

在整个乐队指挥课程中,学生每周都会接受Bruce Hangen的专业指挥课程学习,这些课程专门针对学生的特殊需要和技术要求。为了补充这一点,所有参加这个项目的学生每周都会参加一个管弦乐指挥研讨会,讨论与指挥有关的非技术性问题,例如:排练技巧、行为技巧和专业简历的建立。同时,学生还可以学习其他专业课程,学习他们的主要乐器,高级乐理和分析、音乐史及文学课程,以及选修亚历山大技法、歌剧等课程。

对于合唱指挥的学生,通过直接接触到学校著名的声乐或者歌剧教师,以及大量的合唱团体,有机会经常和全国最优秀的歌唱家一起表演。同时,学生们还要学习合唱曲目、总谱阅读和教育学课程,参与一些研讨会,旨在分享和探索排练技巧、曲目、声乐技巧,以及一系列的艺术和实践问题。在整个课程中,学生们还要每周接受声乐和乐器课程,以保持他们对声音的敏锐度。
