New music degrees to broaden career opportunities for USD students
According to Timothy P. Farrell, D.M.A., chair of USD’s Department of Music, the degrees will provide invaluable opportunities to interact with world-class musicians, which will prepare them for a wide range of career pathways.
“The choral conducting graduate degree will provide students with opportunities to collaborate with experienced conductors who will provide outstanding technical and repertoire advice, while using the podium time as a teaching laboratory,” said Farrell. “Further, our nationally-renowned USD piano faculty will train students with real-life chamber music opportunities, advancing their skills in piano accompanying and performing.”
The two new graduate degrees join the music department’s curriculum offerings that include specializations in music education, music history, performance and the history of musical instruments.
