UTC Summer Pedagogy and Conducting Institutes
The UTC Summer Pedagogy and Conducting Institutes are for music educators and ensemble directors hoping to improve and refine their conducting and rehearsal techniques while learning from nationally and internationally recognized clinicians. The city of Chattanooga and campus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga provide a scenic backdrop for these rigorous yet inspirational institutes that include morning lectures, drills, and exercises, and afternoon rehearsals with an ensemble. Conductor participants will have daily podium time in a masterclass setting with feedback provided by our guest clinicians along with UTC music faculty.
There are separate Choral and Instrumental tracks, each with two one-week Institutes, for four Institutes in total. Institute participants can register for 3 hours of graduate credit (2 weeks required) or select the non-credit option for 35 or 70 professional development hours (1 week or 2 weeks, respectively).
