One Year MFA Programme Choral Conducting

With more than half a million people participating in 15,000 choirs, there is a great need for well-trained choir leaders and choral conductors in Sweden. The new Master’s programme includes training in music from different traditions, although the focus is on Western choral music. The programme will prepare you to lead choral singing in diverse contexts for both children and young people and for adult singers.

The programme provides the opportunity to develop and deepen your musical expertise and to reflect on your own artistry. You will also have the potential to grow in your role as a leader; working with people and promoting their learning is an important part of the programme. As part of the training, you will also learn how the Swedish choral profession works and become familiar with key organisations.

The programme consists of seminars, lectures and group exercises, but there are also placements and independent projects. You are able to customise your education by choosing subjects, such as piano accompaniment, arrangement and vocal training for choir leaders. 60 hec / study-pace half-time over two academic years. This programme is taught in Swedish.
