Conducting Faculty

All courses, whether online or in the classroom, are taught by experienced faculty from the Messiah University Department of Music who, as performers in their own right, bring a wealth of experience to their teaching and will mentor you in your education and career. Messiah’s music faculty is renowned and sought-after regionally and nationally in their areas of performance and expertise and is a hallmark of our master’s in conducting program.

Messiah's faculty in the conducting program have been nothing short of excellent in terms of their musical preparation, their background and experience, and what they bring to the program.
