Music Conductors and Directors
Formal training in at least one musical instrument is necessary
for a future as a music conductor or director. Keyboard instruction
is particularly important. In high school, participation in a
concert band, jazz ensemble, choir, or orchestra will teach you
about group performing and how the various parts contribute to a
whole sound. Some high schools may offer opportunities to conduct
school music groups.
