Orchestra courses for a specific instrument are commonly taken by students who have decided to focus on music at the university level. These courses give instruction about how to properly play a specific instrument. Students can take courses at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels, and many music degree programs require that a student be proficient with at least a few different instruments.
Conducting courses are usually only offered by universities, though some secondary courses offer limited instruction in conducting techniques. These orchestra courses teach students how to manage an orchestra and how to read and interpret a score. It takes many years to learn to conduct well, and like instrumental courses, the skills needed to conduct are usually taught in beginning, intermediate and advanced level courses.
Other courses teach how to compose and arrange orchestral music. Though this type of music is not as popular around the world as it once was, orchestral music plays underneath the video of many films and television shows as well as under the action of live theatrical performances. An abundance of new orchestral music is produced each year, and courses in orchestral composition can help a person prepare for a job as a composer.
