As an international student for the master of choral conducting

First, I am so sorry that I might make some mistakes in my English writing.
I am from Asia and seriously considering to take master degree in graduate school as soon as possible.
However, I am really confused because I do not know what to prepare for that, also, have no information about which grad school has a relatively good curriculum, faculties and so on.
Could somebody who know about the master of choral conducting possibly help me out?
Thank you.

Dear Minji Kim,
In the fall I will serve the University of Illinois School of Music as Interim Director of Choral Activities.  I invite you to contact me directly so that we may discuss your possibilities.

Minji,  there is a wonderful 3 summers master of choral conducting at CSULA in Southern California.  30 international students gather for 3 summers and work with leaders in our field.  Google 3 summers choral conducting CSULA and you will find curriculum info.   The director's email is sebastien.vallee(a)
good luck!
