Choral Conducting/Orchestral Conducting

Designed for recent graduates and suitably qualified mature students, this course in conducting provides the technical training, collaborative opportunities and podium time necessary to launch a career as a professional conductor.You will work across the whole spectrum of the conservatoire�s musical making, from core contemporary repertoire and student composition projects, through the central romantic and classic masterpieces back to period performance techniques. It is normal for conducting students to be proactive in presenting performances of projects that they have generated themselves. You will receive support and professional advice in pursuing such projects, which should be viewed as an essential element of your studies.
