Course Description

Join us in Glasgow for five inspiring days, offering Foundation and Intermediate 1 level training for conductors and vocal leaders!

Full course dates (all Saturdays): 17 March; 14 April; 12 May; 16 June; 30 June.

Whether you’re wanting to try your hand at conducting for the first time, looking to improve your musicianship skills or refresh skills gained on previous courses, you can look forward to a challenging and enjoyable time in a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere. Courses are delivered in two ways: technique sessions that include practical demonstrations, and workshop sessions where participants put into practice what they have learned. Participants have an enviable amount of personal podium time and also sing for each other to aid their learning and observation skills.
