Led by acclaimed conductor Alice Farnham, these 2-day workshops are aimed at encouraging female music students age 16 and over, who want to become professional musicians / music teachers, to pick up the baton and take to the conductor's podium, mostly for the first time.
Participants will get the chance to work with pianists, instrumental ensembles, and a stagecraft and body language coach over both days, and will receive individual guidance and feedback from the workshop leaders.
The Phase 1 workshops are tailored to those who have never considered conducting and want to give it a try, as well as those with some conducting experience who would like to reaffirm these skills.
Who is eligible to apply?
Women, age 16+, who are in (or have recently finished) full-time education at conservatoire, music college or university, or are currently in sixth form planning to study music full-time.
How can I apply?
Applicants must submit a CV, a short personal statement and their age/date of birth when applying for a Phase 1 workshop. Applications for workshops will open as and when they are announced (see Upcoming Workshops above).

Observer tickets are available at £15 per session (morning/afternoon), or £50 for all four sessions across both days.
