Phase 1

FOR FULL-TIME STUDENTS (OR THOSE WHO HAVE RECENTLY FINISHED STUDYING), AGE 16+, WHO WANT TO BECOME PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS OR MUSIC TEACHERS 

"A truly inspiring workshop that provided a great starting point for my conducting studies."  -  Felicity Cliffe, Phase 1 workshop participant

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.
