City of London School for Girls, St Giles Terrace, Barbican, London EC2Y 8BB

The Royal Philharmonic Society returns to the City of London School for Girls to present a Phase 1 Women Conductors course.

Phase 1 courses are tailored to female musicians aged 16 and over, who are completely new to conducting and interested in trying it, as well as those with elemental conducting experience looking to build on their skills. Artistic Director Alice Farnham will take 12 participants through the basics of conducting, with professional repetiteurs and a small string ensemble. They'll also receive expert tuition on body posture and stagecraft from coach Alma Sheehan to boost their confidence on the podium.

Applications for this workshop close on Monday 28 October at midday. Click here to find out more and apply.
