Led by acclaimed conductor Alice Farnham, this two day women conductors Phase 1 workshop is aimed at encouraging female music students ages 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.
