Association Of British Choral Directors

Basic Conducting Skills

Saturday 3rd February 2018

Polish Millennium House, Bordesley Street, Birmingham, B5 5PH

New to conducting choirs and want some help? Been conducting for a while and want to refresh your skills? Thinking about starting your own choir?

Join us for a day of practical skills development with Liz Garnett! We'll cover the fundamentals you need to warm up, rehearse and direct a choir, to help you lead your singers with confidence. We anticipate that participants have a basic ability to read staff notation, though if you work mostly from ear there will be tips to help you with leading your choir too!

Cost £60 abcd members, £70 non-members
