Young Conductor Day

Saturday 22nd May 2021

9.30am - 3.30pm, Zoom

This event is now fully booked.

This online training day, led by Lucy Hollins, is a fantastic opportunity for young musicians (aged between 14 and 18 years old) to learn about the foundations of musical leadership. We will focus on conducting technique and beat patterns as well as how to teach songs and lead rounds efficiently, and how to direct a variety of simple songs in different meters, styles and languages. No previous conducting experience is necessary, but the day is also suitable for those who already have some experience in leading singing and would like to develop their conducting and musical skills.

There will be four sessions during the day, all held on Zoom.

Price: £30 (Thanks to grant funding, we are able to offer a subsidised fee for this course)
