Conducting and Music Teaching Program
Teaching and Performing Through GesturesThe Conducting and Music Teaching Program offers developing young musicians the opportunity to extend their orchestral music education in conducting and musical pedagogy. It provides essential skills and knowledge to help students develop as a musician, teacher, and conductor.

- How to teach a musical instrument to students using a structured approach
- How to conduct an ensemble using basic conducting techniques
- How to run engaging and productive rehearsals and sectionals
- Mastering the art of practising an instrument at an advanced level
- Developing effective audition techniques
- Planning and delivering musical events and performances
- Participating in masterclasses
- Developing skills in leadership including managing conflict, motivation, giving praise and criticism, communication and problem solving
Ages: Tertiary level and advanced high school students wishing to pursue music at a tertiary level and beyond.
