RNCM annual conducting course for music educators

Applications are now open for our annual conducting course aimed at those working in music education, or training to do so.

Led by Mark Heron, Acting Head of Conducting, this specialised course provides hands-on practical experience in a variety of genres, complemented by an e-learning component.

Participants develop their technical and artistic skills over three workshops in October, January and March. Thanks to partnerships with music hubs and youth orchestras, practical work takes place in front of young musicians, creating an environment that mirrors their own experience, while the online element includes bespoke material currently being developed via our ConductIT platform.

Mark says: ‘At the RNCM, we are very proud of our conducting courses, both for full-time students and the various short courses that we run. I’m very conscious of the outstanding work done by music educators throughout the UK, and we’re delighted to be able to continue this new course which focuses specifically on the skills needed to work with young musicians. Working with highly motivated music educators is a joy, and the ‘vibe’ amongst the participants is always excellent.’
