Short Conducting Courses

The RNCM operates an extremely popular programme of short conducting courses, which are open to all.

These courses are led by Mark Heron in conjunction with a range of guest teachers and are aimed at young conductors who may be considering full time study; professional performers and educators for whom conducting is part of a wider portfolio of activities; and amateur musicians wishing to develop their skills.
