This summer conducting course is offered as two separate weeks - the first week is designed for those with a modest amount of experience, while the second week is aimed at more advanced students who have a considerable amount of experience. Students may attend the two weeks consecutively.
Summer Conducting Programme:
Through daily individual and group tuition, this comprehensive programme comprises all of the essential performance and rehearsal aspects for young conductors.
Topics covered include:
• Score reading and preparation
• Baton technique
• Controlling, shaping and phrasing
• Rehearsal experience
• Rehearsal technique
• Musical analysis and history
We provide students with the opportunity to spend time both observing and contributing to rehearsals with the Ingenium Academy orchestra/choir.
They will also have the opportunity to conduct part of a live rehearsal, in addition to working with smaller chamber ensembles.
During the summer programme, conducting students will have the rare opportunity to attend "question and answer" sessions with professional orchestral players, to learn from their perspective about the best forms of direction and communication for each instrument group.
Other Summer Programmes:
In addition to the conducing programme, our international summer music camp offers four other musical programmes: piano, saxophone, orchestral, and voice programmes, as well as a range of musical and vocal workshops in classical, opera, jazz, pop, and gospel.
