Southbank Centre Composer's Collective: Conducting Crash Course

  • Southbank Centre Belvedere Road London SE1 8XX United Kingdom (map)

Are you a composer? Have you ever found yourself in front of an ensemble conducting your own music with no idea how to actually conduct? Bring your baton for this crash course in conducting with Maestra Karin Hendrickson.

Start with the basic geography and skills of conducting, and learn exercises and techniques to practice at home.

Learn to recognise, and avoid, the pitfalls of conducting and rehearsing a piece.

Karin Hendrickson takes you through several ways to work with an orchestra if you’re not an experienced conductor.

She also explains how to work in tandem with an experienced conductor to achieve your artistic vision for performances of your works by other ensembles.
