The Academy’s postgraduate conducting course is internationally recognised as one of the foremost programmes for training conductors.
Our students get unrivalled amounts of podium time – rehearsing with talented players in a variety of instrumental ensembles, from full symphony orchestras to intimate chamber music settings. Academy conductors work in a friendly, collaborative and focused environment which prepares them for professional conducting careers.
The Academy offers a two-year course of Principal Study Conducting at postgraduate level.
Conducting is offered at undergraduate level in introductory classes to all students and as intermediate and advanced electives for students who wish to pursue it to a high level.
