In the morning you will work with our main subject teacher Alex Schillings and a wind band on various repertoire. After lunch Mr Schillings and his students will talk about studying Wind Band Conducting at the Royal Conservatoire. During the afternoon session conducting techniques, non-verbal communication, leadership and much more will be the topics to work on.
