The Ultimate One-Year Practical Experience for the Modern Conductor

Conservatories and Universities around the world notoriously offer their conducting candidates a limited conducting curriculum, sometimes including intermittent rehearsals with their student orchestras.

We take an entirely different approach.

We've teamed up with the Vratsa Symphony Orchestra and are providing all of our conducting candidates 30 minutes of podium time with a professional orchestra every week. Plus, we've created the most comprehensive MFA degree program for the modern conductor offered by any University in the world.
