Composers' Collective: Conducting Crash Course

Part of Composers' Collective

Bring your baton for this crash course in conducting with Maestra Karin Hendrickson.

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?

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.

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.
