Hands on

Conducting students will have the opportunity to conduct in a live band setting where they will get in-the-moment feedback from an ensemble. 

Become yourself

SWC encourages individuality and creativity. Develop confidence in your own personal style and showmanship on the podium.

CURRICULUM

 

Conducting

New and returning students will receive semi-private lessons with collegiate music educators along with the opportunity to conduct in front of a live ensemble. Video feedback is used for self-analysis of conducting and progress.
