Student Conductor Clinic

July 17th - 19th

CLINIC

Information

The Student Conductor Clinic has been designed to serve high school and college students that want to further their conducting study. The curriculum is strongly rooted in formal conducting with opportunities to conduct a lab band, gain valuable rehearsal techniques, as well as phenomenal leadership experiences.

 

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.

Score Study

Student conductors will receive individual assistance with personal scores and recordings to prepare them for the upcoming season.

Collaboration

Students will walk away with a better understanding of working with their band directos. A group setting encourages learning from others along with self reflection and improvement skills.
