Conductors for Change
Conductors for Change gives music leaders the tools, strategies and practical conducting techniques to set up a new instrumental ensemble, or develop an existing one. Created by a team of highly experienced music directors and educators this flexible programme of hands-on training is rooted in inclusive practice.
Drawing on expertise in mixed-ability inclusive orchestral practice developed and demonstrated though our National Orchestra for All and Modulo Programme, CFC includes a series of online units covering a range of areas of music leadership:
arranging for mixed-ability ensembles
leading effective and inclusive rehearsals
large group improvisation
The online training will be launched in early 2019. Click here to sign up to our Expression of Interest form and be the first to hear about the training once it goes live!
You will work with a mixed-ability, school orchestra for a day to develop conducting and rehearsing skills in a real musical setting. Conducting Days will be led by our team of expert conductors and music educators who will provide expert guidance and tuition in a series of conducting workshops focusing on the key aspects of conducting a mixed-ability instrumental ensemble. The number of participants is limited so that each receives plenty of opportunity for conducting practice and personalised feedback.
We are delighted to announce the dates for our new hands-on music leadership training events to be held in the Midlands, South West, Yorkshire and London. As a crucial part of our new blended learning programme in music leadership, these face-to-face training days will give music teachers and leaders the opportunity to work with a mixed-ability youth orchestra for a day to help develop fundamental conducting skills. Confirmed Conducting Days for 2019 are as follows:
