London Conducting Workshop


20-25 July 2014

Our next London Conducting Workshop takes place in the David Josefowitz Hall at the Royal Academy of Music, London.

The workshop fee covers the following:

  • all administration charges

  • tuition

  • certificate of participation

  • Friday night dinner

The fee does not cover travel to London, transport within London, accommodation or food and drink during the course, with the exception of an informal meal on the Friday evening. Participants must provide their own scores. Applications are via the form that is found here on our website, but if you have difficulty downloading it then please let us know and we will send you a copy by email.

A normal day starts at 10.00am and runs through until 5.30pm, occasionally followed by a short session on baton technique, score preparation, or a talk given by an expert in a related musical field. Please note that we will be starting the workshop on Sunday this year so it is important that you plan your arrival for the Saturday 19th July. On the Friday evening we will host an informal evening at a local restaurant. We hope you will all join us to unwind after the week, where you will have the opportunity to ask the tutors some of those questions that have been nagging you over the last few days!


We are also running a one-day Master Class at the Royal Academy of Music, for conductors who are unable to attend for a whole week. Each conductor will have at least one opportunity to conduct our orchestra during that day, and most conductors will be able to conduct two sessions during the day. The repertoire for this day will be Tchaikovsky's String Serenade; any conductor accepted on to this class is also invited to observe the sessions during the preceding week at no additional cost in order to gain as much as possible from their experience. Conductors attending the full week are also invited to observe the Saturday class.

John Farrer and Neil Thomson are the tutors for both London Conducting Workshop courses.
