WOMEN CONDUCTORS WORKSHOP 

In association with the Royal Philharmonic Society
Four Full Scholarships available

Led by acclaimed conductor Alice Farnham and run by the Royal Philharmonic Society, this Phase 1 Women Conductors workshop is aimed at encouraging female music students aged 16 and over, who want to become professional musicians or music teachers, to pick up the baton and take to the conductor's podium, mostly for the first time. Over two days, the participants will get the chance to work with pianists, instrumental ensembles, and a stagecraft and body language coach on the conductor’s podium, receiving individual guidance and feedback from the workshop leaders. The workshop is ideal for those who have never considered conducting and want to give it a try, as well as those with some conducting experience who would like to reaffirm these skills.
