• Audīte

    The effectiveness of a conductor derives primarily from what is seen but this is just one element of a process which has its outcome in what is actually heard. Our Audite projects seek to focus attention on the relationship between ideas about musical concept (inner hearing), the actual sounds produced and the gestural language which forms the connection between them. We do so on the basis the purpose of music is to provide a narrative in sound and therefore that the success of any interpretation must be predicated on the aural experience, not the visual display.

Mastering Time

Like stage magic, conducting is an activity steeped in mystery – many see the results but the complexity of the processes means that it is one of perpetual learning. This series of presentations explores the component tasks, exposes some of the myths, analyses the challenges and examines the principles underlying the connection between gesture and high quality sound.

In the words of one of our past participants: "This is a course for people who want their music to be the best it can possibly be – for the orchestra, for the composer, for the audience and for themselves. This course is about what really works and is taught by someone for whom it really does."
