Like stage magic, conducting is an activity steeped in mystery – many see the results but only a few understand the process. Directed by Jonathan Brett, Mastering Time is a three-part workshop which exposes some of the myths and explains the real processes involved, as well as introducing the practical skills needed to put this knowledge into effective practice.
The class is ideal for those with some conducting experience looking to develop their skills but equally accessible for those seeking to gain initial insight into this fascinating art. The level of participation can be varied to suit everyone, from those who wish only to observe to those who wish to actively develop practical skills.
Mastering Time was first produced in 2016 in collaboration with the Reid School of Music at Edinburgh University and gained extremely positive feedback – key survey results are listed below.
