The Texas Conducting Workshop will be held at the University of Texas at Arlington and is meant to foster the development of conducting and teaching skills for orchestra directors of all levels. Up to twenty conductors will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. An unlimited number of auditing positions are also available.
TCW is designed to help professional teachers improve their conducting skills so they can become even more expressive, effective educators. We also welcome student conductors and aspiring teachers to register so they can study conducting on an advanced level, further preparing them for the challenges they will face in the classroom.
The UT Arlington string faculty will serve as principals of their respective sections in the masterclass orchestra. All participants who feel comfortable with the level of the literature being played are encouraged to perform in the orchestra that will serve as the ensemble for the masterclass sessions.
There will be a number of presentations and technique classes on other related topics, including Score Study, Right and Left Hand Independence, Rehearsal Techniques, etc.
