Conductors Academy

The Conductor’s Academy was formed in 2009 with the support and encouragement of the legendary Russian maestro, Yuri Simonov to further develop and disseminate knowledge about the development of the highest levels of conducting skills.

Projects have included masterclasses in the UK, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Estonia and Brazil, with students from every part of the world. Through online interaction the reach has extended to many thousands of people.

In 2017 the 1st Audite International Competition was a world first: a conducting competition with screened jury and judgement on the basis of sound. The idea was to help clarify that skilled conducting is not merely visible but also clearly audible.
