Continuous professional development in one’s personal field of expertise is becoming increasingly valuable. Moreover, a basic qualification in music is not guaranteed to see one though one’s entire professional career. It can be of help to seek further training from highly qualified teachers from time to time. This certificated programme is aimed at people seeking further training in the field of conducting.
Experienced, highly qualified choral conductors who are active in the international concert scene and lecture at the Lucerne School of Music take participants under their wing on an individual basis and guide them towards a successful qualification on the certificated programme.
