Wind/Brass Band Conducting

Choosing to study Band Conducting at Conservatorium Maastricht means choosing to spend an intensive period developing your individual talent. The supporting curriculum aids this development and gradually adds challenges: Brass Band, Wind Band and Fanfare Band conducting, leading rehearsals in orchestral projects, conducting practice in front of several orchestras. The combination of individual attention amid an international class and a curriculum with substance will inspire you to achieve your full potential.

In the Bachelor’s programme, you will focus on conducting technique, knowledge of instruments, rehearsal technique and conducting ensembles.
In the Master’s programme, you will focus on gaining practical experience in front of amateur and professional orchestras.
