Feedback from past participants.

“I enjoyed the engagement present with a guitar ensemble and the conductor. It made the visual presentation on how to conduct more vivid and clear since the improvements to make were pointed out explicitly. The facilitators were friendly and extremely helpful, learnt tremendously on conducting techniques.” – Janice Low, Tampines Junior College

“The hands-on conducting practice is very useful in pointing out techniques, I learnt a lot through that. Dr. Casteel’s guidance on the conducting practice is very clear and knowledgeable.” – Lee King Yeung, River Valley High School

“I love the student conductor’s conducting session. It kind of allowed us to see that everyone has different styles of conducting. It helped me by giving me basic knowledge about conducting.” – Veronica Lee, Evergreen Secondary School
