B-course: conducting wind orchestras (Academy phase 4)

 

Conducting wind orchestras and training young wind players


The part-time course extends over a period of 15 months. This time is divided into six academy phases and five intermediate practical phases. The academic and practical phases form a whole, the parts of which are systematically related to one another. The contents imparted in the academy phases are tested in the practical phases and supplemented and deepened by written work and practical exercises. Therefore no academy phases can be skipped. Continuous participation is a prerequisite for participation and for completing the course.

Each academy phase comprises approximately 36 lessons. Depending on previous knowledge, the time required to master the theoretical and practical tasks requires around 600 working hours in the practical phases.
At the end of the first week of the course (orientation phase), both the participants and the Federal Academy can decide whether to continue with the course.
