Specialist postgraduate programmes in conducting at RWCMD range from orchestral conducting to choral direction and brass band conducting.


Orchestral conductors benefit from in-house rehearsal and performance opportunities with various College ensembles including the RWCMD Symphony Orchestra under the guidance of the College’s Conductor in Residence, David Jones.

The MA in Brass Band Conducting programme is led by Dr Robert Childs, one of the most recognised and accomplished figures in the field and former director of the Cory Band, which is the College’s Brass Band in Residence.
