Enrollment is limited so that participants will have generous podium time to conduct duo pianists and a professional string orchestra. An experienced team of instructors will help participants develop and expand their ability to express their artistic visions with gestures.  The workshops have been praisedconsistently as “the finest available anywhere”.  Details and application forms are posted at  http://conductorschool.com/SOA.html

The Saito Conducting Method is based on the analysis of gestures used by outstanding conductors especially those in Europe during the middle of the twentieth century.
