Master in Symphonic, Instrumental and Vocal Conducting – MDO

A comprehensive immersion plan in the professional reality of orchestral conducting


The profession of orchestra conductor requires multiple skills that have to be developed independently and together for the mastery of their professional activity. The syllabus focuses on the different fields that make up the working reality of the 21st century, seeking comprehensive and multidisciplinary training that is increasingly required in the figure of the conductor. Students access each of the fields of study independently and combine the knowledge acquired in real practice with orchestras and ensembles.

Internationally renowned professionals and specialists come together in a highly ambitious programme that aims to transport students into the real and professional world of management and prepare them to face the many challenges it entails.
