Sasha Mäkilä Conducting Masterclass
Pärnu, Estonia 16-20, 2015
My next conducting masterclass will take place in Pärnu, Estonia. The dates are November 16-20 and the active participants will work with the Pärnu City Orchestra. Every participant will enjoy a total of 80 minutes of podium time with the orchestra, plus the final concert.
Studying with Sasha Mäkilä is the best thing I could've done to help my development as a conductor. He has inspired me to think of the different colors of the orchestra, and how I can encourage the musicians, both through interaction and technique, to showcase the music. Sasha Mäkilä makes himself relatable to his students so that he creates an environment of good communication, creativity, and learning.
