Spending time studying with Sasha Mäkilä has been the most rewarding learning experience of my conducting career. He not only gave me new tools to use when in front of the orchestra but an open and honest dialogue about the ins and outs of being a leader from the podium. Sasha Mäkilä is a true conducting pedagogue and musician that every conductor, young and old, should spend time studying with.
