PT28: Should I Pursue Band or Orchestral Conducting?

The Podium Time audience has spoken! Luke and I are incorporating shorter discussion episodes into this second season and the listeners (accidentally) decided on the first topic. The question that we’ve been sent the most by our listeners is…drum-roll… whether one should pursue a master’s in band or orchestral conducting! Today, Luke and I sit down to chat through the different options in terms of style, range of groups, and repertoire, as well as how you can get a bit of experience in both.
