A skilled conducting technique is the best business card of a professional conductor. Many masterclasses, often due to time limitations, do not offer enough in-depth advice to participants who would like to improve their gestural communication with the orchestra members.

Due to the unique facilites we can offer in south-eastern Spain, we would like to invite you to have private sessions with Achim Holub at your own convenience.

The classes will be accompanied by a highly accomplished pianist who is professor at one of the Escuelas Superiores de Musica in Madrid.

Achim will explain his views on conducting technique, tailored to your level of experience with many exercises, and discuss the best ways of how to communicate your ideas to a group of musicians.

Altea is one of the most beautiful towns at the Mediterranean coast, with many superb restaurants and highly original shops.
