Are you looking to improve and develop your skills as a conductor of orchestras, ensembles or choirs? Or are you interested in conducting and want to know more? Make an appointment and we will get to work!!
My name is Frank Zielhorst and I am a professional conductor of orchestras, ensembles and choirs. I have taught conducting at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague before I decided to move to London. Until September 2016, I held the position of Young Conductor in Association with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and in recent years, I have worked with such orchestras as the Philharmonia Orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Ulster Orchestra, Prague Symphony Orchestra and The Hague Philharmonic Orchestra (Residentie Orkest). Since 1 March 2018 I have the privilege to hold the position of Principal Conductor with Sinfonia Viva.
Music is my world, my oxygen and my daily bread, and I believe that everyone should be able to experience music and be touched by it. My goal in life is to make as beautiful music as possible and to help others do the same.
In our sessions, we will work on basic conducting technique, on developing the cleanest and clearest ways to communicate your intentions to the group in front of you (both verbally and non-verbally). We will discuss score analysis, instrumentation, and psychology of the ensemble.
