Jolyn Rachel TangHi, I've got two questions. I'd like to know how you decide on the scores an orchestra plays, especially the pop concerts. (I'm assuming you have the liberty to do that.) And how does one become a conductor? Thanks. =)

Wandering NessieI'd like to know what exactly a conductor does...on an average day (music-related), one (or two) week(s) before a concert, three days before, on the concert day, on stage, after bump-out... ;-)

Dimpel BhayaniNot a question but just awe that conductors need to know every single note and part an instrument/ musician plays in an orchestra... For 3 hour operas! I guess there is a question... How do you do it? How do you practise when you don't have the orchestra assembled for you everyday.. Or do you?

Ng Hwee Khengbest possible scan outcome, your pic is too big. really hope your supporters can read this at higher visibility. it's a very well written article on the Conducting vocation but briefly what this all means in the music sector. appreciate the sharing on why podium time's limitations made it hard for more student conductors to be trained. Brunei has no formal orchestra but a few intl schools such as Jerudong Intl sch orchestra has performed for royal dignitaries such as Prince Charles. can do some training conducting/performing there?Package and go get your endorsement deal with 100plus or some fancy watch etc to raise more private funding to do more! Best of wishes for 16/17 to come.
