My Teachers Part 10: The Choral Experience
I also wanted to take a choral conducting course while in the Sibelius Academy, since in my opinion you really need to try your hand on this instrument if you want to conduct opera. Choral singers have a totally different mind-set than the orchestral players and thus you need a different set of tools if you are to make the best out of them. In the video clip above you can see my teacher Matti Hyökki. I also participated in the Sibelius Academy chamber choir under the firm hands of Timo Nuoranne.
