*Matt Klohs did a fantastic job with our workshop - I was so pleased to watch him work with our girls in such an age appropriate and musically engaging way. I was disappointed when the bell rang - I could have watched him work with our girls all day! - Paul De Cinque
*To have two passionate and compassionate mentors guide and advise my development has been invaluable.
*Thank you both for your passion, willingness to share your knowledge and genuine desire to help us grow. Also celebrating our successes over the weekend – it really builds confidence.
*A highly valuable weekend with two compassionate and passionate maestros. I built skills and confidence through podium sessions and observations over the weekend in a safe and nurturing environment.
*I appreciate greatly the approach that treats everyone with kindness and fairness but also realism.
*Matt and Kevin provided a wide-ranging overview of how to grow and develop as a conductor. Their methodologies were effective and valuable.
*Your positivity and facilitating of a safe environment was fantastic.
*A safe and positive workshop to grow and learn with your conducting colleagues under the leadership of some of Australia’s finest maestros.
*Honestly I’ve loved all of it. Your approach to conducting is amazing and I’ve always felt safe even when being challenged with something new/different.
*The Maestros With a Mission Conductor intensive was a hugely informative and rewarding experience for me.
*This would be an experience I would recommend to conductors both starting out and those wishing to extend and challenge themselves. Great clinicians, fantastic material, and an inspiring way to encourage further pursuit of the ‘magic’ that is conducting.
*The Conductor Intensive provided me with not only the technical aspects of HOW to conduct but a more holistic approach to WHY we conduct. I now have more of an understanding of the skills required to not just improve myself but also my band.
*Just continue being the kind, supportive people that you are.
* I learned so much more about conducting than I thought was available to learn.
*The best thing you can do to improve the standards of your ensemble is to enrol into the next Maestros With a Mission course.
*The Conductor Intensive workshop was exactly that – intense! The presenters – Matt and Kevin – were inspiring, knowledgeable, fun, insightful and most importantly respectful of all conductors and their personal experiences and prior knowledge. This was an amazing opportunity and experience that I would highly recommend and definitely attend again!
