The New York Conducting Studio
The New York Conducting Studio was established in 1992, an outgrowth of Mr. Fagin serving as assistant to Otto-Werner Mueller, preparing students for his conducting programs at The Juilliard School and The Curtis Institute.
The Studio offers private, one-on-one instruction in baton technique; score reading; score preparation; orchestration, composition and audition preparation, as well as a weekly conducting class.
Many participants seek instruction to sharpen their skills in one or two specific disciplines. Others seek more comprehensive training, including study of the evolution of the orchestra and of the classical orchestral repertoire of the 19th and 19th centuries.
Current and former students include symphony and choral conductors; Broadway musical directors and conductors; commercial arrangers; professional instrumentalists and conservatory students. Most students request weekly private lessons; some prefer to meet privately twice a week; others in the weekly class or when their schedules permit.
