The masterclass is directed to conductors who want to increase their musical experience and work as professionals in the world of classical music thanks to a wide repertoire and to the presence of a full professional orchestra.

The course is articulated in n°6 (six) days of lesson. The lessons with the orchestra will be recorded and at the end of the day the students will discuss with the teacher about their performance with the help of the recording.
The recording will be given to the students in digital format (micro SD memory cards) at the end of the course.

Only 12 active students are admitted; each student will have not less than 90 minutes of podium time.

The huge amount of podium time in front of a full symphony orchestra is intended to offer to the students a real opportunity to practice a wide repertoire, under the wise guidance of a very experienced teacher like M° Gokmen, whose students are already working in some of the most important institutions around the world.
