Teaching / Masterclasses

Damian has a wealth of teaching experience, giving masterclasses in conservatoires worldwide as well as teaching privately. In this very unusual period, Damian offers private online tuition and guidance to aspiring young conductors using the major video conference platforms.

Nothing will ever replace the experience of standing in front of an orchestra and feeling how the musicians react to your gesture. However, (especially during this unusual time!), in an online class or one-to-one setting, it is possible to concentrate on many aspects of conducting:

  • conducting technique
  • score preparation
  • interpretative choices
  • rehearsal technique
  • professional and career mentorship

Damian Iorio’s conducting technique is based on the teaching of the great pedagogue Ilya Musin, with whom he studied in St Petersburg. Through his experience of conducting orchestras from youth level up to the world’s most important orchestras, he has developed an understanding of how to adapt to the challenges of conducting on different levels.

Lessons can be given in English, Russian and Italian.
