Melbourne Youth Chorale (MYC) has initiated a Junior Conducting Program to cultivate the next generation of musical leaders. This program aims to provide young musicians with invaluable skills in conducting, fostering their passion for music and developing their leadership abilities, while being provided mentorship, guidance, and support. By offering this opportunity, MYC seeks to nurture a deep appreciation for choral music among young individuals while empowering them to take on active roles within the MYC community. MYC is growing and we envisage numerous opportunities for new choirs to be formed in the future, providing our Junior Conductors with various platforms for leadership and direction.

The Junior Conducting Program endeavours to instil leadership qualities in young musicians, teaching them to inspire and guide their peers through the medium of music. By taking on the role of a conductor, participants learn important skills such as communication, teamwork, and decision-making, which are invaluable in various aspects of life beyond the realm of music
