Students are required to know their scores thoroughly for each session.

Please note that London Conducting Academy is not an accredited qualification so we are unable to provide student visas. Students must already have permission to study in the UK. 

• Places are in high demand and regular attendance is critical to the nature of the course. If a student is absent without 48 hours notice on three occasions their place may be withdrawn. We are not able to refund course fees in these circumstances. 

Please contact us if you have any questions.
