In Good Hands

The Making of a Modern Conductor

Alice Farnham

Passing the Baton: Conducting in the 21st Century explores the ways in which gender, culture and socio-economic status influence a conductor's language, career, confidence and even their body. 

With her own personal story at the heart, leading conductor Alice Farnham interviews conductors - both men and women - at different stages in their career, looking at what it takes to become a conductor.

Alice has set many women on a path to the profession, and her book gives a particular voice to female conductors, what it takes to succeed, and just what the job entails. This is not a handbook for conducting, though it describes the job to the layman. A book for all music lovers, professional musicians and anyone interested in leadership.
