"The workshop is still one of the greatest life changing moments in my career!"     - Dr. Scott MacLennan

"I had the most amazing time this week at the International Saito Conducting Workshop! I learned SO much that I will continue to use everyday in my conducting life. I'm so grateful to Wayne Toews Sensei for his high degree of expertise and warm supportive approach to teaching. He is a true Maestro!" - Dr. Dominic Gregorio

"This workshop was a life-changing experience. The combination of a clear, concise methodology and sequential pedagogy coupled with a vocabulary of gestures make the Saito method superior. Mr. Toews is a gifted musician and teacher and the entire experience was incredible." -- Dr. Philip Baldwin

Hideo Saito's analysis of conducting gestures provides the key to conducting with precision and artistry. In particular. his discovery of the secondary point and identification of From-point gestures are not taught elsewhere. Join the community of conductors who have used these ideas at the highest level.

This is a first-rate conducting workshop provided at an affordable price.  The devaluation of the Canadian dollar has made it even more affordable for those coming from outside Canada!

This is a project of the Saskatchewan Orchestral Association with funding from:
