Orchestral Conducting Masterclass with Augustina Kapoti at International Portoheli Festival
Augustina is actively involved in teaching conducting herself and in 2021 she was invited by the International Portoheli Festival and Dr Grigorios Zamparas to found the Orchestral Conducting Masterclass and teach undergraduates from the University Tampa  USA as well as students from around the world.

From the very first time Ms Kapoti struck me as a very passionate teacher who brings a fresh and precise pedagogical approach to her teaching. In the Orchestral Conducting Masterclass she taught, it was obvious that she very quickly adjusted to the needs of each student creating a very supportive atmosphere and a safe environment for the students to learn’.
