CONDUCTING LESSONS PROGRAM
Conducting lessons begin a life-long journey of building a physical language that communicates well-formed musical ideas. In lessons, students will focus on the fundamentals of technique such as executing beat patterns, cueing musicians, and expressing articulation. They will also learn about the creative process of imagining the sounds they want to hear from an ensemble. Conducting is all about collaboration, so the building blocks students gain in their study will not only help them lead a group, but will also give them valuable insights they will use in guiding musical projects, playing in ensembles, and composing for fellow musicians in the future.
