|COURSE OBJECTIVES:||The art of conducting is a skill that epitomizes the powerful communication of musical concepts to others through the use of silent gestures. This course is designed to equip students with a foundation of basic conducting skills and to explore more advanced conducting techniques. Other facets of conducting, including score study and interpretation, rehearsal technique and programming will be included. Understanding that conducting technique is akin to playing a musicalinstrument, a daily routine of conducting practice will be established by each student.|
