Conducting Choirs Vol 1 - The Promising Conductor



The Right Hand

Two Hands

Repertory and Programming

The Score and the Rehearsal

Singers and Choirs


Intended for beginning conductors, this volume offers a conceptual approach to conducting rather than an imitative one. Students begin by building right-hand and then left-hand gestures and are provided with exercises designed to increase independence and expressiveness. Approaches to repertory and programming are also introduced, as are score marking, rehearsal strategies and preparation, and singing technique. In total, it is a concise guide that offers a wealth of practical information and stands alone as a resource for even part-time choir directors.
