Upper Middle/Secondary

The teacher-conductors we most admire seem to create magic with their ensembles, no matter the performance level of their group, the context they are working in, or the repertoire they are playing. While there are many effective ways of achieving such consistent and spellbinding outcomes, the overall process always entails a cycle of thorough preparation, efficient and inspiring communication, and the ability to draw the best from the musicians in an ensemble. This core session will encompass ideas for improving personal preparation, communicating with ensembles, and leading performances.
