This introduction to conducting method, appropriate for vocal and instrumental conducting students, is organized to establish essential conducting skills in a developmental sequence. The book contains thirty content lessons, guided practice outlines, ten videotaping sessions with evaluation forms for each taped session, assignments at the end of each lesson, illustrations with photos and conducting diagrams, as well as numerous choral and instrumental musical examples for directed conducting practice. Concentrating on the basics, this text emphasizes the development of the psychomotor skills needed for clear and expressive conducting.
