Extensively refined and updated, this new edition on conducting posits that conducting is atime-space art. It builds basic book techniques and includes additional band scores excerpts, placed in proximity with the classic repertoire. The text adds new baton timing techniques, and shows the relationships of time, speed, and motion. Key words and principles are highlighted in boldface or italics. This book states a new principle regarding gesture-speed as related to dynamics and phrasing. Drills to train the mind and hands simultaneously are presented. Complete diagrams, all time-beating patterns, and logical classification of expressive gestures are included. Offers manual-technique photo illustrations and a wealth of music examples that show the application of techniques. Features an extensive appendix that includes seating charts, language tables (scores), less common terms, and an outline of musical form to aid in score study. For musicians.
