Expressive Conducting - Making the Investment in Your Students and Your Rehearsals

  • thumbnail for Craig Kirchhoff
  • This clinic will reveal how expressive conducting translates directly to effective rehearsal techniques and enhanced music making with ensembles of any level. The guiding philosophical principal is that conducting is a “listening” art and that what we hear guides our conducting. The session will present practical and effective strategies for teachers to add to their conducting vocabulary, to share with their students, and to immediately employ in their rehearsals.
