Do You Hear What I Hear?

  • thumbnail for Richard Floyd
  • The breadth and depth of how we listen ultimately determines our effectiveness as a conductor. Thus, all conductors face the challenge of developing discerning listening skills that elevate aural awareness and serve to maximize rehearsal efficiency. With the assistance of the United States Army Band this clinic will focus on the multiple kinds of listening that are critical factors in determining the effectiveness of rehearsals and offer strategies to refine these proficiencies.
