Failsafe Fixes For Frequently Frustrating Flaws

  • thumbnail for Richard Floyd
  • Some 5 years ago I began keeping a journal of effective rehearsal strategies dealing with all facets of rehearsing and making music that seemed to always work. That was the genesis of Failsafe Fixes. The format of the clinic is a rapid-fire presentation of specific fixes for a broad array of specific performance challenges. High energy and non-stop. The goal being to share between 50 and 60 concise rehearsal tactics that a director can place in his or her toolbox for immediate application.
