Conducting and Teaching: Empowering Student Musicianship

  • thumbnail for Matthew McInturf
  • We are always inspired when we hear students perform with passion and artistry. How do we connect performing on the podium and teaching in the classroom? How do empower our students for engage with music in a way the ignites their passion, unites it with understanding and produces genuine artistry? Understanding our roles as both musician (conductor and performer) and teacher (mentor and guide) will help our students to think more creatively about music making and performing.
