Achieving Clarity Through Definition

Clinic Synopsis:

Achieve musical clarity by defining EVERYTHING-- note lengths, note shapes, pitch tendencies, balance points, specific dynamic measurements, even analytically pacing out the concert cycle. This session will show how, through an organized, methodical approach and a standard set of vocabulary and definitions, your ensemble can achieve musical clarity in performance.
