Version: Textbook, CD Included

This three-volume series is a comprehensive tool for beginning conductors or more experienced conductors who are beginners in choral conducting.

Volume 1 presents fundamental conducting patterns along with numerous practice exercises. Approaches to repertory, programming, score marking, rehearsal strategies, and singing techniques are also introduced. It is a concise guide that offers a wealth of practical information and can stand alone as resource.

The more than thirty printed and recorded selections in Volume 2 complement the exercises in Volume 1. To further enhance study, each is accompanied by a brief note about the composer and the work, a translation of the text, and a short discussion of its conducting issues.

Volume 3 addresses topics that any practicing conductor is likely to face, including working with an orchestra, conducting musicals, the psychology of conducting, and using movement in the choral rehearsal.
