Overview

The Fifth Edition of Basic Conducting Techniques provides sound, practical, hands-on procedures, techniques, guidance, and materials for the beginning conducting class. Joseph A. Labuta, an experienced musician and educator, employs a broad repertory of musical excerpts and scores, most reduced to four-part format, which enables students to work with an ensemble of class members to practice conducting and rehearsal techniques at each class meeting.

Features:

  • Along with each carefully selected example from music literature are specific instructions keyed to the text, identifying conducting problems the student must master to develop conducting skills.
  • Excerpts include orchestral materials, band scores, as well as choral music excerpts, choral scores, and choral rehearsal techniques.
  • Modular format for self-paced learning; provisions for ongoing student evaluation, including rating scales, checklists, and analytical guides.
  • Alternate approaches for use of the materials provided to the instructor.
