Conducting

So what’s the big deal about conducting?

I’ve always felt that the technique was secondary to attitude-

a conductor is giving a performance-for the orchestra

a conductor is the focal point of the orchestra

confidence breeds a good performance-uncertainty will bring the opposite

be clear and consistent with the information you give your players- they will rely upon you to always be there when they have a question-while playing or rehearsing

basic technique will get you by in most circumstances but without a confident attitude it really doesn’t matter how much technique you have.

You are their leader….act like one.
