Item Description...
Overview
Music direction is a multifacted craft. And no skill is more important than the actual physical skills involved in acting as conductor during the rehearsal and performance. Sandra Willetts explains what is involved, including basic conducting patterns and techniques.

Publishers Description
Conducting is a multifaceted craft that includes ear training, vocal, training, conducting techniques, rehearsal techniques, performance practice, music theory, and music history--not to mention basic leadership and group dynamics. It can also be an art that will consume a lifetime of study and practice. Many people have skills in some of these areas, but it is the rare person who has mastered every facet of this complex craft. The scope of this book is to address only the physical skills, the one area that most people can master relatively quickly, regardless of their skill level in other areas. * Written for new directors or the director wanting more training * Contains illustrations and diagrams to covey key concepts * Written by one of America's most respected choral conducting instructors * Will help music leaders become more comfortable with this difficult area of music leadership * Will give directors a higher level of confidence with their church choir Maket *Church choir directors * Music directors

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Down Beat Up Beat and not much else  Aug 20, 2006
I bought this book because it was written by same author who wrote "Beyond the Downbeat." I thought DB/ UB was sort of prerequisite to BTD. It was not. I would not say it was money well spent.
 
Only covers beat patterns  Sep 7, 2004
If you want to know every beat pattern, this is the book for you. I was looking for a more in-depth look at cueing, cut-offs, how to use both hands. I found it slightly helpful but covered very very little. I read the entire book in 9 minutes.
