The Middle School Conductor: Reinforcing Fundamentals Through Purposeful, Intentional Gesture
Clinician(s): Dr. Erin Bodnar
The aim of this hands-on session is to bring awareness to the influence of the middle school teacher’s conducting in reinforcing the teaching of fundamentals. The session will examine the effect of posture, horizontal gestures, breathing, musical releases, and much more on creating a better sound from your ensemble. Participants will practice a variety of gestures that will aid their current teaching and will leave the session with tangible strategies for improving the sound of their ensembles through gesture.
