New edition of a text that provides practical hands-on procedures, techniques, guidance, and materials for the beginning conducting class. Labuta, an experienced musician and educator (Wayne State U.), employs a broad repertory of musical excerpts and scores, most of them reduced to four-part format, that enable students to work with an ensemble of class members to practice conducting and rehearsal techniques at each class meeting. Excerpts include orchestral materials, band scores, as well as choral music excerpts, scores, and rehearsal techniques. A new feature is the inclusion of specific instructions identifying problems that must be solved in order to master conducting skills for the selected examples. Wire spiral binding. Annotation c.
