The Art of Communication

Wayne Bailey

Conducting: The Art of Communication provides the most comprehensive treatment available of all aspects of instrumental conducting: technical, analytical, and expressive. Extending beyond the strictly technical coverage of other books, this unique text can be used in both one-semester courses and in two-semester sequences that include advanced topics. Author Wayne Bailey has taught conducting classes for more than twenty-five years; he offers students unparalleled coverage of the art of conducting, advanced techniques, score study for rehearsal and performance, and error recognition and correction. In addition, the text offers a diverse range of flexible and practical instrumentation exercises. These brief and innovative exercises combine standard literature with exercises prepared by the author to address specific conducting problems within a short time span (6-12 measures of music), thereby maximizing the podium practice time for every student in the conducting classroom. In addition, the exercises are available on a CD--in the music notation program Finale--to adopting instructors. Instructors can manipulate and print the exercises to make custom orchestrations for their courses.
