The Beat Stops Here

Lessons on and off the Podium for Today's Conductor

Mark Gibson

  • Challenges common pedagogical models with an alternative approach to the practice of conducting
  • Introduces original metaphors to communicate the physical practice of conducting, such as "brushing the dog" and "tossing the pasta"
  • Discusses important works in bar-by-bar detail, with rigorous score analysis leading to gestural interpretation
  • Candidly addresses the conductor's unique relationships to orchestra, chorus, opera singer, board member, etc.
