Quick Overview

Conducting the Music, Not the Musicians is the first conductor training text to put the primary emphasis on musical expression as it introduces basic technique through the concept of phrase conducting. Among many unique features it examines cueing within the beat pattern in greater detail than is usual in beginning conducting texts. The examples and exercises (drawn from both the vocal/choral and instrumental repertoires), progress to guided practice chorales and etudes and finally to full score rehearsal and guided performance. Jerry and Henry Nowak have produced a groundbreaking book that will help novice conductors solve technical problems, with musical solutions.
