    Default Conducting subforum

    The creme de la creme of classical music? The centerpoint of everything you know about classical theory, your humane insights into musical soul focused together in your body trying to convey it along with the theory you yap about to your musicians?

    Subforum please.

    This is an interesting idea indeed, but before making a sub forum we will have to gauge the level of interest amongst the users and try to estimate how much activity there would be in such a forum.

    I'm guessing not much, as there are not a lot of conductors as opposed to a lot of instrumentists. But it might be interesting to start up something and maybe it'll gain momentum along the way.

    Agreed. I think some of us do like to wave our hands furiously while listening to certain pieces, so it would be nice to read something about proper ways to do this

    it's basics -
    if your downbeat and cut off isn't clear bad things happen.

    there are 'showtime' conductors who, i'm convinced, the players need to watch as little as possible , and there are 'minimalist conductors' who are difficult to watch as a player.
    however...with suffcient rehearsal time you get used to anyone...almost!

    I saw on TV a conductors work shop where the "hopefuls" were instructed to conduct with their hands in pockets and use eyes only, I can't remember who the numero uno was

    Meh, conducting... most of the work done is on the rehearals. On the concert, you start em, you give them leads and you stop them.

    Ha, that came up in my first conducting lesson aswell. "Rasa, you have the facial expression of a marble pillar, let's work on those looks"

    As many of you know, I've held an interest in conducting for a good bit over a year now (I think more like a year and a half). So I think a conducting subforum would be quite helpful and educational to people like me as well as others who just want a look at it, to learn a bit. Something like that.

    I've conducted my own works from time to time in the past. It's something that's becoming increasingly important to me, so yeah, I'm definitely interested in it as an area of discussion.

    It would be especially cool because it's so hard to find people who are actually knowledgeable about the subject. It's such a little club that the internet might be a nice place to find people who are doing the same thing.

    I support this idea because I am definitely interested in learning about conducting. I hope to conduct music in the near future.
