MUSIC TEACHER AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE

 

This book is a practical guide to setting up a choral or instrumental ensemble and running it effectively. Build an exciting and creative group dynamic through performing together, based on the insights of a number of experienced musical directors. Advice is given on choosing repertoire, rehearsal techniques, conducting, arranging, and practical aspects such as venues, publicity, and how to achieve a successful final performance.

 

Both a step-by-step ‘how to’ book, and a comprehensive reference resource, How To Create a Successful Music Ensemble features the insights of several experienced musical directors and also covers topics like practicalities, publicity and conducting techniques.

With illuminating real-life case studies throughout, this is the ultimate guide to every practical and artistic aspect of creating and maintaining one of music’s most rewarding collaborative forms.

 

This is a brilliant book for anyone who is looking to start up or already directs an ensemble.

Kate Brown, Ensemble magazine Summer 2013
