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.
