Michael Votta, Andrea Brown, Craig Potter

Hosted by the UMD Band Faculty and guest clinicians, this experience is specifically geared toward middle school and high school band conductors who seek to develop their rehearsal technique, score study and gestural communication in a non-competitive environment. First-time conducting workshop attendees are particularly welcome.
The workshop will include conducting workshop masterclasses as well as "classroom" sessions on conducting technique, score study, rehearsal techniques, repertoire selection, and programming. The focus is on providing techniques and strategies that can immediately be used in the classroom.
Conductor participant: $300
Registration will open in mid-March 2020.
