Without experience, it’s almost impossible to learn how to direct a band, count off tunes or create on-the-bandstand arrangements. In this class, students learn the essentials of band-leading and ensemble playing: listening, interaction and collaboration. Please bring 2 or 3 songs to work on during the 4-week session. The instructor will also suggest repertoire. Prerequisites: Some performance experience.
Thursdays 8:15 – 9:45 pm
