ovement is at the core of conducting and Rudolf Laban (1879-1958) is considered perhaps the most influential scholar of human movement. His ideas have shaped the practice of dancers for generations but are significantly less known among conductors. This concise book is a thoughtful and practical introduction to Laban’s life and theories, perfect for conductors seeking to better connect their understanding of a musical score to their actions on the podium.

Author Lisa A. Billingham includes sections devoted to · A brief history of Laban · A series of practical movement exercises for the body · Developing stylistic artistry through creative movement · Laban's techniques for exploring space · Explaining body movement potential · Relating conducting movements to musical expression

Dr. Billingham also designs a kinesthetic toolbox to further enable conductors at all levels to bring the most meaning to their musical expression.The joy of movement in conducting stems from the critical role conductors have in molding and shaping the sound of their ensembles. The book gives conductors a new a new vocabulary and palette for their work!
