Artistry of Teaching and Making Music


In the context of an ensemble rehearsal, where does real music making begin? How can we also infuse our rehearsals with artistry in order to create deep connections for our students, beyond the correct rhythms, in-tune notes, and proper technique? How can we teach students to ultimately think for themselves? With more than fifty years of experience, Richard Floyd is a highly distinguished teacher and conductor in Texas and across the United States. Over the years, he kept a journal to document rehearsal strategies that not only improve technique within the ensemble but also achieve artistic, musical results. The book is a look into the precious pages of Floyd’s journal. Each chapter contains inspiration for the conductor and simple, unique exercises designed to achieve artistry in every rehearsal. The Artistry of Teaching and Making Music is a book to revisit each summer before the school year begins and as a reference before each rehearsal. It will be a priceless addition to your personal library.
