IN THIS ISSUE:
This Rehearsal is Available to You in High Definition
"If you want the opportunity to work with better players,
make the players you have better."
What is a High Definition Rehearsal?
In a highly defined rehearsal, the score comes to live as a multi-dimensional entity and each student is made aware of his or her role in the musical dialogue. It is said that the greatest actors in the world are the ones who are best at listening and reacting to what they hear and feel. Our students need to be made aware that the most valuable tool they bring to every rehearsal and performance is their ability to listen to what is happening around them at all times and the ability to react accordingly.
Why? Because while in a professional musical organization, we rehearse because we perform, but in a school-based musical organization, we perform because we rehearse! The rehearsal is NOT a means to an end.
Elements of a Highly Defined Rehearsal Include:
Conducting is NOT 'Acting,' But...
There are many commonalities between "movie stars" and "less than great" conductors.
