The Artistry of Teaching and Making Music
by Richard Floyd
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.
