James Jordan, pre-eminent conductor, writer, and innovator in choral music, has devoted his career to compelling educational change in the choral art. His desire to provide a global curriculum that addresses every aspect of excellence in music making led him to develop Evoking Sound.
In this book, Jordan adapts Lewis’s love of powerful and effective metaphors. Jordan uses metaphors as a guide to help conductors engage the most profound the concepts of artistry in music, concepts that are often elusive to teach or learn. These metaphors can be effective doorways to understand our role as artist teacher/conductors in new and vibrant ways.
