Develop Kinclusive Conducting Awareness

Learn Conducting Technique with the Swiss Exercise Ball

James Jordan

 

"There is no doubt in my mind about the pedagogical potency of the use of the Swiss Ball for conducting study. This simple device transfers responsibility for teaching from heretofore-used verbal explanations to a new world of instruction that uses body awareness as the primary vehicle."

  — James Jordan
Learn Conducting Technique
with the Swiss Exercise Ball

Traditional conducting methods rely on how conductors look—not how they feel. James Jordan's groundbreaking Learn Conducting Technique with the Swiss Exercise Ball takes the study of conducting beyond the mechanics to a higher plane.

Using the Swiss Exercise Ball, everyone from the most experienced conductor to the beginner can tie into a state of awareness that opens the door to increased musical expression and kinesthetic awareness. With the aid of a Swiss Exercise Ball and the Body Mapping techniques described in this book, conductors can reach a new level of artistic expression and mastery.

James Jordan, Associate Professor of Conducting at Westminster Choir College, has served as conductor of the Westminster Chapel Choir of Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, New Jersey, for more than a decade. He is conductor of the select Westminster Williamson Voices and is recognized as one of the nation's preeminent conductors, writers, and innovators in choral teaching.
