Learning how to rehearse is a crucial step for anyone desiring to become a conductor. This panel discussion, ‘Planning & Executing the Rehearsals’ presents ideas about preparing and leading rehearsals with band, orchestra and choral conducting. Through this discussion, we identify the similarities and differences between band, orchestra and choir conducting, introduce steps to prepare before rehearsal and pinpoint common mistakes that all amateur conductors make while rehearsing. Panelists will discuss and bring these topics forward.
