47: Prepping for Rehearsals

Welcome to the Conductor’s Podcast Summer Mini Series!

During the month of July, we are taking a break from the usual interview conversations. Instead, I will be sharing some tips on different aspects of a conductor’s job with you every week.

In today’s episode, I will be talking about prepping for rehearsals.

For me, the most important principal about rehearsal, is to HAVE A PLAN, BUT BE FLEXIBLE!

What are the rehearsal goals?

  • Long term vs short term goals
  • What can your players retain between rehearsals?
  • What will get better over time?
  • WHO needs the run-through?

In the episode, I will also share my rehearsal planning, considerations, and ways to sharpen your rehearsal techniques.
