Students will discuss the motivational and psychological benefits of group music making and will develop the skills necessary to effectively direct rehearsals in a professional manner. Students will learn how to develop specific ensemble performance skills, such as intonation, balance, tone production and rhythmic security. Studies in class will be further supported by observing, and assisting where appropriate, ensemble and choral rehearsals in the Conservatorium and in the profession.
