I have now really started to delve deep into the textbook, which now has gone over all the basic techniques for conducting, such as what each hand is used for, how to conduct in different meters, and how to balance the different techniques all at once. I did not realize before that there are many ways to beat patterns that have more than four beats. I have also been working a lot on one of Mozart’s most famous works, Symphony No. 40. I will soon be making a post on the Prague Symphony (No. 38), which shows a more contrapuntal side to Mozart. Hopefully, I can meet with the Jordan High School’s theater teacher, Mrs. Bellido, about their musical. I wish I can say that my work was more extensive, but instead, it was very focused on those things. Let’s see what this week has in store!
