Essentials in Conducting

by Karl Wilson Gehrkens

In putting out this little book, the author is well aware of the factthat many musicians feel that conductors, like poets and teachers, are"born and not made"; but his experience in training supervisors ofmusic has led him to feel that, although only the elementary phases ofconducting can be taught, such instruction is nevertheless quiteworth while, and is often surprisingly effective in its results. Hehas also come to believe that even the musical genius may profit bythe experience of others and may thus be enabled to do effective workas a conductor more quickly than if he relied wholly upon his nativeability.
