At its very essence, conducting is non-verbal communication. This begs the question: If body language comes into play, what does your conducting really say? This session will examine recent research to help church musicians to be more effective communicators through their conducting gesture in order to convey their musical intent better and to help their ensembles sing and play their very best to the Lord’s praise.
