From the Author:

Becoming a Wind Band/Ensemble Conductor contains no conducting patterns or suggestions on how to conduct excerpts and/or any piece of music. There are numerous conducting books available that provide this kind of information. Instead, Becoming a Wind Band/Ensemble Conductor focuses on the tools, skills, and responsibilities needed by a conductor-teacher.

It has been said that there are two kinds of conductors: "One handles traffic, the other makes music." I hope that what is contained in this book proves helpful in developing conductors who can do both, "make music and handle traffic."
