Building upon a classic conducting book, this edition updates references and expands sections to provide more comprehensive explanations of concepts. It emphasizes the motto “Clarity of intent, not just clarity of beat,” in various contexts throughout the book—suggesting that a technical approach should be complimented with musical insight and an understanding of conducting as a gesture. This text details baton timing techniques; shows the relationship of time, speed, and motion; discusses subdivided beats, the expressive gestures, and the development of the left hand; looks at twentieth-century innovations, and much more. For individuals preparing for a career in conducting.

From the Publisher:
Extensively refined and updated, this new edition on conducting posits that conducting is a time-space art. It builds basic manual techniques--and includes additional band scores excerpts, placed in proximity with the classic repertoire. The text adds new baton timing techniques, and shows the relationships of time, speed, and motion.
From the Back Cover:

Written in a clear style that speaks directly to the serious conducting student, The Modern Conductor, Seventh Edition, maintains Dr. Elizabeth A.H. Green's time-honored approach to conducting technique while offering new insights into opera conducting, career-building, and score study.

Building on the concept of conducting as a time-space activity, co-author Mark Gibson clarifies the pedagogical ideas of the legendary Russian maestro, Nicolai Malko, as first put forth by Dr. Green. The Seventh Edition incorporates into Malko's classic approach a heightened emphasis on the role of the conductor and the non-technical skills that the aspiring conductor must acquire to prepare for a podium career in the twenty-first century.

Among the topics included are:
  • The Usefulness of the Baton
  • Expressive Gestures
  • "Zig-Zag"
  • Audition/Rehearsal Checklist

The student will attain insights into handling contemporary scores and unconventional notation, as well as instrumental and choral conducting and aspects of advanced musicianship in relation to wind ensemble, orchestra and chorus. Important concepts and terms are highlighted to enable the reader to find them quickly. Exercises and drills are included in the text to reinforce critical concepts and skills.
