Nothing too special today. Played with my Improvisation class and in big band. My jazz pedagogy students conducted the big band for class today. I think they realized that being a conductor is more about how you prepare before a rehearsal than what you do during the rehearsal. To me, this goes back to how well you know the music you’re working on, either as a conductor, or performer.
Today’s post is brought to us by the “and” of beat 4, which is where big band drummers should fill to, not beat 1.
