Wind Band Teaching Workshop
Embrace. Dream. Create.
June 3 - 4, 2022
The Desautels Faculty of Music Wind Band Teaching Workshop is designed for band directors of all levels and offers a conducting participant stream and observer stream. Participants in both streams attend all sessions, rehearsals and discussions.
This workshop explores philosophical and practical issues of teaching, rehearsing and conducting. Sessions will address pedagogy, rehearsal techniques, gesture, interpretation, score study, and developing ensemble culture and community. This year's sessions will also provide special focus on program rebuilding.
The 2022 Guest Clinician is renown conductor John P. Lynch, sessions will also be led by Winnipeg Band Director, Darrell Chrisp, and Jacquie Dawson, DFOM Director of Bands.
This workshop is held in the Desautels Faculty of Music's beautiful facilities on the University of Manitoba Fort Garry campus.
