Wish you had more time to score study? Join the club! We all have schedules that pull us away from the secret to having a great ensemble…score study. The key is being able to maximize the time you DO have for score study. Learn quick and easy tricks for organizing, programming, rehearsing, and teaching, leading to informed teaching which ultimately inspires learning. The better you know your score, the easier it is to teach the music. Participants will learn/share techniques that will save time and improve your ensembles.
