Friday, December 7th: Psalm 100
I have to apologize for this week's conducting lab. I was in a horrible mood and this was a horrible day at the end of a horrible week. I know that is no excuse but I was really trying my best. I was not professional and I am sorry.
After watching the recording, I realized that my conducting wasn't as bad as I thought it was. With accuracy, I think it was pretty solid and I think most things were pretty clear. I really practiced all the beat patterns and after I watched the recording, I think I had pretty solid transitions. Also, I think I was able to make a clear distinctions between the repeated sections and the verses.
As you all know after watching me conduct, the main thing I struggled with this week was getting into the spirit of the piece. I was trying my hardest to get past my emotional block but easier said than done. I promise it will be BETTER for the final conducting lab. Also, I thought I looked up more but obviously I was pretty glued to my score. That is another thing I will focus on before next time.
