University of Arizona

Conducting Workshop


Thank you to the many school band directors who participated in the University of Arizona Bands Conducting Workshop held Saturday, December 14, 2019 at the Fred Fox School of Music’s Crowder Hall! The day was a great success thanks to all of you!

The Conducting Workshop, open to school band directors, provides teachers with exciting and innovative tools for conducting and rehearsing school band ensembles. This year our day-long clinic had an exciting new addition—conducting participants were able to try new techniques and new ideas with a LIVE high school wind ensemble! This gave our participants the opportunity to adapt new ideas in a very real and practical setting that allows for rapid and meaningful growth as conductors and rehearsal technicians.

The Workshop clinicians are Arizona Bands Faculty Dr. Chad R. Nicholson, Prof. Chad Shoopman, and Prof. Yudai Ueda. The conducting participant spots are limited and will be set on a first-come, first-serve basis. Unlimited positions are available for observers. Thank you for your interest, and please check back in Fall 2020 for more information on next year’s workshop!
