Vision for Music
This lecture was presented for the first time at The Rubin Academy to a class of upcoming orchestral conductors and is a perfect lecture for music teachers.

The skills required to read an orchestral score and keep an eye on the musicians is even more challenging. Students of music often dislike sight-reading. Some of them try to learn the piece by heart as quickly as possible. Many find themselves struggling not to skip notes and others just give up. Learning to understand the visual demands of reading music and what can be done to improve the skills required to cope will enrich any musician or music teacher.
