PT48: “Study Scores!” with Ching-Chun Lai

From Gunther Schuller and Frank Battisti, Ching-Chun Lai learned how to approach scores as a composer and identify style and architecture. Today we speak about that and more as Ching-Chun walks us through her score study process, building the most important foundations of a conducting education, and making the most of your resources as a student. Plus, we talk about some of the drawbacks of getting a job right out of school and how to prepare for effective rehearsals.
