This course functions as a companion to FS-484 Scoring Silent Films 1, and prepares the students in that course for the specific challenges of conducting music live to picture in a concert setting. It is to be taken concurrently with FS-484. Use of punches and streamers will be emphasized, as well as rehearsal technique.
