Exploring the Class | ShenHao: Unleashing student nature is the ultimate goal of learning conductingclasses

Conducting public classes is one of the most distinctive musical courses in CCPS. It is for the students of the high school and senior high school. The school hopes that students will learn analysis of the works and reading scores on the basis of mastering the basic skills of the conducting, and cultivate students' awareness and ability to view the music works from the perspective of the conductor in actual performance and creation. .

Dialogue– Shen Hao

What do you think the help for the students in setting up conducting public classes in secondary schools?

Shen Hao: There are many ways to help the students in the secondary school. On the one hand, students experience body language through role switching. Students are usually performers and have few opportunities to board the podium. The conductingpublic course is a comprehensive course that can help them adjust their body from another angle and learn to use body language on the stage to improve their stiffness and tension. On the other hand, conducting classes can improve students' ability to grasp beats and rhythms. There is no pitch in the conductor, so the students can pay more attention to the rhythm and speed of the music during class, and express it through sound and form.

What kind of improvement do you hope students can achieve by studying this course?

Shen Hao:
The setting up of this course hopes to make up for some of the details that students often overlook, allowing them to learn about their own profession through other perspectives, such as the role of identity conversion. Some students may never think carefully about what 4/4 shots are when they practice their instruments. From another point of view, conducting can cultivate students' imagination and let them feel the relationship between music and body language.

What do you think is the biggest highlight of conductingpublic classes in teaching?

Shen Hao:
I hope to rel

ease the nature of the students through the course and highlight their humanity.

How do you choose the scores and textbooks that are suitable for students?

Shen Hao:
In general, the tracks selected in the classroom are brief but have very obvious musical styles, such as military marches and pastoral music. These songs can easily mobilize the students' sensibility, and the difficulty of the music is also gradual.

After learning by the students in the previous semester, what do you think students have made progress in?

Shen Hao:
After one semester of study, the students have made great progress. Their stage performances are much better and they can calmly walk on the podium. In addition, the ability of everyone to read the scores has also improved a lot.

Many art talents today are biased toward international and diversified development. Do you think that an outstanding music talent must have those qualities?

Shen Hao: I think an outstanding music talent should have extensive knowledge. The conductor, in contrast to other instrumental performances, although the baton's technique should be the simplest, the carrier it faces or its score is the most complex in the orchestra. This requires that commanders need to stock up a very large amount of knowledge, such as composing techniques, musical history and so on. The same applies to music talents who study other musical instruments. We can't just know the playing skills of the instruments. We must understand the knowledge related to composition and culture.

Can you provide some suggestions for future development?

Shen Hao: I hope they can well plan their own future, achieve success in their professional careers, and enter their ideal university studies. In addition, in addition to learning their own professional musical instruments, they can also communicate with others, learn and gain more knowledge. Students need to understand the composer's creative thinking and the cultural background of the work. They can't just be immersed in their performances, but they also need to cooperate with others. Learn about the music world through music learning and performance and learn how to communicate and collaborate with others. If the students can do this, they will certainly be able to gain a good future career.
