Advanced Instrumental Conducting Class hosts on-campus clinic for Coral Springs Middle School Band

Associate Professor Jay Watkins and his Advanced Conducting class conducted an on-campus clinic for the Coral Springs Middle School Band from Parkland, Florida in the Steinbrenner Band Hall. The band arrived in time to observe a UF Wind Symphony rehearsal, during which Dr. Waybright talked with them about the life and music of J.S. Bach. The undergraduate Advanced Conducting class students each rehearsed a selection with the middle school band, working on both their individual rehearsal and conducting techniques while also assisting the band in improving their performance. The middle school students then took a tour of campus and the bookstore, had lunch in the Union, and then observed a UF Jazz Band rehearsal.
