Here are the covers and tables of contents of my handbooks “A complete conducting technique“. I use these books in my lessons at the music academies, in my International Masterclasses Conducting Technique and in my private lessons.
The first part treats all aspects of the manual technique to the highest level.
The second part treats the major techniques that can be used in contemporary music.
There is no text in the books, just graphics.
Below, there are two pages: the first is an example from the “general” handbook, the second from the “contemporary” handbook.

As an important part of the conducting technique, I use my separate booklet about fermatas, with more than 100 exercises, ranging from simpel fermatas on quater notes in a 4/4 meter to complicated fermatas on short rests in irregular meters.
