Exciting New Development For All Members of the NABBC

Conducting Technical Clinic

Whilst conducting bands we are often expected to know how to create appropriate sounds from various instruments, ensembles, various combined sections and, the entire band. New composers constantly challenge us to be more creative and even our traditional transcriptions can challenge the most experience conductor so, we offer our members support from our Technical Clinicians.

Clinical PersonThe musical understanding, knowledge and practical experiences of the Technical Clinicians is extensive. Many of them are also respected professional conductors. We therefore request that when using this unique service we ask that you respect their opinions and note that they are not liable for specific performance outcomes.

There is no charge for this service but you must be a member of the NABBC without which the Technical Clinicians will not respond.

To consult one of our clinicians simply submit your question using the website form for the section of the band as appropriate.

If you are not a member but wish to use this service becoming a member is straightforward. Please visit the Join Us page, download and submit the membership application. To find out more and how this new develoment will work please click on the Conducting Technical Clinic in the main menu.
