conducting patterns


Arm and hand movements by the conductor that create patterns to communicate to the performers the specific beat and meter of the music. These "patterns" aid the performers in the desired execution of the music. The most common conducting patterns are for meters with 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 beats per measure although there are many others used for special purposes. These patterns also are designed to convey directions for the dynamicsexpressiontempo, and articulations of the composition to the performers.
