Conduct with Yaniv

Learn how to conduct with Maestro Yaniv! (Featuring Jonah)

Questions to Consider:

  • What is a conductor's instrument?
  • How does a conductor make musicians go faster or slower?

Fun at Home!

  • Try conducting your family as they sing a song. It can be anything - Happy Birthday, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Row Your Boat....the choice is yours!
  • Step 1 - Get a pencil or something to conduct with.
  • Step 2 - Practice waving your arms back-and-forth in an up and down motion.
  • Step 3 - Gather your family around to sing.
  • Step 4 - Have them sing as you conduct. Try going slow and try going fast. Can their singing keep up with your conducting?
