Research for: Bachelor Thesis for the Maestro in Music Degree with Major in Opera, Orchestra, and Choir Conducting at the Juan N. Corpas University (Colombia) - Minors in Viola and Chamber Music.

The most important task of a conductor is not only directing the work through the knowledge and study of the score but also motivating the orchestra to play under the same interpretive parameters he proposes. The conductor does not produce any sound but acts as a mediator between the different instruments, temperaments of the musicians, and various sensations and feelings, using only his gestures and energy to achieve the desired interpretation with the orchestra.

Orchestral conducting is an inductive task that requires the conductor to have extensive musical experience and a broad knowledge of all elements of music as both an art and a science. This makes conducting an art in itself, with a study that is extensive and encompasses all the diverse elements and topics that make the conductor an artist. This is accomplished by the perfect combination of Conducting Technique and Rehearsal technique.

This thesis reflects on the application of motivational theories in rehearsal techniques under Complexity Theory framework. Essential knowledge for any conductor to achieve the desired interpretation with various orchestras no matter their level. This comprehensive Rehearsal techniques analysis provide the conductor with the necessary tools to ahive his/her/their desired artistic outcomes while making each rehearsal a gratifying experience for all the musicians under his baton.
