Who says that you have to be an adult with a music degree to become a conductor? Everyone! Actually, no one has ever told me that only adults can conduct music. I just learned through a YouTube video that it is possible for a kid as young as eight to conduct a professional group of musicians at a concert.
You can see Edward Yudenich’s (the conductor kid) over flowing passion for the music piece he is conducting all from his body motion. He sure knows how to read and feel music. What an inspiration he is.
This makes me wonder what I was doing when I was eight. I was definitely not working with professional musicians as a conductor or as a student professor.
