Notion Conducting combines intuitive software, instructional videos, a full-size workbook built around a curriculum of standard symphonic literature, and sampled instruments by the London Symphony Orchestra to create a hands-on conducting environment for music students. The software interprets all score markings and enables the student to continuously control tempo and dynamics with a touch-sensitive MIDI keyboard. Students playing the instruments or sections of the orchestra respond to the gestures of a conductor by tapping on a computer or MIDI keyboard. Only Notion offers this highly effective approach to music education.
