A good conductor does not merely tell everyone what to do; rather they help others hear what might be. For this to become possible, they are not primarily a telling but a listening individual: even while the orchestra is performing loudly they are listening inwardly to silent music. They’re not so much commanding as obedient…
The conductor conducts by being conducted. First hearing, feeling, and being lost in the silent music; then when they know what it is, they enable others to hear it too. Music is not made people playing instruments, but rather by music playing people…..

….what is the sound you are feeling….?
…..what is the music of your life?
