Conductor's school... Still recently an opportunity of it's existence has admitted of doubt. It seemed, to train a trade of a conductor is impossible, just as for example, and a trade of a poet. "Chironomy is a dark thing", - lives in conductor's environment such proverb. It is generally assumed that management of an orchestra is a kind of Shamanism. Musin has illuminated by a beam of research experience all that mysterious, that is connected to chironomy, and by formulating problems, by systematizing receptions, has created a theoretical and methodical basis of teaching of this discipline. I certainly concern not only about engineering of hands, though the teacher gives it a very important meaning and his pupils are glorified of that their gesture is clear, expressive, and economical. I concern the transferring to an orchestra own conductor's hearing of composer's creation, his style, form, and, at the end - spiritual core. The huge teaching Musin's experience is in two his printed works "Technique of chironomy" and "About education of conductor", both books for a long time already become the desktop manuals for everybody, who are connected to treated in them circle of questions. Recently these textbooks were added by filmed in a conservatoire's professor's class a series of educational videofilms.
