Summary/Abstract: Cognitive processes are fundamental to conducting; they are the foundation of a conductor’s success. The sensations of pitch, volume, timbre, and rhythm, as well as various levels of visual perception, have a potent influence on the quality of a conductor’s actions. A keen perception of time enables a conductor to fix the right tempo. Aural and visual perceptions shape ideas and concepts based on the musical content. The development of these processes in the consciousness through professional experience is indispensable to reach a high standard in the art of conducting.
