There's an excellent Ted Talks video that contrasts Bernstein's style with a few other conductors. If someone digs it up and posts a comment with the link, please delete this comment.

comment How to approach the study of a piece for guitar (Leo Brouwer, Estudios Sencillos no. 6)
Now for the real question: How do you pronounce Brouwer? My memory of high school French is that 'w' doesn't show up a lot.

comment How do you do accidentals (eg. E♭) in solfège (Do Re Mi)?
Well, hmmm. Specifically, I want enough background to understand the distinction between Ti Ta and Te mentioned in this answer. But more broadly, I'd want something actually currently used rather than more academic/historical (although that's welcome, too. I loves me some history).
