Do batons “choose the wizard”?

We’ve brought in our Music Director, Holly Mathieson, to help us answer this one!

Weirdly, yes. It comes down to the shape of your hand, palm size, hand-to-arm ratio, etc. What you want is a little bit of drag at the tip of the baton, not too much weight in the handle, so that the expression happens right at the tip, not in your hand.
