  • Arrive early so that rehearsals can start on time,
  • Come to rehearsals with the parts in the agenda; if a part is missing, notify the head of section before the rehearsal,
  • Remain silent during tuning,
  • Pay attention when the conductor addresses the musicians and take notes regarding musical interpretation requests,
  • Respect the time for breaks,
  • In case you are late, take your seat when the orchestra is not playing so that the other musicians can stay focused.
