Four beats to a bar not a simple tap of a toe when there's an orchestra in front of you
While looking for something else, I ran across this fun Channel 4 segment from Faking It two years ago. Here, a 25-year-old punk rocker, Loiner (that's the demonym for people from Leeds, England) Chris Sweeney, discovers what conducting an orchestra means. Even working in simple, 4/4 time doesn't appear to come easily. There are nice cameos by maestro Nicholas Kraemer and his kids.
