"Percussion needs clarity from a conductor. They need to know where to hit something."

That made me chuckle. Also, I have suggestions.

poor conductors... the laymen will never understand that the work they do is behind the scenes, making all of the musical decisions and getting the orchestra to actually implement them. Most people genuinely assume they just wave their arms around to keep time for the players
