Angela,

turning off the visual hasnothing to do with watching a conductor. It has everything to do with developing an internal sense of rhythm. I just heard an interview with a modern conductor today on NPR's Performance Today. One of the points he made was that a good conductor does not keep the beat. Any reasonably good orchestra will be able to do that on its own after the first few measures. The conductor is helping with the dynamics, with the subtlties of the music, cueing this or that section to come in at just the right time.

Every one of us is either a rusher or a dragger. I'm a rusher. I can get a beat ahead of where I should be. To fix that you need to count and to count with a metronome, with and without the instrument. To count properly you need to be looking at the notes, not at the metronome.
