The purpose of the current study was to describe band members' perceptions of important and frustrating issues they experienced in band rehearsals. Musicians (N=159) from three New Horizons bands from three different states participated in the current study. The four administrations of the two-item questionnaire asked, 'What was the most important aspect to you in today's rehearsal', and, 'Was anything frustrating or confusing in today's rehearsal?' Results highlight the contextual components that the musicians perceived to be important and frustrating in their rehearsal settings. Comments tended to be cogent and focused, and conclusions highlight the possible benefits of using the one-minute assessment process for improving adult community music instruction.
