Whether in a band or a choir we can hear the people around us, even the
conductor, breathe. I find the intake of breath is a solid cue.

Sometimes you can play with a local group. Forget the New York
My student is in college now, and he does not play anymore.
As for following a conductor, the violins have it easy because they can tell
what to do by hearing the other violins. If you played a wind, it would be
much harder because they don't run in a pack like the strings.
Also, as a harpist, I practice my parts with recordings, so when I'm
practicing, I'm playing without seeing a conductor.
Some orchestra or band players don't look at the conductor much. You can
tell during rehearsal because when the conductor wants to stop and tell them
something, there will be people still playing after he's given the signal to
stop, so you know they weren't watching him.
