The object of this microgame is to hit the required instrument at the conductor's cue. If the player mistimes it, or hits the wrong instrument in levels 2 and 3, the conductor facepalms himself, the rest of the orchestra stares at the player, and the game is lost. The instruments include a gong, drum, and cymbals.
If two players are utilized, the player who times the hit of the instrument gets an effort point, while the player who hits the instrument too early or hits the wrong instrument loses an effort point.
