What's the difference between "rehearsal" and "practice?"


I think these are used interchangeably but "rehearsal" for me is when you're preparing for something that will be presented to an audience. What do you think?

    Yes, I like your use of "continuous" and "routine" to describe practice. Thanks for answering, Rafiq23.

    Ah, thank you for this answer, TheCranberryBarn. Now I understand why the choir director uses "practice" because her goal as a musician is to get it as close to perfect as possible. The "rehearsal" definition very helpful.

    I like the use of "pre-performance" or "dry-run" to make the distinction. Thank you, Mark, for your answer.

    Thank you for answering, Stargrrl. It bothers me when I hear the choir director use "practice" instead of "rehearsal."
