You should get your three cents!

If you train your band, choir, orchestra or whatever, it is very helpful
if the bar numbers are at the beginning of the phrases.
Otherwise everybody has to count "5 6 7 8 9", or "10 11 12 13", etc. --
numbering at the phrases save the time of the conductor. And, it is an
additional way of showing where the phares begin in some cases.
