    Smile bring them down like a conductor

    Hello. Would you tell me what 'bring them down' means in this context?
    Can it mean 'conduct them like a conductor'?
    Thank you.

    She raised her arms, counted to three and
    brought them down like a conductor.
    They all shouted together at exactly the same time, "Nerville"

    Re: bring them down like a conductor

    She moved her arms as a conductor of a musical group would.

    She raised her arms. Then she lowered them, in a movement that reminded the author of a conductor.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
