a fantastic rehearsal would be:

everyone arrives, sets up and is ready to play ON TIME - instruments tuned

everyone has learned what they're supposed to have learned

you have a PLAN for the rehearsal... if you don't have something specific to rehearse, it's a waste of time

ONE person takes charge of leading the rehearsal... i.e. where to start from, which bits to go over... sometimes it's a good idea to go through the whole tune without stopping, other times it's handy to just go back and nail 8 bars or so

everyone is disciplined and patient... i.e. NOONE stands there playing when you're trying to talk, and if the person leading the rehearsal waves a tune to a stop, you STOP... no impromptu 30 second drum solo
out of here

Well, if I'm understanding your question correctly...

If you're playing a challenging piece, play some etudes which pertain to that piece. Eg, if it's a piece with lots of rapid arpeggios, play an etude which trains your arpeggios.
