METRONOME

“A metronome is any device that produces regular, metrical ticks (beats, clicks) — settable in beats per minute. These ticks represent a fixed, regular aural pulse; some metronomes also include synchronized visual motion (e.g. pendulum-swing).” Source: Wikipedia

I find a metronome useful when practicing rhythm exercises. I also find it’s a good tool to help you learn to play with other people. Although people don’t play at a perfect steady tempo, using a metronome will help you to develop a sense of rhythm and how to keep up with a beat. I’ll explain during lessons!

I found this metronome at BestMetronome.com. It is the “SIMPLE” model. You can download it onto your computer or use it right now from my website.

It’s very easy to use. Here’s a 34-second video with instructions.

Don’t forget to tap your foot!
