If anybody has a birthday coming up – or has some extra allowance money laying around, please ask for a “Metronome”.  They are an invaluable asset for any musician, both young and old.

Metronomes can range in price from $20 – $400 – $1000!  I recommend that you purchase a metronome in the $20 – $30 range.  More expensive metronomes can do neater things, but they are not necessary for most people.

If you would like, you can get a free metronome for your smartphone.  You can even visit for a free metronome on the web.  Make sure your speakers are turned on!
