My Metronome

April 16, 2006 at 5:46 AM

I had a really bad day. I have no Easter plans, either. Even the coffee shop will be closed on Easter.

Thank God for my metronome. I’m not sure what else I would be doing right now without it, even broken as it is. I’m sure I will fly through at least three hours this evening practicing rhythm drills on that two-measure passage in my Mozart concerto. Such a feat I could never otherwise accomplish without the steady encouragement of my monosyllabic friend. I’ll begin slowly, and when I finally creep it back up to the original tempo, I’ll cut the tempo in half and repeat the process two or three more times. What fun, what endless fun is the metronome. Certainly, I’ve barely tapped the surface to the wealth of entertainment that awaits me in a metronome.

Just noticed the comments on your last metronomic :P post, and realized I never replied to them.

You said, "I've had bad experiences with toaster ovens." Yes, we remember...that was so funny! LOL!

Pauline said, "Carley, that's a very impressive metronome for a good price." I think so, too. I spent one morning pouring over the Shar catalogue and an Excel table, with a different feature in each column. As far as I can tell, this has the best combo of features as any...wide tempo range, etc...and I've had it about a year or two, and still love it.

Unfortunately, since I was late, I have to post it here instead of there...so it makes very little sense with your current post, but oh well.

I have the metronome Carley suggested, I really like it, and it is well worth the $40
