Practice Tip of the Week
Catch the Metronome game: Set the metronome on one speed. Have the student play just an easy rhythm at that speed. As soon as they "get it", change the speed and see if they can change with you. In the beginning give them 4 clicks to catch the beat. As they get better at it narrow it down until you can change in the middle and they can stay with the metronome.
If you don't have a metronome, you can get a free one online and your computer can click away for you!
