Worthy Websites for Music Ed: "Metronome Online"
Remember the "tick-tock" pendulum type of metronome? Those are a bit pricey! As an elementary school flute student, I had a little electronic metronome about the size of a credit card that would beep away on my music stand (if I could locate it in my messy room!)
These types of metronomes can become a thing of the past if you check out metronomeonline.com, an online metronome ideal for quick and easy use while practicing music! This music tool helps with your rhythm, as well as tempo selections, and it is always available for free to all students of music. Just think, it's FREE, and your students can't lose it...it's as close as the nearest computer!
This site also offers a free trial of a metronome for your cell phone...probably worth checking out if you think it would help your "cell-dependent" students practice more.
