Which Metronome Should I Get?

J is getting better playing his scales with the correct finger placing. However, we need to work on his beat and tempo and thus I was looking out for metronome similar to the one that I used as a child.

What's a Metronome?

According to Metronome Online, "A metronome is a practice tool that produces a steady pulse (or beat) to help musicians play rhythms accurately. The pulses are measured in beats-per-minute (BPM). Most metronomes are capable of playing beats from 35 to 250 BPM. Common uses of the metronome are helping you to maintain an established tempo while practicing, and learning difficult passages."

If you prefer a physical metronome, Amazon has some good ones, and the best known and one of the most trusted is from Wittner:

However, in this day and age, one doesn't need a physical metronome. Online metronome is a wonderful alternative that provides the same function, is easy to use and is completely free!

One of the well-presented free online metronome can found here:

Do you know of any other good alternative metronome? You are welcome to share :-)

Happy practising your piano... or whichever musical instrument you are playing :-)

If you are using iPad, here are some of the free metronome applications for iphone and ipad:
