Still fighting the time battle? Nearly every student in your band program has their own smart phone or a tablet.

If they don’t, a parent likely does. There are dozens of free metronome apps for Android and iOS devices. Go online, select the one you like best as their director, require them to download it and use it when rehearsing at home. Connect it to your band room speakers and use it in rehearsals. Nothing gets a student playing in time better than a good, solid click track.


Directors who make a Difference

For over 20 years, School Band & Orchestra Magazine has been honoring amazing music educators from all 50 states. That's more than 1000 educators recognized for their outstanding contributions to music education programs!
