Were you recommended using the metronome in your harp practice, but are not sure how to?
Or perhaps you’ve tried playing with the metronome, but it just didn’t work?
Practising the harp with the metronome can be challenging (as you’ll hear me talking about in today’s episode). It’s important to give yourself plenty of time to get used to this type of practice, both if you’ve never done it before and also if you’re going to do it in a new piece.
In today’s episode of the Coffee Break Harp you will learn about four exercises that you can do to practise…
- listening to the metronome
- counting and following the beat
- playing the harp along with the metronome
- gently ease into playing your piece with the “click”
