If you've been paying attention during rehearsal - you have been paying attention, haven't you?! - then you have definitely heard me talk about practicing with a metronome before. Today's practice tip involves a different way to keep a beat.
If practicing with a metronome is getting kind of stale, try using a drum machine! There are many free web-based options available; one that I stumbled across is called "drumbit" found at https://drumbit.app/
You can set the tempo, create a tasty beat, and then get to practicing! The drum machine keeps the tempo but also gives you something a little spicier to listen to while working on your scales, long tones, or difficult parts of your band music. Dr. Beat was never so fun!
