Have you every wondered about the best use of a metronome in the band hall? I have. When I discovered its best use, I removed all click tracks from RhythmBee products, and that lasted for several years. I decided to add back the click tracks so that the teacher can make that decision. |
The video below was created to allow band directors to discover what caused me to remove those click tracks. WARNING: The video's click track will become muted - unmuted - muted - unmuted etc.
To run this experiment:
1. Project this video (full screen) in your band hall.
2. Ask your class (any class) to count along with this video. Click "Play."
3. Watch the class.
4. Note the difference in voluntary attention to the screen when the click track is audible vs. muted.
Don't analyze performance quality. Just note the difference in voluntary attention to the screen.
Comments about what you learned are welcome.
