Buying a Metronome

Using a Metronome will improve rhythm skills.

You can choose between the traditional wooden/wood effect design or a smaller compact portable design - Both do the job intended!

 

UPDATED MARCH 2017

I have my own copies of most of these recommended and frequently essential books. It is a necessary expense that needs to be considered when looking at the cost of Piano Lessons.

The way it works for beginners is this - 

There are certain books that are needed and must be purchased. Sometimes it's a little bit of trial and error to find the books that suit the student. My teaching experience means we usually get it right.

Sometimes I use my books in the lesson and give photocopies for practising and trying out for a week or two - and then we can decide which one to buy. This is a useful strategy especially in the Prep Test where there are 4 choices for the second book.
