1) Why is rhythm important?
Rhythm is one of the key elements of music. It is essential to have good rhythm and a solid sense of time.

3) Why is it important to practice with a metronome?
A metronome keeps you honest.
4) Can you name one thing that you like about the metronome on metronomeonline.com?
I like to practice using a metronome, record myself, and then listen back. This allows me to hear how I am interacting with time – am I rushing? When I get excited do I get deeper or farther away from the groove? Using a metronome while practicing has helped me with my feel and time.
