We are joined this week by one of the most famous classical guitarists out there. A Grammy Award winning member of LAGQ and professor at USC Thornton School of Music, Scott Tennant answers a few questions for us:
1) Why is rhythm important?
Rhythm is what gives music variety and order. Without it notes could float anywhere.
2) How often do you practice with a metronome?
I practiced with it every day when I was a student. Now I use it to check tempos for myself, set goals, and to keep students steady.

3) Why is it important to practice with a metronome?
It helps fuse our mind with our fingers (if you’re a guitarist, pianist or string player), or breath (if you’re a singer or wind player).
4) Can you name one thing that you like about the metronome on metronomeonline.com?
I like its convenience, and ease of use.
