I have been working with several younger students this week looking a timekeeping and how to play to a CD. Many of the Rockschool grade pieces require you to play to a CD. This is a fixed tempo and students have to learn how to play with the CD and keep in time. This is a really difficult skill but my students have been practicing with the metronome and practice pad to help develop their timing. It's a real skill but once it's mastered it is a skill that stays with you forever.
