Improve Your Rhythm - Practice Tips


Duple Meter Metronome

This metronome produces a high click on the downbeat, followed by a low click on beat two. It is useful for practicing music in 2/4, 2/8, 2/2 (cut time), or 6/8 when it is a compound meter and the dotted quarter note equals one beat.

An alternative to using this metronome is to use the talking metronome in duple meter. The talking MetronomeBots are helpful if you have difficulty hearing the clicking beat clearly.

Metronomes in other meters:
Meter metronome in three
Meter metronome in four
