I am practicing the no1 Bach Invention in C major. This is my very first piece (just one own composition before). I could not resist trying it

1.) Put the metronome at 220 (=4x55) bpm and no accent
(beat on each 1/16-note).

2.) Put the metronome at 220 bpm with accent every fourth beat
(accent on each 1/4-note and beat on each 1/16-note).

3.) Just put the metronome at 55 bpm.


I Guess that 3. :rolleyes: ) is right. I manage 2. \:\) ) But not 3. \:\( )

Shall I practice 3.)

Göran/Sweden.

I would just put the metronome at 55bpm. Some metronomes are able to put beats on every 8th note, 16th note, etc...you may want to use that. Personally, i wouldn't use the metronome too much. My piano teacher stresses that if you constantly use it you become dependent on it.

i don't think you need metronome at all at the beginning of learning, and it's only needed to check to pace and tempo when you already have it under your fingers. use slow speed when you're in the process of getting accuracy and memorizing, and faster speed for performance.
