The use and misuse of the metronome is always a hot topic. I wrote and article called Metronome Strategies for Improving Your Timing. This video talks about sound delay as it relates to marching band and drum corps on the football field.

When is it okay to listen metronome or drumline? Based on where the metronome is located on the field, who can listen to it? How much time do I need to anticipate my entrance? For more information and to download the handouts, click here.

Thanks to Andrew Rogers for putting together this video and supporting documents. Well done!
