For artists, the metronome can be the most important practice tool to invest in.

There are several techniques you can employ with a metronome to achieve this.

Setting goals

One popular way to structure your practice session with a metronome is by using it to set tempo goals for challenging passages. The metronome serves as a way to assess and track your progress over time. One effective variation of this technique is to start the particularly difficult passage at about half the tempo (or as slow as necessary to play comfortably) and gradually increase the tempo by one click or BPM (beats per minute) with each successful repetition.

Your djembe drum is an investment, and you have invested both time and money to acquire it. Now that you have your djembe drum, it is important to take care of it so that it functions effectively and lasts for a long time. There are several ways to care for your djembe, including getting a djembe bag for transporting your drum and regular maintenance of the skin.

When your drum is not in use, it should be stored in a safe place to prevent unnecessary damage. To preserve the longevity of the skin, it is helpful to detune the djembe when it is not being regularly played. By detuning the drum, it gives the skin a break and can extend its lifespan. Additionally, it may also extend the lifespan of the drumhead itself by up to 50%.
