A guy goes to Vienna to pay his respects to the great composers. But when he gets to the graveyard, he hears a strange scratching sound coming from Beethoven’s tomb.Unable to restrain himself, he pries the lid off the tomb, and there sits the long-dead master, furiously crossing out musical notation from a piece of old music paper. “What are you doing?” asks the guy in astonishment. “What do you think I’m doing?” Beethoven retorts. “I’m decomposing!”
A metronome is a valuable tool for accurate and effective piano practice. Unlike the wind-up metronomes many of us grew up with, todays electronic tools are far more accurate and flexible, with sound adjustments and meter changes.

A flashing light lets you mute the sound if you prefer.
