So I figured that I could get through my entire piano career (such as it is, non-paying and primarily private) without having to use a metronome. They make me incredibly nervous, and my fingers actively seek out the wrong notes when I hear that tap ... tap ... tapping. And you know, it's not like I'm ever going to play for anyone or with anyone who needs to keep time. But now my teacher says I have to play with the metronome. She even said it was going to be fun! She's out of her mind. Plus, she wants me to go slow. Like 66 per quarter note or something. DOESN'T SHE KNOW I'M IMPATIENT???
