Set the metronome to play a steady beat while practicing exercises from your lesson book and concert music. Set the metronome for a slow tempo at first (i.e. lower numbers such as 60 or 70) then increase the tempo as you gain confidence and comfort with the music (i.e. higher numbers such as 88, 96, 104, 120, etc.).
