A friend told me that one of the private primary schools in their city in the Philippines is soliciting for metronomes.  It is a project of their music class to be given to schools in far flung areas.  They found out that it will be a valuable gift to them since most tribes in the Philippines have their own kind of music to be preserved.  But with modern lifestyle, their children are more inclined and excited to adopt the city without realizing that what they are doing will result to tribal extinction. So, I am telling her to check out the metronome at musicians friend because they are on sale now.  For sure this will help her save some dollars if she decides to purchase 2 or 3 pieces for this cause.
