I have been using the Beatnik RA1200 since July of 2008, and it has become an integral part of my private teaching studio as well as my own personal practice sessions. There are so many different ways to use the Beatnik that the possibilities are virtually limitless, and it keeps my students interested and excited about the fundamentals. The real-time feedback provided by the Beatnik teaches even the most rhythmically challenged students how to strengthen and solidify their sense of rhythm. The quality of the Beatnik and the customer service is unparalleled. Plus, my students enjoy the challenge of trying to beat their scores from week to week and view it almost as if it were a video game! I do not remember what teaching certain skills was like before the Beatnik! - Robert Ferrell
