Clip-on microphone for tuning

Tuning the ensemble is essential.  Playing in tune for an individual is simply not optional.  With advanced tuning applications available on smartphones - especially the Tonal-Energy tuning app (available for Apple and Android and used by many of the best high school and college bands in the country), it is critical that we are able to take advantage of technology in the classroom.  One way we can effectively do this is with a microphone connected to our tunning app that will allow the tuner to ONLY listen to you during a live rehearsal.  There are a couple of options.  One is the Peterson "pitch-grabber" for mobile tuner apps,  another is the Go-Tune "AppClip".   Both will work with mobile apps.  Dont have a smartphone?  No Problem.  Something simple like the KORG TM-50 personal tuner can be purchased for under $25.00 and works the same with one of the clip-on microphones.   Invest a little now, BIG PAYOFF later !!
