    Most people would use a metronome
     
  3. Yes!

    Also, really pay attention to each other and listen to what they're playing. Sometimes it's easy to only listen to yourself and not listen to the ensemble in its entirety.

    I agree with the Metronome idea & Listening to each other. A Drum machine would also work well if you're having a hard time with just the metromone. That way it's giving you the groove and subdivisions of the beat
