I am a freshman in college and I still have the worst time and rhythm that I know of. I make very bad rhythm mistakes on rhythms as simple as half notes. Do not dispair, it can and will get better. I'm already a much better sight and rhythm reader after only one quarter of college. Although I can't describe a definate course of action to remedy an internal time problem, because I still haven't found a cure-all for bad time. I can offer a tid bit of advice. What seems to work for me is paying close attention to the metronome during practice sessions, and believe it or not playing jazz band. Fear not with time and patience I believe that those of us that have poor time keeping abilities can and will become master performers and teachers.
