Lesson 5 - Section 1
Learning About Tempo
As you have already learned, the Time Signature at the beginning of the staff will tell you what size a measure is. Now you are ready to learn how fast or how slow to play a measure. This is called the Tempo. Please play the mp3 file posted under the image and adjust your speakers or earphones as needed. Not too loud!
Lesson 5 - Section 2
Time Signature and Tempo Working Together
The Time Signature tells you that the size for each measure will be four quarter notes long.
Lesson 5 - Section 3
Congratulations. Do you know what you have just done in the previous section? You, my friend and student, have just learned to read and play (tap) your first piece of music!
