Hello to our Online Learners!
Tempo has remained a focus in all of our Music classes over the past week and below I have provided a poster with some tempo terminology below which will help you to complete a short written task this week. Under each class there is a worksheet that you can download and print if you are learning from home.

Please print your class worksheet if you can and store in your Music file, so that I can view it when we are hopefully all back at school soon.

Accelerando is a gradual SPEEDING UP of the tempo. Think 'accelerate' like a car!
Ritardando is a gradual SLOWING DOWN of the tempo.
